Section 1: RESPONSIBILITIES OF CHURCH LEADERSHIP



Persons designated as Clergy, meaning those persons holding a License To Ministry, and/or holding both a License To Ministry and having been Ordained in Ray Of Hope Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ; The Council Of Ray Of Hope Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the "Leadership Committees" of Ray Of Hope Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and all persons in Leadership as defined in the bylaws have a fiduciary obligation to the church to act in good faith and in the best interests of this Christian Community which has elected and appointed them to do so. The term "Fiduciary" is derived from a Latin word meaning "held in trust." Persons holding places of leadership are entrusted to comply with the highest Gospel Ethics, and thereby are expected to comply with certain legal obligations. When leadership fails to do this, our organization, and sometimes the individuals in leadership may be held responsible, or liable for the failure, especially when another person is victimized in an incident deemed to have been the responsibility of Ray Of Hope Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and/or its leaders.

It is the goal of the Ray Of Hope Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ Clergy, Council, members, and attendees to uphold the highest possible Christian ethics in all matters regarding our life together as a Christian Community. This policy is intended to assist us in this standard.
