Coaching Application

The intent of the following 3 questions is to reduce the risk of abuse in any form on the JesusCares/Groundwire Response mechanism. It is designed to protect those to whom we minister, as well as to uphold the personal dignity of all who would be involved in serving them.

Typically, Spiritual Response Coaches average 2-4 hours per week on the chat line. While you are certainly encouraged to be on as much as your schedule allows, we do ask for you to consider this minimum time request as you submit this application. Knowing that schedules can change and that you are not committing to a set time every week and to assist us in looking at upcoming coaches and our scheduling needs, would you list 3 times below that you foresee being available most of the time.

The information contained in this application is correct to the best of my knowledge. I acknowledge that a printed copy of this electronic submission shall be valid as the original. I authorize Champion Ministries/Groundwire to conduct a background check (NOT A CREDIT CHECK) to determine my ability to minister to teens and/or adults as a Spiritual Response Coach or Groundwire staff member. THE FAIR CREDIT REPORTING ACT, also know as Public Law 95-508, requires us to advise you that a routine inquiry may be made into your background which will provide applicable information concerning character, general reputation, personal characteristics and mode of living. Further information on the nature and scope of such report, if one is made, will be provided upon written request. Any offer of employment or volunteer work is contingent upon successfully passing a background check. I authorize, without reservation, any law enforcement agency, institution, information service bureau, school, employer, Church, non-profit organization, reference, insurance company contacted by Champion Ministries dba Groundwire or its consumer reporting agency or its agent, to furnish the information described above. I release all such references from any liability for furnishing such evaluations to you, provided they do so in good faith and without malice. I understand that if any of the above records contain information which is used to deny my involvement as a Spiritual Response Coach and/or Groundwire staff member, that I will be notified of my rights and where I can obtain a copy of the information. Should my application be accepted, I agree to be bound by the rules and standards of Champion Ministries dba Groundwire, and to refrain from unscriptural conduct in the performances of my services on behalf of Champion Ministries dba Groundwire. If acting as a Spiritual Response Coach, I agree to abide by all policies and procedures as set forth in the Groundwire Spiritual Response Coach Manual and any other policies that shall be set forth by the Coaching Coordinator or any representative of Groundwire. I understand that violating any of these precepts is grounds for dismissal from the Spiritual Response Coach program. I understand I will be issued a login and password and I agree I will not allow any other person to utilize my login and password. I understand the Coach Coordinator may disable my login at any time. I do hereby consent to my e-mail and live chats being monitored and/or saved and I acknowledge I may not be made aware of such monitoring and/or saving. I understand that employment at Groundwire is "at will", and is no guarantee, contract, or promise of employment for any specific length of time.
