One of my goals for this year is to establish clarity for what it means to be an ALIVE Leader. This is just a mock up and isn't concrete but it's what I've come up with so far and would love to brainstorm with you about it.
VISION FOR ALIVE
We are a team of people who lead students to take next steps towards Jesus.
VEHICLES FOR STEPS
TAKE A LOOK (Schools/Guests)
TRUST (Sunday Service/Baptism)
TEAM UP (Teams/Trips)
WE AS ALIVE LEADERS...
1. TAKE TIME TO BE WITH GOD
We know that the greatest commandment is to love God and we schedule our lives accordingly. We are passionate about prayer, knowing Him, and receiving empowerment from the Spirit.
2. WORSHIP, WORSHIP, WORSHIP
We don't just sing karaoke, we give honor and praise to an indescribable God. We aren't afraid to get excited for the goodness that God has shown us and we push ourselves to remember all God has done.
3. TEAR OFF THE ROOF
We show great sacrifice to help students get to the feet of Jesus. We know that we aren't the Savior but our faith will push us towards great feats in order to help our friends find their next step towards Christ.
4. MAKE IT BETTER
We don't just do things to do things, we take what we're given and are constantly trying to make it better. We don't hold to sacred cows out of fear but rather wrestle with being an innovate team.
5. CARRY OUR TRAYS
We are a team of servants knowing that our gifting is a means to giveaway. We don't chase trophies for ourselves we choose true greatness and are table waiters.
6. POINT TOWARDS THE PEARL
We are known for what we're FOR not what we're against. We're FOR Jesus and we make it a priority to remind each other that there is no comparison to the Kingdom of God.
7. RECOGNIZE WORTH
We know that we're all different and each have our own unique race yet we aren't afraid to affirm someone who isn't like us. We aren't jealous. We speak life, encouragement, and destiny towards those with different gifts.
8. LIVE AS PEACEMAKERS
We are slow to anger, quick to forgive and don't shy away from conflict. When we have a dispute with someone we bring it to them in love and are stronger for it.
9. WALK ON WATER
We believe for the impossible knowing that we can stand on God's Word in the most shaky circumstances. We are a people who take risks and believe for what only God could supply.
10. RECEIVE OUR NAME
We know that we have been given a new identity and we daily fight to believe all that God has called us. We will not let culture define us or allow people's words to hold more weight than God's.
