Committee Nominations Process

Thank you for your interest in serving as an elected leader at Resurrection. Please note the deadline has passed for applying for service on Resurrection’s 2023 committees. We hope you will consider applying for service in 2024. Information regarding how to apply will be posted in the fall of 2023.

Committee members typically serve in a preparatory year prior to a three-year term as a voting member. Note that you must be a member of Resurrection for at least two years prior to serving in a preparatory role, or three years before serving as a voting committee member.

Elected lay leaders are required to be Safe Gatherings certified within 30 days of election to a committee. The Safe Gatherings process includes background and reference checks, as well as boundary awareness training, to ensure the safety of our most vulnerable guests while protecting your integrity and that of that church.

If you have questions about this process, please contact Margeaux Seymour, Lay Leader, at nominations@cor.org.

Who & what are the Church committees?

Elected leaders fulfill vital governance roles for Resurrection (Church). These committees are composed of a diverse group of Christ-followers from all campuses who seek to foster a vibrant, healthy, ethical and sustainable church that strives toward its purpose of “building a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.” Below are the committee structure and key objectives. To learn more, reach out to nominations@cor.org.

Church Policies

Church policies are approved by the Church Council and are informed by the expertise of the Church’s governance committees, The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church, and the expectations of the Great Plains Annual Conference.

Church policies are intended to guide the Church’s pastors, staff, volunteers, and others in their daily activities in a manner consistent with the Church’s Purpose, Vision, and Journey. The Church Council is committed to ensuring the Church acts ethically and complies with all applicable laws. The Church Council has adopted these policies to effectively communicate its expectations and create a culture of compliance designed to protect the people it serves and faithfully steward the resources entrusted to the Church.

Policies addressing volunteer, congregant, and public activities and use of the Church are linked below.

For questions regarding any policy or to report suspected violations of policies, laws, or ethical standards, contact Kate Wood, Director of Safety, Compliance, and Risk Management, at Kate.Wood@cor.org.

Safe Gatherings

Resurrection uses the Safe Gatherings program developed by the Great Plains Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church to screen and train its staff, governance committee members, and covered volunteers to protect children and vulnerable adults participating in ministries sponsored by the church.

The Church’s Safety of Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy requires volunteers who have regular, direct contact with any “protected person” at on- or off-site ministries sponsored by the Church to complete the Safe Gatherings certification process. Protected people include children under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults who may be unable to care for or protect themselves from significant harm or exploitation due to mental or other disability, age, or illness.

Covered volunteers include Church governance committee members, KiDSCOR, rezlife, Partner School, Matthew’s Ministry, Silver Link, and Care Ministry volunteers, and mission and disaster relief trip participants. The Church or the Great Plains Annual Conference may add additional categories of volunteers as appropriate.

Safe Gatherings is a program developed by the Great Plains Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church to screen and train staff and volunteers. Safe Gatherings requires an online application, electronic reference checks, four levels of background checks (including county of residence), online abuse prevention and boundary awareness training, and regular re-certification. The Church pays for the cost of all background checks and Safe Gatherings certification.

Safe Gatherings requires each applicant to submit the name of one clergy reference that the applicant has known for at least two years. Questions regarding this requirement may be directed to Human Resources at Mary.Murray@cor.org.

Due to the time required to complete the comprehensive certification process, the Church’s volunteer application also includes authorization for an additional background check through Protect My Ministry.

Resurrection requires adult volunteers to have six continuous months of regular online or in-person worship or service to the Church prior to applying for Safe Gatherings certification. For newer volunteer applicants, the Program/Team Director can facilitate a meeting with the Location Pastor to discuss service opportunities.

Until Safe Gatherings certification is confirmed, the Church requires every volunteer in direct contact with a protected person to be visually supervised by another certified individual. Volunteers under the age of 18 must always be visually supervised when serving protected people. Please see the Church’s Safety of Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy for definitions and additional information.
