After observing and being a part of BCM, reading what is expected of me in leadership, and prayerfully considering my involvement, I commit to the following if selected for leadership for the
2016-2017 leadership team:
I am committed to pursue growing and maturing my relationship with God through quiet times, active attendance at Bible Study, attending a local church, and involvement in accountable relationships and discipleship.
I am committed to carefully making choices about my lifestyle that are Biblically directed, seeking a lifestyle that is “above reproach”, knowing that my lifestyle is a model for others as I represent Jesus Christ and the ministry that BCM seeks to be about in Christ’s name.
I will attend my weekly leadership meetings with staff and events I am responsible for.
I will support and uphold the staff and other leaders at BCM and the decisions they make, realizing I am a part of a collective body ministering for Christ.
