STUDENT LEADERSHIP

LEADERSHIP IS A CHOICE, A CHOICE WE HOPE YOU'LL MAKE.

Leadership is not another program to attend. Leadership is not for a select few, for the cute, fun, or popular. Leadership is not about having an extroverted and outgoing personality. Being a leader is about a personal commitment. The most meaningful commitments are tough to keep, but they are worth the effort because our priorities determine who we are, and who we are becoming.

THE ESSENCE OF BIBLICAL LEADERSHIP IS SERVING

Jesus expected leaders to serve. Jesus gave his disciples an image of leadership that we use as our standard for student leadership in Redemption Students.

“Jesus called them [the disciples] together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave--just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Matthew 20:25-28

Jesus turned the world's understanding of leadership upside down. His teaching about leadership literally goes against everything we naturally assume about leading. Biblical leadership isn't about power or positions. It isn't about control or glory. Jesus calls his leaders to be servants, and this kind of leadership is not popular or praised. Servant leadership is not attractive to most people. This idea of leading through one's service goes in direct opposition to the attitude one may have of running to the car and calling “SHOTGUN” to ride in the front seat. It may not be popular, but Redemption Students is looking for this kind of leadership - servant leaders.

HOW TO BECOME A STUDENT LEADER

  2. Talk with your family and evaluate the commitments.

  3. Complete and submit the Student Leader Online Application below. 

  4. Schedule an interview with one of our Student Staff team members.

HIGH REQUIREMENTS HAVE HIGH REWARDS

We’re asking a lot from student leaders and because of this, we realize that this program is not for everyone. Many people will not want to rise to the high level of commitment we are expecting. If student leadership isn’t for you, do not worry. Not being involved in Student Leadership does not mean you can't serve. Jesus didn't give us that option-we are all called as believers to serve. However, due to the commitment it takes to be involved in this program we understand that it may not be for you and that is okay. Know that we are committed to you and want to help you continue to grow spiritually regardless of your involvement with Student  Leadership.

Although we’re asking for a considerable commitment from our student leaders, there are also benefits. Student Leadership has high requirements, but it also has high rewards. The following are a list of the benefits student leaders will receive by going through this program:

  • More intense and personal time with the Redemption Student Staff.  
  • Opportunities for training and service in Redemption Students and Redemption Church
  • Connection to an outstanding community of believers who strive to put God first and grow in their leadership capacity.
  • Eligibility for scholarship towards Student Leadership University (see below for details).
