Empowering Student Leaders

What is Rush?

 

Well, it’s entirely student-led. Students speak, lead worship, facilitate small groups, the whole deal (even pick up trash). You’ve never experienced a conference more relevant to the life of a student.

Rush into an encounter with the truth, encounter the gospel, and most importantly, an encounter with the living God.

What Happens at Rush?

Engaging Worship

God delights in our worship, and at Rush, we do it in lots of different and engaging ways. Our students will worship through song, dance, drama, games, or even through a video. It might get loud.

compelling Talks

From main sessions to seminars, students will hear, directly from student leaders, talks relevant to the life of a teenager. We believe hearing from a peer is both powerful and moving.

Peer-Led Small Groups

Each Rush student will join a peer-led small group where they will be able to go deeper into what they are learningasking questions and digging into truths from sessions and seminars.

Missions

Part of learning to be a mature follower of Christ is learning to be His hands and feet. Community outreach projects all over the city of Atlanta allow students to exercise their faith and to experience what it means to share the love of Christ.

Free Time

Your group will have time to build community with one another through your choice of free time activities. We can suggest several, or you can organize your own.

Surprises

Rush is run by students … so you never know what can happen! From a surprise food truck block party to a glow-in-the-dark dance party to a 1000 balloon release, each year of Rush brings something unexpected!

What does the Rush Experience Look Like?

Rush 2020 was a different Rush indeed.  We livestreamed the entire conference for those who couldn’t join us in person. 

Purpose of Rush & Student Leadership

In 1994, Perimeter students and staff decided that they wanted to “do something so great for God that it was doomed to fail lest He be in it” (Dr. John Edmund Haggai). They invited others to come alongside them to serve, build community, and learn about Him. They realized students could reach their peers in incredible ways. Today, student leadership has grown at Perimeter, and our students are able to focus on one area to serve such as storytelling, missions, facilitating small groups, and even setting up rooms for different portions of the conference. There’s something for everyone! Our staff sees the value in allowing the students to lead, and they walk alongside them, guiding them, and discipling them in all these areas as these students pour into other students from around the country. Our students start preparing for this as soon as Rush is over, and work throughout the year to develop ideas and put together this conference.
