Crew is the student leadership team of High-Life ministries made up of juniors and seniors in High School. Crew focuses on serving other students of High-Life ministries, loving and encouraging one another, and growing in the Lord. Our desire for Crew is that the students begin to learn to be Christ-like leaders, and lead other students by constantly loving and serving. Junior Crew's main focus is Jr. High-Life, and 7th and 8th grade students. Senior Crew's main focus is Sr. High-Life, and 9th grade students.

If you are interested in applying to be part of Crew, read the Description and Objectives, check your calendar to make sure you're free for crew training, fill out the application and get your covenants signed. Everything is due by April 27, 2014.

Adult leadership is a critical partnership of High-Life. The ministries are built upon these leaders pouring themselves out by building lasting relationships with their students. Adult leaders can be found at every event, small group, workday, and any other function of High-Life. These leaders teach Sunday school, lead small groups, cook meals, mentor students, host parties, and encourage their students in all that they do. The leaders of High-Life transform it into a close-knit community that cares for its students.

If you are interested in applying to be an Adult Leader, please fill out the application, request a reference from 2 friends, and fill out the background check authorization (4 forms total).
