This covenant is made in order to have clear communication and expectations of the hopes and beliefs of FBC youth group family. It will be monitored and upheld by all those who are part of the FBC youth. If these promises are not kept then the “situation” in question will be brought to the youth minister and if it affects the entire group will be brought before the youth council representatives, in order for there to be a discussion and appropriate actions taken for that situation.
All those who promise to keep and live up to these expectations show their love and commitment to the FBC youth group by signing this covenant.
