GUIDELINES & CODE OF ETHICS

FOR LTC LOCAL CHURCH COORDINATORS

As your congregation’s representative for the local LTC program, we first wish to say “THANK YOU” for your time, your work and your love for youth. The investment you are making for the development of young people will reap many dividends today and in the future of the church.

  

CODE OF ETHICS

  1. First and foremost, Church Coordinators must remember that LTC IS FOR THE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP AMONG OUR YOUTH. In order for the learning to be of maximum benefit, the LTC preparation must be the student’s own work. Church Coordinators can rob students of crucial learning when work is done for them. For maximum long-term benefits, guidance, resources, and encouragement must be provided so students can develop their own ideas. With this type of support, they may confidently claim ownership of their work.
  2. Church Coordinators must place their emphasis on participation and effort rather than on competition and winning. The least value comes from winning while the maximum value comes from hard work and best efforts. As Christians, it is foolish to measure success as the world does when God measures success very differently. Competition is only a motivating mechanism to promote skill development.
  3. Church Coordinators must find important and needed areas for our youth leaders to be integrated into the overall leadership of the church. Our youth need responsibilities now that give them important roles and contribute to the church.
  4. Church Coordinators need to communicate these ideas to all parents and church leaders.
