Leadership

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 high school students enrolled in 9th-12th grade this year.
  • Team Placement: Students must select three different ministry team choices. We will do our best to accommodate one of the three choices, but there are NO GUARANTEES. Staff will consider the overall needs of the conference when placing students. We ask that students prioritize serving the overall conference rather than a specific team.
  • Mandatory Attendance:
    • Equipping Meetings: Attendance will be taken.  If a 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 Ministry Staff, and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
    • Rush Week:  Student Leaders are hosting the Rush Conference for their peers and guest churches; therefore, they cannot miss any dates the week of Rush.  The conference should be considered an “out-of-town event”. Students will not be available to attend other events during Rush (e.g. football workouts, work, school, doctor’s appointments, etc.).
    • Production Teams such as Storytelling, Emcee, Worship, and the Dance Teams require you to be in town and available two weeks prior to Rush. Please consider this when selecting these teams. 
  • Clean-up: Servant Leadership students must stay for clean-up on the last night of Rush (Thursday).

Spiritual Health

Your spiritual well-being is important, and we expect you to take it seriously. We all face challenges related to sin, and it is our sincere intention to support and guide any student who may be struggling. If you have any doubts about your spiritual health, we strongly encourage you to have a discussion with our staff before registering. If sin struggles arise that could hurt the way you lead amongst your peers, we will ask you to walk through a shepherding process with a staff member and/or your discipleship leader. We are here to help you in your journey. Students may be asked to step away from leadership if they refuse to go through the shepherding process or if attendance becomes an issue.  

Discipleship Group:Members of the Servant Leadership Team must be in a d-group, regular attending discipleship meetings and recommended by your leader.  Please email this link to your d-group leader to complete: perimeter.org/RushSLForm.

  • A student’s level of involvement in Student Ministry may affect your participation, placement, or role with Servant Leadership.
  • Adult Membership Classes: Rush Servant Leadership students must attend Adult Membership classes OR already be an adult member of Perimeter Church by July 1. The content of the Adult Membership classes is part of the equipping to prepare for leading small groups the week of Rush. View the dates of next membership classes. We encourage students to become members, but it is not required to be on Rush Servant Leadership.

Leadership Equipping

Leadership Equipping is mandatory so please save the 2024 dates: March 3, March 17, April 14, June 2, 9, 23, 30, and July 7. 

What to expect: Leadership Equipping typically includes a large group Equipping component followed by a Team Planning meeting, but some meeting dates may be allocated to team planning only.

  • 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.

Dance
