Ministry Personnel Agreement Form and Covenant of Care
Having received Christ as my Lord and Savior, and in recognition of God’s covenants toward us, I understand and agree to the content of this Ministry Covenant. I resolve to minister within the church and within the world as a servant of Jesus Christ, under God, and according to Scripture. The following statements help to further define my commitment:
I. I will protect the unity of my church
• by acting in love toward other members • by refusing to gossip • by following the leaders • by being supportive of Parkwood Gospel Church’s Statement of Faith • By complying with Parkwood Gospel Church's Constitution and By-laws.
II. I will share the growth of my church
• by praying for its growth • by inviting the unchurched to attend • by warmly welcoming those who visit.
III. I will serve the ministry of my church
• by discovering my gifts and talents • by actively involving myself in ministry • by being equipped to serve by my pastors • by developing a servant’s heart • by ministering in cooperation with others in the Body of Christ • by supporting, through prayer and affirmation, others' gifts and ministries.
IV. I will support the testimony of my church
• by attending faithfully • by living a godly life (applying Biblical principles in all aspects of my life) • by keeping a regular, personal quiet time of Bible reading and prayer and regularly confessing my sins before God • by giving regularly • by abstaining from any act or attitude that is counter-productive to the purposes of the church or its ministries.
I understand that Parkwood Gospel Church is responsible for the welfare of any person entrusted to my care, and thus I will co-operate fully with the staff in the fulfillment of my duties and will keep all information I encounter in my role as a Ministry Leader, confidential.
