Servant LEADERSHIP Covenant

Every believer is called to be a leader, a servant, and a minister of the gospel. We are uniquely wired by God to use our gifts, talents, abilities, and passions for His glory and our joy. The purpose of the Rush Servant Leadership Team is to glorify God by being equipped in your unique wiring to love, lead, and serve people in your unique spheres of influence. Students will have the opportunity to lead a small group of their peers and be involved in a ministry team. In addition to leading the week of Rush, students will also participate in equipping meetings throughout the spring leading up to the conference.

General

  • Eligible Grades: Current 8th-12th grade students
  • Students are assigned to a Team based on their top three choices (please do not select the same team for all 3 choices).  These assignments are made at the discretion of the Student Ministry Staff and is based on the overall need of the conference.
  • Student Leaders are hosting the Rush Conference; therefore it should be considered an “Out of Town Event”. Students will not be available to attend other events during Rush (ie: football workouts, work, school, doctor’s appointments, etc.).
  • Clean-up: Servant Leadership students must stay for clean up on the last night (Thursday) of Rush. Discretion is up to the Student Ministries Staff and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Leadership Equipping

Leadership Equipping is mandatory so please save the 2023 dates: March 4, 19, April 16, June 4, 25, and July 9.

  • What to expect: Leadership Equipping includes a large group Training component followed by a Team Planning meeting.
  • Team Planning meetings:
    • Facilitated by an Adult Team Lead and specific to the team the student is participating on.
    • End times can vary so please reach out to the Adult Team Lead to coordinate pick-up times.
    • Adult Team Leads may also call additional planning meetings not listed above and will communicate this to students.
  • Absences: Attendance will be taken.  If your student must miss, it is their responsibility to communicate with their Adult Team Lead.  Student leadership attendance is critical to the execution of Rush, therefore missing Student Leadership Equipping dates could result in a student’s status as a Servant Leader changing to an Attendee. Discretion is up to the Adult Team Lead and the Student Ministries Staff and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
  • Storytelling, Emcee, Worship and the Dance Teams require you to be in town and available the two weeks prior to Rush. Please consider this when adding these teams as your team choice. 

Spiritual Health

You will be expected to take your spiritual health seriously, and you will be held accountable. Showing no desire to grow spiritually during this time could result in your dismissal from Servant Leadership and asked to simply attend Rush. Discretion is up to the Adult Team Lead and the Student Ministries Staff and will be determined on a case by case basis.

  • Discipleship Group: Must be in a D-group and recommended by your leader. Please email this link to your d-group leader to complete: https://www.perimeter.org/customform/2409
  • A student’s level of involvement in Student Ministry may affect your participation, placement or role with Servant Leadership.
  • Membership Classes: Rush Servant Leadership students are asked to complete Membership Classes OR already be a member of Perimeter Church by July 1 in preparation for leading small groups the week of Rush. View the dates of next membership classes.

Servant LeaderSHIP Teams

Servant Leadership is what makes Rush “student-led.” You will have the opportunity to serve hundreds of students through serving as small group leaders, sharing through drama, seminar, testimonies, music, keynote talks, service projects, and much more. We are looking for students with a passion for God and a heart to serve others.  Current 8th-12th grade students are eligible to participate in student leadership.

Dance

What do we do as a team? We dance! We choose music based on the theme, brainstorm how to creatively express the major points, choreograph the steps, and then rehearse. All of this artistic preparation is then poured out onstage in performances during the week of Rush!

Host & Design

When any attendee first walks in the door, they are immediately greeted by this team. The Host/Design team works together to create an exciting and inviting space for Rush, spending intentional time designing the look of the space to match the theme and brainstorming ways to impact attendee’s overall experience.

Missions

This team is devoted to serving others and leading missions projects all around Atlanta, all to point back to the love of Christ. If you are on this team, you will work together to plan the best possible serving experience for others and develop your personal leadership skills.

Prayer

If you find yourself desiring to be on a team devoted to prayer and making an atmosphere where others feel inspired and encouraged to pray, then this is the team for you. This team spends time brainstorming new ideas of how to decorate the prayer rooms, make prayer prompts, and pray over the entire Rush experience.

Setup

The Setup Team serves behind the scenes. They are responsible for aiding the other teams with gathering the resources they need and, of course, setting up tables, chairs, etc. to get the room ready for all things Rush. The reward for their hard work is a comradery like no other – for while this team works hard, they play hard as well.

Speaking

Storytelling

Do you love acting, writing skits, film/video, or just being on a creative team? If the answer to any of these is YES, then you want to be on the storytelling team. We collaborate to create elements that support the theme and story of Rush through performing onstage, writing skits, and producing videos.

As a vital part of Rush, the tech team receives training and coaching from professionals to further develop their technical skills in sound, lighting, and video. This close-knit team works together to support the live and virtual program elements of Rush.
