Cascade Community ChurchStudent ministriesServant guide and application
 Welcome Letter
Dear Interested Servant Leader,I am pumped that you are interested in the Servant Leadership Team here at CascadeCommunity Church Student Ministry (CCCSM). We are always looking for servantleaders to jump into the ministry God has here. We believe that a solid ministry isbuilt on relationships between students and adults, each living life together to reachthis generation for Christ. Both relationships and service are key to understanding
God’s love in practical ways. When these two elements come together, real spiritual
growth takes place in our lives.The purpose of this team is to mentor, develop, and equip students to find atransformational relationship with Christ; and to discover how their passions andpurpose can bring Jesus into their world.We are looking for men and women who have a growing commitment to Christ anddesire to care for students. We are not looking for perfect people, but people whoknow their brokenness and
have submitted to God’s healing and restoration.
We arenot looking for people who view student ministry as an extension of their social lifeor just a thing to check off on your list of good deeds. With prayer and consideration,please read the enclosed material. Because we place a high value on this ministry, weplace great value in those who serve on this team. My hope is that you will read thisand become so familiar with our ministry that you can make a prayerful decision.Once I have received your application, I will call you to schedule a time to talkthrough your area of calling. All information will be kept completely confidential.The questions here are not to see if you are suitable for ministry. Instead they are ameans for me to better know you and how you can best mentor students.
Student ministry is a great place to see God’s impact in His Kingdom. I can’t wait to
sit and chat about how He might use you to change the life of generations of hurtingpeople. If you have any questions please feel free to email or call.In His Grace,Michael LodgeStudent Pastor at Cascade Community Church404-788-9527email:Michael.lodge@cascadechurch.org
