Be a World Changer

Home / Ministries / Students / Want to volunteer?

Have you ever wanted to change the world?

Student Motion is a great place to start!  We want to be the most welcoming youth group around and the way that works is having leaders who want to make a difference.

Galatians 5:22-23, "The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

Can you imagine what our world would look like if everyone lived out the fruits of the Spirit?  We have the opportunity to help make that dream a reality by pouring into the lives of Middle and High School students.  We may not have the time, money, or skills to go out and become a world leader, but we can still be world changers!

As we spend time each week to impact these students, we take small steps to help them grow into men and women of God who also long to become world changers.  But maybe you don't feel qualified?

Let me clear up a few myths of serving in youth ministry:

It doesn't take tons of experience, time, or energy...  It's not necessary to be completely up-to-date with trends...  It doesn't require a crazy or wild personality... you don't have to be a perfect communicator or Bible scholar...

You don't have to look like these guys:

 

So what do students need from a leader?

Students need someone who will:

  •  love God and live for Him
  •  be interested in their life
  •  believe in them
  •  take initiative to spend time with them
  •  pray for them
  •  be real
  •  say encouraging words
  •  laugh and have a good time
  •  remember their name
  •  share God’s love through personal experience
  •  be consistent in their attendance 
  •  be patient 

THEY NEED YOU!
