Growing Kingdom Character by Tom Yeakley


I found this ten week Bible study to be a great resource for leader development. There are two parts to this study; the first is foundational character qualities: love, integrity, humility, and servanthood. The second part is supporting character qualities: purity, faith, patience, self-control, teachability, and courage. Each topic opens with a reading section devoted to that particular quality which can be read in 15 minutes or less. The study is divided into four sections.

Bible Study: Here is where you will spend quality time looking up the references provided and writing down things you have observed about each topic. The amount of scripture varies.
Memory Verses: Four verses are given with each chapter.
Prayer: Ideas on how you can stimulate your prayers about each topic.
 Exercises: These will help you develop your leadership abilities in each area.
Obviously, the more time you spend going over the scripture verses and the exercises the longer it will take to accomplish each chapter, but it is time well spent!
I would highly recommend this Bible study and I am pleased to give this book a five star rating.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
