05 Biblical Communicator / Word Gift

The BSM Director must exercise spiritual leadership by communicating truth from Scripture. Every BSM Director will find various ways to communicate with students through Scripture and personal experience to demonstrate how God is leading the group. The goal is to position the BSM Director as a spiritual leader who clearly communicates Biblical Truth.
