If you are going to be an adult leader here at Eikon Student Ministries, we expect the following three things from you:
1. Intentional Relationship with God
Abide in Christ - John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” 2. Intentional Relationship with God’s Family
Abide with the Body - Hebrews 10:24-25, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
3. Intentional Relationship with Students
Abide with the Sheep - John 10:14, “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me”
