Covenant

I desire to serve as a volunteer working with youth for the NWRCC.  I understand that the references I indicate may be contacted to confirm my character and abilities as appropriate for leadership at the events I participate in.  I promise to cooperate with other counselors, directors and staff and to uphold all standards set forth by the Region and the event leadership.  With God’s help, I will seek in every way to provide an experience on the highest Christian level for all who attend the event which I serve.  I will participate in all training opportunities planned for the event and at all times will conduct myself as the Christian example I am called to be.

I understand this application is good for three years from the date this form is submitted and will need to be completed again at its expiration.
