CITY TRIBE LEADERSHIP HONOR CODE
As an essential part of the City Tribe Leadership family, you have a responsibility to develop and exhibit mature Christian behavior. This should be the heart of your desire to serve in a leadership position here at City Tribe.
While serving the Body of Christ as a leader at City Tribe, you pledge to present a good example for others to follow at all times. In both attire and behavior, you should strive to demonstrate Biblical standards in all situations.
As Christian leaders, the way we conduct ourselves reflects on how others perceive Christ. Our conduct should never dishonor Christ, but should exemplify the best qualities of a mature believer and servant-leader.
Exemplifying the highest moral commitment, City Tribe leaders strive to maintain a disciplined life of Bible reading, prayer, and faith.
You must also guard against such things as:
● Careless coarse language
● Excessive or irresponsible gambling
● Over indulgence in alcohol or public intoxication
● Dishonest business practices
● Illicit drugs
● Sexually explicit materials
● Sexual immorality as explained in the Bible
● Any other behavior which might cause Christ to grieve and others to stumble
By providing an example in speech and action, we encourage others to grow in Christ and become servant-leaders themselves. This is a way of life measured by the heart and commitment of each leader in the City Tribe family. We should regard it as an essential part of our development, not as an imposition or restriction.
CITY TRIBE CHILD PROTECTION PROGRAM
- CPP Objectives – The program is based on Matthew 18:1-10 in which Jesus is very clear that no one should harm children and woe to anyone who does. The program was adopted in order to:
A) Protect the Students – Students (and parents) need to know that kids in our church are well cared for in a safe and secure environment.
B) Protect the Adults – By completing the character checks that we do and developing appropriate guidelines and boundaries, we may be in a better position to ward off false accusations.
C) Ministry Support – The Child Protection Program enables a ministry to know the level of accessibility to children that each volunteer is given. It helps ministries gain a level of trust in each volunteer, which permits them to focus on their calling from God and to put boundaries in place to ensure safety for students.
D) Protect the Church – God calls us to be good stewards of the resources that He has given us. We believe that God is asking us to use His resources to expand our current ministries and to create new ministries, so that we can reach even more lost people and bring them to know Christ.
The “Two Adult Rule” – This rule says to avoid being alone with a minor (including student helpers) at any time. This is for the protection of students, volunteers, and staff.
- Physical Contact – Rules about physical contact work both ways. Make sure people are appropriate with you and also that you are appropriate with other people. Guildelines are as follows, but please ask a staff member if you have any questions.
A) Appropriate touching would come as an expression of affirmation such as a non-demanding, gentle touch on the shoulders, hands, arms, head, or back.
B) Examples of inappropriate touching would be kissing, demanding kisses or hugs, touching of the chest, waist, stomach, bottom, or private areas, sitting on someone’s lap (sitting on one knee is OK), piggy back rides or anything that makes you (or the other person) feel uncomfortable.
C) Any touching used to express power or control over another person is inappropriate, such as grabbing a person’s arm or wrist, punching, slapping, or poking a finger into another person’s chest to make a point.
- Reporting – If you are aware of someone in your ministry who you think is being abused (or who has been abused), even if it didn’t happen at the church, you are obligated by law to report it. You should immediately contact your department leader with a phone call. No one should ever be abused and we want to be able to help these students. The church has people who are specially trained to handle situations like this, should they ever need to. REMEMBER: You will never be in trouble for reporting possible abuse.
