Personal Situation
MBC is committed to partnering with individuals whose personal aim is to follow God’s desires and maintain the highest level of biblical standards in their lives. Individuals not legally married must abide by a clear understanding and consistent practice of abstention, which includes not living together, married individuals should practice monogamy in marriage, and only heterosexual relationships.

Individuals should also abstain from the use of excessive alcohol or any illegal substance. In addition, individuals may not use tobacco, alcohol or any illegal substance on MBC premises or at any MBC event. Upholding MBC's high standards of personal and social behavior reflects positively on both the individual serving and MBC.

Please note that MBC is open to potentially partnering with individuals who are not familiar with the biblical standards referred to above. However, adherence to these standards may determine which ministry and the extent to which you may serve.


*Is there any part of the above statements that you are not willing to adhere to? 
If "Yes", please explain.
*Have you ever been accused, investigated for, arrested, charged, convicted, or pleaded guilty to a crime (either civil or criminal) involving neglect, abuse, molestation or battery of any person under 18 years of age?        
If "Yes", please explain.
*Have you ever been on probation or been involved with the Juvenile Justice System?
If "Yes", please explain.
*Have you ever had a finding of abuse against you by Child Protection Services or another Child Welfare Agency?

VOLUNTEER CONFIDENTIALITY

All information concerning the children and families served by MBC is to remain strictly confidential. Volunteers agree to keep information confidential that is of a sensitive, medical, privileged or non-public nature and may only disclose such information to Ministry Staff, designated Volunteer Team Leaders or those emergency teams which require information for medical treatment or other legitimate reasons related to client care. Volunteers are bound to this agreement as a condition of being able to serve in this ministry and will continue to be bound by it indefinitely following the completion of their service. I acknowledge that I have completely read and understand the Volunteer Confidentiality Agreement and that I am signing it of my own free will.

CODE OF CONDUCT

As a volunteer at MBC working with children and families, we are asking you to adhere to the following codes of personal and private conduct:
1. Clothing should be appropriate and modest for work with minor/vulnerable adults, and should never display anything vulgar, illegal, or suggestive in content for minor/vulnerable adults.
2. Volunteer leaders will not use profane language, curse words, make crude or vulgar jokes, and should never speak or suggest anything sexual in nature to minor/vulnerable adults in public or private.
3. As a NextGen volunteer, we ask that you ensure that your Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc. reflect positively on you as an ambassador of Christ and His Church. (Good question to ask; “Does what I am posting communicate that I condone, support or promote anything that is ungodly?)
4. Abstain from all forms of pornography.
 
I am aware that in working with minor/vulnerable adults there will be standards and expectations to guide and/or limit physical contact with minor/vulnerable adults. I understand that I will be required to attend a training/orientation to be informed of these policies.
*I agree to the above code of conduct.
