The Student IMPACT Standards:

Jesus equipped and empowered his disciples to be salt and light to change the world.  Student leaders are examples of the faith and is watched.  Since leaders are watched we have standards in place to promote leadership, teamwork, commitment, and success.  Since student leaders are to be examples in faith, conduct, and purity we ask each student leader to agree to these standards.  Remember we do not expect perfection, but we need to keep in mind when in leadership we will be looked at more closely. 

1.  FAITH: I acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ in my life and have a personal relationship with Him.

2.  LEAD: I am committed to set up and take ownership of AXIS and First MB Church.  I am committed to my Impact teammates and will show up to team meetings, check group texts, and do what is asked of me and more on Student Impact. 

3.  COMMUNITY: I am committed to connecting with other students and being an example through my involvement and attendance in AXIS (worship and small groups) and other events like camp, SDYC, etc.  Because I know I set the tone for what AXIS will be. 

4. GROW: I am committed to participate or lead at least one D-group a semester (in person or digitally) as well as a personal quiet time with God.  Because I understand I cannot pour out what is not being poured into me. 

5.  SHARE: am committed to living in such a way where my life points people to Jesus. I share Jesus with my friends, classmates, and teammates and invite them to AXIS.  Because I am called to make a difference. 

6.  CHARACTER: I am committed to being an example of Christ in my attitude, speech, dating relationships, and social media outlets.  I will reflect Jesus Christ and First MB Students well in these areas.  I acknowledge leadership causes people to watch me closer and I understand that leaders who do or post inappropriate things will no longer be leaders in our student ministry.

7.  INSPIRE: I am committed to handling conflict in a Godly way and do my best to avoid complaining, gossiping and spreading lies.  If I have an issue with someone I am committed to talking to them directly until the issue is resolved.  I am called to be a source of inspiration and positivity for everyone around me.

 

High Requirements Have High Rewards:

Yes, we are asking a lot from our student leaders and because of this, we realize leadership isn’t for everyone.  If student leadership isn’t for you, don’t worry about it.  Not being involved in student leadership isn’t necessarily a measure of your spiritual maturity.  We are committed to you and want to help you continue to grow spiritually regardless of your involvement with leadership.

However, there are benefits!  Part of the high reward is students receive more intense and personal time with our adult leaders.  We also have planned special retreats and training opportunities for the student leadership that other students will not receive.  A student leader will also be connected to a special community that will be a resource of laughter, encouragement, and support.  Finally, a student leader will help with the overall planning, changing, and implementing many aspects of the First MB Student Ministry!   They will get to decide and know things other students won’t.  You will see “behind the curtain” so to speak.
