Youth Ministry Rule of Life (General Conduct Code)


Vision:

The vision of the Unity Baptist Youth Ministry is to mentor and equip our teens to develop a faith that exists outside of the church building. A walk with Christ that is dynamic, lived out, and shared beyond these four walls.


Scriptures:

Romans 12:1—"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship."

Luke 9:23—"Then he said to them all: 'If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.'"

The children/teens of the Unity Youth Ministry seek to be SERVANTS.

  • Sinners in need of a Savior (Romans 5:8-10)
  • Ears Pierced in Service to God (Deut. 15:16-17)
  • Reaching Out (Matthew 25:31-40)
  • Reverence/Imitate Christ (Ephesians 5:1)
  • Agape Love (John 13:34-35)
  • Nourishing Relationships (1 Peter 4:8-10)
  • Time is Worship (Matthew 25:31-40)
  • Sacrificial Service (Luke 9:23)
  • Therefore, we act in accordance with our faith and our vision.

Youth Group Guidelines

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:34-35

  • Show respect for everyone you come in contact with, by your actions and your words. This means that making fun of others and cutting each other down is not acceptable.
  • Respect your brothers and sisters in Christ. An example would be, do not talk when someone else is talking.
  • Respect the facilities. Again, an example, do not throw or kick basketballs at the doors or walls.
  • Keep a positive attitude.
  • Remember that you are an ambassador for Christ and this church, and your actions and words can provide a good or bad example.

Youth Group Rules

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship." Romans 12:1

  • No obscene language.
  • No drug, alcohol, or tobacco use.
  • Respect Toward Leaders
  • Public display of affection with your significant other while at church functions is inappropriate. This detracts from our purpose as we meet together.
  • For the safety and well being of all, every meeting and event has physical boundaries. Stay within those boundaries.
  • Consequences of violating these rules will be immediate and certain.
  • Consequences for Disruption Behavior During Class

We gather together twice a month for a period of worship and study. We cannot allow disruptive behavior to detract from our time together and our focus on Christ. Disruptive classroom behavior will result in the following progressive consequences:

  • First Occurrence: Student will receive a verbal warning from the teacher or assisting adult in the classroom.
  • Second Occurrence: Student will be removed from class by an assisting adult. A private discussion should resolve the problem and the student may return to class.
  • Third Occurrence: The student will be removed from class by an assisting adult. The student will be required to notify their parent of their classroom behavior as expediently as possible, on the same day as occurrence. Resolution of the issue will be affected by the student, parents and teacher prior to the student returning to class.

Consequences of Inappropriate Behavior While on Trips:

Disruptive or unsafe behavior on trips will not be tolerated. Disruptive and unsafe behavior includes any violation of the Youth Group Rules as well as specific rules imposed for that trip. The final authority determining of disruptive and unsafe behavior will be the Youth Director.

Consequences will be progressive:

  • First offense: Student will contact his (or her) parents to explain the problem. An adult will then speak to the parent in order to ensure that the parent understands the situation. Appropriate consequences will be enforced on the trip.
  • Example: A student intentionally disregards the physical boundaries, walks across the street to Starbucks. The student will call their parents, everyone will have a discussion. As appropriate consequence, that student will have an opportunity to form a lasting relationship with a chaperone for the remainder of the trip.
  • Second offense: Student will be sent home at his own expense. The student will contact his (or her) parents to explain the problem and arrange for transportation home. An adult will then speak to the parent in order to ensure that the parent understands the situation.
  • Additionally, the student will not be allowed to participate in ANY UNITY activities away from the church building for a minimum of three months. Further determination of appropriate consequences will be made by the Youth Team.
