Thank you for your desire to support the mission and vision of Dream City Church (DCC). We are grateful for the privilege of partnering with you to serve God by serving others. We understand that due to our diverse life experiences, we may possess differing ideas about how best to serve and love others in the context of Christian community. For this reason, we ask volunteer leaders to commit to the following standards to ensure unity in pursuit of our vision.
Please read through each statement, and if you agree with all of them, please complete the agreement at the end of the form.
I commit to pursuing a growing relationship with Jesus Christ through regular Bible study and prayer. I recognize that I never outgrow my need for further emotional and spiritual maturity. If my emotional needs are too great or have gone unattended, the focus of ministry will be on myself, rather than the needs of others.
I recognize that gathering together in worship is essential to growing my personal faith, as well as making me available to be used in the lives of others. I commit to regularly attending worship services at DCC.
I agree to guard the unity of DCC by refraining from gossip, slander, or divisiveness. I will be intentional about working through conflict with other believers and seeking resolution and reconciliation.
I recognize the leadership of DCC is accountable to God to oversee this faith family. I commit to regularly praying for church leadership and the mission of DCC. As a person of influence, I commit to being a voice of support.
I commit to attending any necessary meetings and training sessions, as well as communicating regularly with leadership. If I say I will be there, I will be there. If not, I will let leadership know.
I commit to serving others with compassion recognizing the Holy Spirit is the One who transforms lives. My job is to love people. The Holy Spirit’s job is to lead people into all truth and set them free.
I acknowledge the Bible as the written Word of God and final authority in matters of faith and morals. I commit to embody the core beliefs and values of DCC and lead an exemplary Christian lifestyle. I agree that as a volunteer I will be a witness to the good news of salvation by the way I live my life (Matthew 5:16). Activities that would constitute violations of this standard would include drunkenness and drug abuse, sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication/cohabitation, homosexual behavior, same-sex marriage, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest and use of pornography), criminal conduct, and physical or verbal abuse. If I find myself struggling with any personal sin, I will seek help, be accountable, and commit to recovery. I also understand I may be asked to step back from my ministry position for a time in order to focus on my own spiritual health.
I covenant to do my best to honor God and others as a faithful DCC leader. I commit to the above standards, especially mindful that people will look to me as a leader.
