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 for His glory and our joy, with gifts, talents, abilities, and passions. The purpose of Rush Servant Leadership is to glorify God by being equipped in our unique wiring, to love, lead and serve people in your unique spheres of influence. We believe that students can have a great impact on the lives of those around them where they live, work and play! Please pray about your involvement. It is a calling and therefore requires a greater commitment of time and energy. You are being called to serve wherever God calls you and that might not look exactly how you expected.   

Please read through the covenant and be sure that you are ready to commit. If now is not the time. we welcome you to be an attendee of this awesome conference retreat.

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.
