LIFESTYLE COMMITMENT

 

As an essential part of the COTR Leadership family, you have a responsibility to develop and exhibit Christ-like behavior. This should be the basic premise of your desire to participate in a servant-leader position here at COTR.

 

While serving the body of Christ as a servant-leader at COTR, you pledge to present a good appearance at all times. In both attire and behavior, you should strive to demonstrate Biblical standards in all situations.

 

As Christians, the way we present ourselves to others is of vital importance to the way others perceive Christ. Our conduct should never be an embarrassment to Christ, but should exemplify the best qualities of a Christ-like servant-leader.

 

CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT

 

As a member of a Serve Team, I understand that I may come into contact with personal information about individuals and families that could be sensitive and should be kept confidential. I agree to keep all information I might encounter about all individuals’ finances, health, behavior, disabilities, and related matters confidential and only disclose it to COTR Staff and Leaders who need to know. I agree that I will uphold this confidentiality agreement whether or not I continue to be a member of a Serve Team, in order to protect all individuals and families who attend COTR.

 

ABUSE POLICY

 

I understand that Church on the Rock is a safe place for children and vulnerable adults, and that Church on the Rock complies with all Federal and State laws regarding reporting suspected child abuse. As a member of a Serve Team, I understand that suspected abuse is to be reported to the staff member who oversees the area in which I serve, or another COTR staff member. I also understand the four types of abuse defined below:

 

  • a physical act directed at a child or vulnerable adult that causes injury.

 

  • contact or interactions between a child and an adult, or a child and another child, when the child is being used for sexual stimulation of the perpetrator or another person. This includes exploitation through photographs, videos, or other communication methods.

 

  • acts or omissions by the parent or other caregivers that have caused, or could cause, serious behavioral, cognitive, emotional, or mental disorders.

 

  • failure to provide for the child or vulnerable adult’s basic needs. This includes adequate adult supervision, medical attention, housing, food and clothing. Most cases of physical neglect involve inadequate adult supervision that has caused harm to the child or vulnerable adult or places them in danger of such harm.

 

I understand it is not my responsibility to investigate and in no instance will I confront a parent or caregiver if abuse is suspected. As a member of a Serve Team, I agree to comply with this policy and report any suspected abuse to the staff person who oversees the area in which I serve, or another COTR staff member.
