Student Leadership is for students who want to grow their relationship with God through serving. This commitment requires regular attendance in an Impact Group and Axis Sunday Nights, as well as serving on an Axis team. Student Leadership is a place to grow, learn and have fun together.


Ground Control


Ground Control is divided into three sub-teams:

The Welcome Team is student leaders who love making other students feel welcome on Sunday nights. These leaders are committed to greeting new students, helping them get connected, and making them feel welcome to Axis.



The Tech Team is student leaders who prepare for service by helping with lights, slides and sound.  These leaders love learning and working behind the scenes.  They are committed to coming early and staying late to complete their tasks.



The Worship Band is made up of student leaders using their talents to worship God through music. These leaders sing and/or play instruments (sometimes even the kazoo!).  We welcome everyone’s special talents. The Band meets weekly to practice and learn new music. There is a band application that is separate from Student LeaderSHIP.


Regular Axis attendance, regular Impact Group attendance, regular church service attendance, and turn in notes from the sermon. Serve Sunday night at least once a month on your Student Leadership team OR regularly serve in an area of the church approved by Gary. Attend monthly Student Leadership meeting. Fulfill the requirements of the XP Program. While we require involvement, we do not require perfection. If you are looking at the list above and having a hard time believing you can fulfill the requirements, that’s ok. Student Leadership is not a program for everyone. Student Leadership is more than just fulfilling requirements. During your time as a student leader, you will be challenged to grow in your relationship with God, and grow closer as a team, all while having lots of fun. Please contact if you have any questions about the requirements of Student Leadership.

Approximately once a month, you will be serving on your Student Leadership team. Each Student Leadership teams job description differs on the exact tasks you will be asked to do.When you are scheduled to serve on a Sunday night, you are expected to come willing and ready to serve your peers. When scheduled, we hope that your mindset will shift from “I’m going to have fun at Axis tonight” to “I am ready to serve others tonight.”

There are two Student Leadership “on ramps”, spring and fall. In the spring we accept applications from current 7th graders, who will begin serving over the summer. In August we accept applications from the new 7th grade students
