Student Leadership Application

Student leadership has been an incredible tradition at the ROCK, and the presence of student leaders have been valuable to our program and our church.

Expectations

God calls us to go and make disciples, and we believe that our Student Leadership program helps fulfill that call.

Student leaders are expected to actively engage in leading programs at MIPC. There are many opportunities to serve, and there is flexibility in scheduling based on the role and program. 

Attendance is taken at our monthly Sunday gatherings and you are expected to attend church and dinner each month. 

We will allow excused absences on a case by case basis, but these need to be communicated well in advance, barring emergencies.

Other information

Families are required to host* two student leader dinners across the school year. Sign-ups will be collected via Sign-up Genius! Thank you in advance for allowing us to focus on serving and teaching each Sunday.

*Hosting means coordinating with other signed up families on planning the meal, bringing a dish, set-up and clean-up of the ROCK youth room on the date chosen.

Our programs are open to any students regardless of admission into our Student Leadership Program. Anyone is welcome to come and participate, even if they aren't a leader!

Why do you want to be part of the student leadership team?
What have you gained from your experience in the ROCK so far? (spiritually, relationally, etc.) If you are new to the ROCK, what do you hope to gain from your experience?
What three words would you use to describe where you currently are in your faith journey?
To you, what does it mean to be a leader?
What leadership skills would you bring to our student leader team?
What’s one way you’d like to grow as a leader in the next year?

Student Contract *
I realize that there are certain rules I will need to follow during student leadership. I will participate in all activities, and I will be thoughtful to those around me. I will respect my leaders and the expectations that are put in place. I will not bring any illegal objects (drugs, alcohol, weapons, etc.) to MIPC events and programs. With all of this, I know that if I have any difficulty following the rules, the leaders of the ROCK have the authority to make the final decision to send me home and not allow me back without a conversation with my parent/guardian(s) and a plan put in place moving forward.

Parent/Guardian Acknowledgment *
I am aware of the commitment my student is making by signing up for MIPC's Student Leadership Program. I am committing to support my student and their responsibilities during this year of leadership. I understand that this requires my student to attend a monthly Sunday dinner, and my participation in helping with at least two of those dinners in the school year. I understand that this will also include my student volunteering with other events and programs with MIPC.
