LEADERSHIP TEAM

God has positioned you in time and given you gifts and talents to serve Him in this generation.

Our heart ultimately beats for one thing: college students knowing Jesus Christ. We believe God has given us an extraordinary opportunity to impact the lives of college students by helping them encounter Jesus, find community, and ultimately, reach the world.

By being a part of leadership team you will be a part of a small, but passionate, group of students who desire to bring this vision to life. Make no mistake: This is a leadership team; not a volunteer team, and we believe this with everything within us. We are looking for students who, at the core of their being, want to be a part of seeing lives changed on our college campuses in Tuscaloosa, in our city, and the world. We are SENT!

This means you can expect to work hard-- reaching a generation is hard work and it requires initiative, but because leaders lead the way, we believe it is a privilege and an honor to be a part of a team assembled by our unstoppable God to achieve His purposes.

You need to know that we don't pick the perfect, the put together, and the presumptuous. And, it's not that we want you to think less of yourself: We want you to think more of our God!

So, if this is you: We promise we will do everything in our power to help you discover, develop, and leverage your gifts and passions God has uniquely given to you. We promise to let you dream God-sized dreams, and we promise to help partner with you to see how God can bring those dreams to life!

Come run with us. Come and see how God might change you, change us, and change the world!

Our Heartbeats

Our four primary expectations for all students on leadership are summarized by  our heartbeats:

You commit to MAKING THE WELL BETTER
You have a voice, and as a co-owner of The Well, you are responsible analyze and give constructive feedback for ways to improve what we do.

You commit to TAKING THE MINISTRY OF THE WELL PERSONALLY
As Calvary is your home, your community, and your church, you commit to personally impacting The Well in ways that will only make it better and reflect Christ more brightly.

You commit to COLLABORATING
You cannot fulfill your role alone. You commit to leaning on others, their experiences, passions, gifts, and skills to accomplish larger goals for your ministry team and The Well at large.

You commit to REPLACING YOURSELF
You commit to finding someone to empower, coach, mentor, and raise up with character and competence to replace yourself after you leave. You commit to investing in others because people matter.

Additionally, you commit to being a part of COVENANTAL LEADERSHIP
You are committing to having trusted in Christ alone as your Lord and Savior, and you are now part of a community of believers who are living out the mission of God together. When filling out the application you will be asked to commit to being in agreement with the convictions, core values, beliefs, and to committing yourself to the Lord and to the members of the members of the family to protect our unity, share in, and support the ministry of The Well. This is because we believe the Bible clearly states that leadership is stewardship, it is temporary and we are accountable for it.
