Hub/Site Agreement

  1. Site leadership. The Church agrees to designate the following leaders for VI-related activities, and to ensure that these leaders carry out their responsibilities in the following ways:
    1. “Site Pastor”: The Site Pastor shall be an ordained pastor in the Site Church who shall provide pastoral oversight for VI students. The Site Pastor’s responsibilities shall include:
      • Site Coordinator appointment: appointing a site coordinator to handle the administration of the VI Site. This can be the Site Pastor, but VI recommends that someone else is appointed due to the many responsibilities that pastors already typically have.
      • Student recruitment: regularly recruiting emerging leaders (including church planting, missions, Christian leadership or future pastor candidates), to get training, including with VI.
      • Student approval: approving (or not) students to join VI-related activities at the Site. In some cases students may come from surrounding churches and ask to join the Site.
      • Praxis opportunity: assigning leaders to assist with hands-on training/mentoring (called “mentoring praxis”) of VI students in accordance with the Church’s goals and calendar. In many cases the Site Pastor will need to sit down with the student and map out how he or she can best to serve the Church during each quarter the student is enrolled in a “mentoring praxis” course. Each such course requires 45 hours of service.
      • Theological discussion: where possible, engaging in theological dialogue and spiritual direction with VI students as a Hub Mentor in the VI learning community. (Contact VI to sign up as a Hub Mentor.) Where this is not possible, students will be placed into online discussion groups.
      • Disciplinary action: assisting Site Coordinator and VI staff with disciplinary actions where necessary. The Site Pastor shall abide by and hold students and the Site Coordinator accountable to the requirements set forth in the VI Wiki and other VI policies and procedures.
    2. "Site Coordinator”: The Site Coordinator shall be the person assigned by the Site Pastor to assist in running the Site. The Site Coordinator’s responsibilities shall include:
      • Student support: providing tier 1 student support for all VI-related questions that can be answered by the Site. The VI Hub Mentor or other program coordinator will liaise with and support the Site Coordinator on any such questions.
      • Logistics: preparing classroom activities, DVD lectures when desired, meeting rooms for theological conversations, and other logistical and administrative support.
      • Policies and procedures: abiding by requirements set forth in the VI Wiki and other VI policies and procedures.
  2. Safe classroom environment. The Church agrees to hold all VI activities under the supervision of Site Church staff, and to provide a safe and conducive environment for VI students and ongoing oversight of VI-related classroom learning, hands-on ministry training, worship, prayer, and other VI student activities. Without limit, the Church agrees and warrants that it will conduct all VI-related activities in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and other governmental requirements, the Vineyard Statement of Faith, and biblical standards of morality.
  3. VI role. VI will develop and offer theological and practical education and training courses, work with national Vineyard AVCs, Hubs and churches in developing and rolling out their own locally appropriate education and training programs, and provide support to these groups as agreed. In carrying out these activities, VI and the Site are independent contractors, and as such shall not have any authority to legally bind or obligate each other in any way, direct each other’s activities or personnel, or subject each other to any liability.
  4. Miscellaneous. The Church and VI acknowledge and agree that they have read and understand this Agreement and will be bound by its terms. Authorized representatives of the Church and VI have signed below.
