Christ Fellowship Volunteer Leader Agreement
Thank you for choosing to serve at Christ Fellowship as a Volunteer Leader. By choosing to enter into a leadership role, you are accepting a position of responsibility. Those you lead will watch you closely and take what you say seriously. Leaders should be role models and are called to a higher standard.
As a leader, your lifestyle matters a lot. Who you are when you serve should be consistent with who you are the remainder of the week. That is why we ask everyone serving in a leader role to commit to live by this Volunteer Leadership Agreement.
We do not want to put you in a position where you feel pressure to teach, represent, or appear to agree with a view on the subjects shared below that you do not personally embrace. Those we serve must see a consistency in our faith and how we express it in our daily lives and in our service together. In other words, “how” we live and serve together is as important as “what” we do in our individual ministries. In both your ministry life and personal life, we ask that you commit to living out our Core Values.
GROW TO GO
Remaining teachable to become usable.
Consistent Quiet Time and Bible Engagement
I realize the greatest way I can serve my church is to grow my personal relationship with Jesus through daily prayer and Bible engagement and staying in active community with my church family. By actively reading the Word and praying, I will live out our Core Value, “Grow to Go.”
Accountability & Confidentiality
I commit to being teachable and transparent, open to review and evaluation, so that I may grow spiritually and in my ability to serve God.
I understand there may be times when I learn a fellow team member of Christ Fellowship has or is currently acting or living his or her life in a manner that is inconsistent with Christ Fellowship’s Core Values and this Volunteer Leadership Agreement. If this involves sexual immorality or conduct which represents a danger to themselves or others, I will immediately bring this to the attention of the pastor who oversees my ministry to determine appropriate next steps.
LIVE TO GIVE
Stewarding our lives for eternity.
Tithes & Offerings
I commit to returning to the Lord the first ten percent of what He entrusts to me as my tithe and to give beyond that as directed by the Holy Spirit. I will give my tithe to Christ Fellowship, the local church at which I worship and serve.
