I understand that the Volunteer Chaplain receives approval from the Chaplaincy Ministry of the Florida Baptist Convention. I will support the policies and guidelines as set forth by the State Director of Chaplaincy Ministry.

I understand that the State Director of Chaplaincy Ministries may withdraw their approval should I prove by temperment, disposition, attitude, conduct or otherwise to misrepresent the position of Volunteer Chaplain. I agree to abide by the State Director of Chaplaincy decisions related to my FBC approval as a Volunteer Chaplain.
