Student Leader Overview (LIT)
The Student Leader program at Frisco Bible Church is for Clubbers who have previously been enrolled in AWANA at Frisco Bible Church that wish to continue in the program as they work towards their Meritorious and Citation Awards and College Scholarships. Frisco Bible Church neither currently has nor foresees having a full-blown Trek or Journey program but feels strongly about offering a way for Clubbers to attend the same AWANA program as their siblings, continue their book work, and serve the church as a Student Leader.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE
7th Graders and up who have previously attended AWANA at Frisco Bible Church and are currently working in the Trek and/or Journey books.
Student Leaders are required to attend Basic Training and will be expected to meet the Leaders Requirements and to adhere to the LIT Code of Behavior.
Each club week,Student Leaders will meet with the Student Leader mentor at a designated time to recite memory work and have their books signed. 1-2 sections minimum need to be completed during each handbook time section.
Student Leaders set an example to the younger clubbers and as such as expected to be in uniform with shirts tucked in, etc. each week. Full participation in theme nights is also expected for the same reasons.
Clubbers will receive their awards during council time for Sparks and T&T Clubs (last 5 minutes of Club) and will receive Book Awards during the AWARDS CEREMONY at year end.
To earn the Excellence Award, a boy or girl must complete two handbooks or manuals from T&T, Trek or Journey 24-7 and either have completed or about to complete fourth grade.
To earn the Timothy trophy, a boy or girl must complete four handbooks or manuals from T&T, Trek and/or Journey 24-7 and have completed or be on the verge of completing sixth grade.
To earn the Meritorious trophy, a boy or girl must complete six handbooks or manuals from T&T, Trek and/or Journey 24-7 and either have completed or about to complete eighth grade.
For young people involved in 24-7, earning the Citation Award is the ultimate achievement. It represents a minimum of 10 years worth of hard work and service. The Citation is their reward for having spent countless hours attending group meetings, working with children, getting involved in their communities, completing 10 years of biblically grounded curriculum and learning more than 700 Bible verses.
The Citation Award is more than just a plaque for your wall – it's the memories, the accomplishment and internalized Scripture. That's a lot to take with you. And you will take it with you. Some of you will become pastors, some missionaries, Bible scholars, moms and dads, business leaders, musicians, law enforcement and military personnel, athletes, artists and who knows what else.
But, even more than that, you are on a road that is being divinely directed. And the Lord will use your faithful work, your years of effort and the desire to serve Him – no matter where you end up in this world.
Every year we see an increasing number of people who have dedicated themselves to memorizing Scripture, serving the Church and community and walking with the Lord. The growth in the volume of Citation achievers each year is a reminder that God is actively at work in our world, changing lives and raising up young people who will carry His message of grace to a world that needs to hear.
Citation achievement can also pay off in the form of college scholarships. Many Christian colleges offer financial incentives to Citation Award achievers. For a list of these schools, please visit the Awana Scholarships website
