CBC Kids Volunteer Application
Emergency Contact Information
Work and Volunteer Experience
According to CBCKids policy, all volunteers working within the Children's Ministry must be church members or pursuing membership.
Please list two character references and their phone numbers. It's especially helpful if these people have observed you working with children, or have served with you in ministry in the past. We will give them a quick call to ask a few questions about your character and/or their observations of you in ministry settings (no family members, please).
Your personal information and the answers to the questions below will only be viewed by the directors of CBC Kids, and will be in no way shared with any unauthorized persons.
The following questions have been designed so that we can help promote a safe, secure, and loving environment for children as well as the other volunteers and staff involved.
If you would like to discuss any of these matters with a pastor or staff member, please check “I would like to discuss this” under the appropriate question(s).
Checking “Yes” to any of these questions will not necessarily make you ineligible for volunteering in the children’s ministry at Community Bible Church.
As it relates to abuse:
Many people have experienced abuse at the hands of others. Most victims of abuse abhor such behavior and are especially alert and sensitive to the need to provide a safe and caring environment for children. At the same time, residual effects may remain in some people’s lives, including a hesitancy to report suspected child abuse, which is why we ask this question.
As it relates to questions 1-4:
If you've experienced any of the above issues that continue to be a source of struggle, our heart is to care for you well. It would be helpful for us to speak with the person(s) that is walking through it with you and keeping you accountable. Please provide contact information in the space provided.
Please answer ALL questions to the best of your knowledge and with honesty.
