A leader in a summer program has a great responsibility of establishing other Christians in their faith. Because of this, the Navigators have developed criteria that we think a team leader would need to have:

1.

Consistent in the basics of Word, prayer, fellowship, and witnessing; is under the Lordship of

Christ; and has been growing in these areas for a period of time

2.

Has developed a heart for God

3.

Is willing to make sacrifices to grow

4.

Is involved in ministry on their campus

5.

Has attended a Navigator program (exceptions may be made for this)

6.

Demonstrates humility through a teachable/learner’s heart

In light of the criteria listed, we would like you to assess yourself in the following questions:

Can you identify the time in your life in which you personally believed and became a genuine follower of Christ?

Briefly describe how you came to know Christ personally

How long have you been growing in your relationship with Christ?_______________________________

LORDSHIP

One definition of Lordship is that a person puts Christ first in the major areas of life and is taking steps to separate from sin. In light of this definition, tell us about how Jesus is becoming more central to your life?

PURITY

1 Thessalonians 4:3 “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality.”

We recognize that all people are sinners and that God desires us to “flee from the sin that so easily entangles” and pursue Jesus. Please describe any sexual sin that may have an impact on you during this program, as well as the frequency of your involvement. Please also describe what you are currently doing to pursue holiness in these areas. An example would be, “I have used pornography for years, and currently use it weekly. I have a peer group

where I can be open with my struggles and pray with weekly.” Or “Last year I ended an unhealthy relationship with

my ex-boyfriend/girlfriend. We had sex, but since have confided in a close friend/staff member.” These answers

will be kept confidential and gender specific. This will not necessarily disqualify you as a team leader, but rather will help you be shepherded better over the course of the summer.

WORD

In what ways have you been building God’s word in your life?

Hearing God’s Word at church

Reading the Bible

Personal Bible Study

Briefly describe each of the above answers:

Scripture memory

What is something that you have learned from God’s word recently?

PRAYER

FELLOWSHIP

What key components do you desire in a true fellowship with other brothers and sisters in Christ?

Are you involved in a significant dating relationship? __________ If yes, how do you see it affecting your summer?

Church affiliation and involvement:
