What a blessing that you are desiring to serve the Lord through ministry at Calvary Chapel St. George! Jesus exhorts us to be good stewards of the ministry (Luke 12:42) and to be accountable to each other, so the ministry uses a very straight forward and streamlined process to allow believers to serve. It includes the following:
- Ministry Questionnaire. This is a two page document that you fill out that requests basic information about you, where you would like to serve, and an opportunity for you to describe your ministry experience, and your Christian walk. Your answers to the questions are not used to “qualify” or “disqualify” you. For instance, one question asks, “Have you been water baptized?” You may or may not have had that opportunity yet, however, it is not a requirement for serving the Lord.
- Background Check. It is a requirement that everyone who desires to serve the Lord in ministry at CCSG authorize CCSG to run a background check. The intent is not to pry, however, there is a responsibility to be accountable to everyone who calls CCSG their home church as well as our visitors. To that end it is necessary for you to fill out and sign this form:
- Background Information and Authorization Consent Form. This collects the pertinent information needed to run a background check. A photocopy of your Driver’s License is required as well. This form also allows CCSG to actually run a background check. Without your consent the check cannot and will not be run.
- What We Believe. This is for your review and for you to keep so that you understand the heart of Calvary Chapel St. George, what we believe and the biblical basis for those beliefs.
Once you have filled out the questionnaire and forms, please return them to CCSG office so that it can be processed by the ministry staff. After this you should expect someone to contact you within a week to follow up and help you get plugged in. If you have any questions, please reach out to us. Thanks and God Bless!
