Houston Area Celebration #23 Staff Covenants

Celebration is an opportunity to serve as Christ's representative to others. If I am selected for a staff role at Celebration #23, I agree to:

  • serve other participants and staff during the weekend, which means I may have to make appropriate personal sacrifices in order to live out my faith and demonstrate the love of Christ.
  • attend the training session on June 15, 2019, so that I am spiritually and mentally prepared to serve the Celebration participants in my assigned role.
  • write one piece of handwritten Caritas for each participant and one piece of handwritten Caritas for each staff member. I will turn this Caritas in to the Head Caritas Gopher upon my arrival at camp. Caritas for participants, in all of its forms, will be my first priority.
  • serve the participants with energy, imagination, enthusiasm and unconditional love, abiding by the necessary bedtimes set by the Moderator in order to do so. I also agree to model appropriate Christian behavior, actively participating in all group activities during the weekend.
  • refrain from use of any illegal drugs or prescription drugs not prescribed for me, including all alcohol and tobacco products. I understand that the consequences of breaking this covenant are loss of my staff role and having to leave the Celebration weekend.
  • agree to submit to a background check and special training if I will be 18 by the time of HAC #23.
  • accept and respect the decisions of the adult leaders during the weekend.
