Dear Potential Student Leader,

We are so excited that you are interested in joining Student Leadership (SL) at High School Ministry (HSM)!

You may have heard people call high school students “the next generation” or the “future of the church,” we believe you are an essential part of the body of Christ right now. Whether you’re 14 or 64, if you are a believer in Christ, you have been called to serve God and serve other people. We believe God has called all of us into a life characterized by selflessness, love, and humility. HSM's Student Leadership is a team through which we want to equip and empower students who feel the call to lead other individuals with a Christ-like attitude.

We want your involvement in this team to spring from your understanding that God loves you unconditionally and that serving Him isn’t about earning your place in Heaven—Christ already did that for you. As a believer in Christ, each one of you was created, saved, and gifted for ministry. He has given you gifts, experiences, and qualities that He wants you to use, not just at church, but also at home, at school, on your sports team, etc.

We are not looking for students who view Student Leadership as just an extension of their social life. We are not looking for students who are motivated by recognition, reputation, rank or reward. This isn’t the cute, fun popular club at church. Instead, we welcome students who have a desire to care for and love others in order to glorify God. We are looking for students who are serving in all aspects of their lives and who are willing to be spiritual leaders to those around them. We want students who are motivated by the fact that they are loved by Jesus Christ, the One who set the ultimate example of service for us.

Mark 10:45 (NLT): The Son came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.

 We want to train, develop and disciple student leaders so that they are equipped to better serve their church, schools, and communities. We want to see students grow and discover their gifts and abilities so that they can use them to glorify God. We want HSM to be a place where students are encouraged to not only cast a vision, but to execute it as well, believing in the truth that they are empowered by the Holy Spirit and supported by the family of Christ around them.

 Please carefully read the following material with prayer and careful consideration to see if the Student Leadership team is something God is leading you to join. Again, we are so excited to have you considering becoming part of this team. We love you!

~The High School Ministry Team


We live in a world full of people who need Jesus. Our families. Our schools. Our communities. Our state. Our country. In every corner of the world, you can find places to give love, share joy, and let the light of Christ shine. The Student Leadership team is a group of people shining so brightly with God’s love that our families, our schools, our communities clearly see God’s love.

We strongly believe that God is doing an incredible work in our area and we believe that building up a team of student leaders is crucial to accomplish what He is doing.

Romans 5:8 (NLT): But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

We believe that God wants to do great things through you, and we believe that begins with having an attitude of humility before God. We are hoping that the humble mentality God gives you will lead you into a life of serving others.

We want to be a community of people who serve together, who seek God together, and who pray together for God to show us what He wants to do in and through us.

We want to disciple you, and we are hoping you will allow us to do that.

1 Timothy  4:12,16 (NLT): Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity…Keep a close watch on how you live and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right for the sake of your own salvation and the salvation of those who hear you.
