COVENANT FOR LEADERS OF CHILDREN AND YOUTH
I consider this a vow to God and a covenant between myself, CCPC, and the children and youth with whom I work and their families.
I will live as a Christian called to service in God’s kingdom.
I understand that I have been entrusted with the safety and welfare of all the children and youth assigned to me. At all times I will guard their physical safety and mental, emotional and bodily health.
I understand that I have been entrusted with the spiritual health of all the children and youth assigned to me. At all times I will care for their faith development.
I will take care of my own physical and spiritual health.
I understand that I must be careful of ”suggestive” situations. I will never be alone with the child or youth in my care. If someone requests time alone with me, we will meet inside of others, but not necessarily where others can hear us.
I will never touch a child or youth in anger.
I will use appropriate signs of affection and Christian caring. I will respect the feelings of those who do not enjoy even the slightest casual touch.
I will guard my language. I will not swear or use inappropriate language in the presence of youth and children.
I will set a good example of respecting the property and I will be a good steward of God’s earth.
