DETAILS ON THE APPLICATION

Personal Information: Please provide your current information as listed. For your vocation, please mention your current college or seminary, or your year of graduation, if applicable. Also, please mention what line of work you are currently employed in.

Ministry Information: Please provide us with as much information about your skills in the area for which you are applying in order and about your leadership abilities in general to give us a sense of your talents and experience. If you are a return leader, please state such and mention any areas of growth or hope for improvement in this coming season.

Confession of Faith: Since the Chapel is a confessional ministry under the direction of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, leaders are asked to adhere to the Westminster Confession of Faith. If an applicant does not agree with any point within the WCF, the Director will discuss the particulars with the applicant in order to come to an understanding with them.

Spiritual Goals: All applicants are asked to describe their current walk of faith and to consider an area for growth over the summer. This area may be of a spiritual, emotional, personal, or communal nature, or whatever kind of area that they chose. The Director will meet with each individual at the end of the summer to discuss how they grew over the season and to encourage them in their walk with the Lord. After selecting an area, please talk to two or more people in your regular circles of fellowship and ask them to encourage you, keep you accountable, and pray for you over the summer as you seek growth in the Lord. Finally, please select several Bible passages that you will commit to studying individually to help you grow in the area you have chosen. You will be given a booklet by Jay E. Adams called Four Weeks with God and Your Neighbor to study in the beginning of the season and afterwards you will focus on the Scriptures of your choice as the Lord works in your heart.

Summer Details: Please list the dates of your availability for the summer, as well as listing any dates that you expect that you will need to be away for the summer due to family, church, or conflicting ministry events. If any leader or staff member is away for more than a week, they ordinarily are asked to forfeit some of their days off for the remainder of the summer. Please note that part of your leadership responsibility is to reply to the Admin Assistant’s emails within a one-week time frame. Failure to do so will result in a warning from the Director and repeated neglect in this area is grounds for dismissal.

Session Recommendation: Please read the included letter from the Director for your pastor and other church leaders thoughtfully and carefully. If you believe the points of discussion to be true for yourself, please write your name in the blank and then give the letter to your session for their next meeting. After they have met and made a decision, your pastor and session should reply to the Director by email and we will notify you about the status of your application.
