23 How does the National Covenant work?

24 Churches become accredited with the Covenant to show they are taking the responsibility of employing a youth worker seriously.

25 To earn accreditation, a church needs to decide two action steps it will take in the coming year for each of the seven promises.

26 A church will initially be accredited for one year but can apply for renewal in two year blocks.

27 Why Would a Church Apply for Accreditation?

28 The Benefits: Healthier Youth Workers and Youth Ministry programs which will lead to more teens and their families being exposed to the Gospel The ability to display the logo on a wide range of publicity, including job advertisements Basic training for churches Basic training for Youth Workers
