1 3 rd Degree Student Leader Application Dear Student, You have a unique opportunity to play a key role in the success of our ministry! As a member of the Student Leadership Team you will help cast vision for how the ministry should grow/change. You will also plan and implement a number of different events. Above all, you will grow deeper in your relationship with Christ and will be equipped with leadership skills that will help you lead not only in our ministry, but in the church and the world beyond graduation. This will not be an easy task. It will require your time, your heart, and your commitment. Purpose: We believe the natural extension of discipleship is leadership.

4 Student Leader Covenant Being a student leader is a serious responsibility. It requires being a leader worth following. You cannot expect anyone to respect you as a leader and follow your leadership unless you are willing to live like a leader should. As a part of the responsibility of being a student leader you are asked to agree to each of the statements below: Relationship with God: I will make my personal relationship with God the number one priority in my life. I will seek to grow by spending time daily with God, finding a spiritual mentor, and surrounding myself with Christians who will challenge me in my faith. Godly lifestyle: As a student leader I understand how I lead my personal life will greatly affect my ability to lead. I will be careful to remain pure in dating relationships and avoid alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and pornography. Attend All Leadership Team Meetings: I am committing to attend all Leadership Team meetings. If I have a conflict that is unavoidable I will contact the Team Leader at least one week before the meeting. I understand that if I miss meetings without talking to the Team Leader I may be asked to resign the team. Regular Involvement in Youth Group: I understand that as a student leader I need to regularly attend youth group functions. Personal Development: I realize that the Student Leadership Team is focused on developing me as a leader. I commit to doing all the work necessary to becoming a better leader. Sacrifice for Others: I understand that I will be asked to sacrifice for others as a leader. I will make that sacrifice willingly. Defend the Team: I will never talk bad about any other member of the Leadership Team. I will keep all problems within the confines of the team and commit to working them out. Pursuit of Excellence: I am willing to pursue excellence in all I do as a student leader. Signed: Date:
