What is expected of a Student Leader?

A Student Leader is expected to live a life that models what it means to follow after Christ, in other words, a “no doubt” lifestyle: there is no doubt you are a follower of Jesus Christ. We ask leaders to model our vision and purposes. Each Student Leader is expected to live out and model God’s purposes.

 

What are the benefits of the being on the Student Leadership Team.

  1. Develop leadership skills that will benefit you throughout your life.

  2. Get to spend extra time with Adult Leaders who are devoted to helping you succeed.

  3. See God use you to further His Kingdom.

  4. Know you had a large part in helping “The Well” grow.

  5. Grow closer to God and the group.

  6. Of course some special privileges and lots of FUN too!

 

Can someone get kicked off of the Student Leadership team?

No, but a member of this team can make the choice to leave. We follow a “three strikes, you’re out” rule:

  1. Lateral accountability (Student-to-Student accountability).

  2. Adult Leader meets with Student Leadership Team member, and they discuss problem and possible solutions.

  3. Student Ministries Pastor meets with Student Leadership Team member, and if problem is not resolved, Student Leader chooses to leave Student Leadership Team.

 

            Student Leadership

God’s Word tells us leaders are to live by a higher standard. Often people mistake leadership as a position, a title, or a place where one can be popular and powerful. This isn’t true leadership. True servant leadership is using your influence to serve others. The Student Leadership Team is for teenagers who are willing to do what it takes to rise to a higher standard to be key influencers in extending the kingdom of God.

 

 

Standards of the Student Leadership Team

  1. Leaders lead by example. It is impossible to lead without consistent attendance and participation. We ask that all student leaders be present and on-time at the following:

  1. Sail-up Weekend Well Brunch on either Saturday, August 4th (arrive by 5pm) or Sunday, August 5th (arrive by 10am).

  2. Student Leadership Training August 31st-September 1st and Student Leader Secret Mission on September 1st.

  3. Weekly services, including the Weekend Well and Middle School or High School Youth Nights.

  4. For High Schoolers, serve as an Assistant Leader for Middle School Youth Nights or Wednesday Children’s Ministry each week and arrive at least 30 minutes before you serve and attend the Monthly Leader Meetings 8:15-8:45pm (Middle School Leaders only).

  5. Student Leadership Lab event planning meetings on the 2nd Sunday of each month 1-2:30pm during September, October, November, and December.

  6. Other Student Ministry events as you are able. Examples include Flag Football Tournament or      

       Christmas Coffeehouse.

  1. High School Students leading during Middle School Youth Nights or Wednesday Children’s Ministry must also regular attend either High School Youth Nights or Weekend Well or both.

 

** We realize that because of time demands and schedules, there will be times that someone has to miss some things. We only ask for COMMUNICATION IN ADVANCE (at least 3 days ahead). Please contact Pastor James at 863-409-1278.

 

  1. A Student Leader must model a servant attitude. Mark 10:45 says, “The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others” (NLT). Serving others is the focus rather than pride, ego, and boasting.

  2. Student Leaders must have a personal relationship with Christ and are expected to have a regular time alone with God in prayer and reading God’s Word.

  3. A Student Leader must be active on at least two Major Events Planning Team. High Schoolers may choose to be on one Major Events Planning Team and then to serve as Assistant Leaders on Wednesdays. All Student Leaders are expected to look out for and welcome new students and help them adjust to “The Well”. In addition, Student Leaders should be eager to help whenever they see a need.

  4. A Student Leader is expected to live out Ephesians 4:29, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen” (NIV). Student leaders are to be positive and encouraging. If there is a problem among the group, students are expected to talk with the leader about it, not other students. Student Leaders are expected to support the Student Ministries Staff and Adult Leadership team.

  5. We request that obvious Biblical convictions and standards be upheld.

  6. A Student Leader must live by a HIGHER STANDARD. The Bible commands us to “abstain from even the appearance of evil” (1 Thess 5:22 ). Those in leadership should have a godly hatred of sin and should be willing to walk away from anything that might have the appearance of evil. Students are expected to avoid alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Students are also expected to not allow themselves to be places that could appear to be a hindrance to their witness.
