My Covenant Of Membership

My ability to interpret my call, minister to others, and live in relation to them is immediately and entirely dependent upon the health of my personal relationship with God.  I COVENANT TO foster and protect that relationship by seeking a disciplined, prayerful life through spiritual practices, Sabbath, self-care, balance, and acknowledgement of the integrity of my call.

Flowing from that relationship is the natural outpouring of ministry evident in any life changed by God.  Toward that vocation, regardless of employment or fiscal compensation, I COVENANT TO cultivate and honor the gift of my ministry as I mature in my faith and become more Christ-like i my behavior.  I will model authenticity as I teach, strive to be a life-long learner, keep an open mind, follow Wesleyan practices, and maintain appropriate boundaries.

Recognizing that God’s perfect expression of our ministry is best breathed through many voices in the lives of youth, I COVENANT TO cherish and participate in the conversation of faith formation by being in community with other adults for mutual support and accountability through the offering of my prayers, my presence, my gifts, my service, and my witness.

Covenant Points:
     1) God & Self
     2) God, Self & Ministry
     3) God, Self, Ministry & Community
