I am submitting this application to the Alliance as part of the Endorsement Process of the Alliance. I agree to cooperate with the Alliance, and to abide by all decisions of the Alliance.
I understand and agree that the Alliance has the sole authority to grant or deny Endorsement,
in its sole discretion, and that the decision of the Alliance to grant or deny endorsement is final and not subject to appeal or review. Further, if the Alliance should determine that my endorsement should be withdrawn, I agree to abide by that decision, which I agree shall be final and shall not be subject to review. I understand that there is no contractual right to endorsement by the Alliance, that the Alliance may decide to withdraw my endorsement in its discretion at any time, and that I will have no legal claim of any kind against the Alliance as a result of any decision to grant, deny or withdraw endorsement.
I confirm that the information provided on this application, and any information I may provide at any time during the application process, is accurate and complete. I understand that the Alliance will rely on the statements I am making in this application and during the application process.
I agree that all of the information provided in this application and in the application process may be verified by the Alliance or anyone acting on behalf of the Alliance. I authorize the Alliance, or anyone acting on their behalf, to make any and all contacts necessary to verify my history of prior employment, and to inquire regarding any prior arrest, criminal records, professional, religious, or judicial proceedings involving me as a defendant. I authorize the Alliance, or anyone acting on their behalf, to make whatever contacts the Alliance considers necessary in order to obtain any other information the Alliance considers necessary in order to decide on my Application, including but not limited to contacting individuals, churches and organizations listed on this Application as references.
I hereby authorize previous employers, any pastoral care organizations, and any religious judicatory and/or any law enforcement or judicial authority to release any and all requested information about me. I hereby authorize any individuals, churches, or other organizations listed on this Application to provide any and all requested information directly to the Alliance or anyone acting on their behalf. I agree to sign any additional authorizations that may be necessary for the Alliance to obtain this information. I will pay for any additional costs for the mandatory background check.
I have thoroughly read this document, and I understand its terms. I understand fully that the information obtained from other parties may be used to deny my endorsement from the Alliance of Baptists. I understand that the Alliance has no independent obligation to verify the accuracy of any information received from those other parties.
I understand and agree that being endorsed by the Alliance of Baptists does not create any employment relationship with the Alliance, or establish any other kind of supervisory relationship with the Alliance. I agree that if I am endorsed by the Alliance of Baptists, I will not tell anyone that I have any kind of employment or supervisory relationship with the Alliance.
I understand and agree that the Alliance is relying upon the accuracy and completeness of my statements in this Application, and during the Application process, in making any decisions about Endorsement. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Alliance against any claims against the Alliance based upon or arising from (i) any actions I may take during the time that
I am Endorsed by the Alliance, or (ii) any information that I have supplied to the Alliance as part of this process. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Alliance against any claims based upon or arising from any statements that I may make that misrepresent the nature of my relationship with the Alliance. Finally, I hereby release any and all claims that I may have against the Alliance as a result of my Application for Endorsement, including without limitation claims based upon or arising from (i) actions that the Alliance may take in contacting any third-party as part of that process, or (ii) any actions that the Alliance may take during the time that the Alliance has granted me Endorsement, or (iii) any decision by the Alliance to deny Endorsement or to withdraw Endorsement once granted.
