• Code of Conduct Provision on Sexual Activity and Expression: It is the policy of CCCHG to maintain a standard of behavior among its members, students, staff, volunteers, and visitors that is above reproach. In keeping with the ministry’s statement of faith, certain conduct will not be tolerated. (Gen. 2:24; Gen. 19:5, 13; Gen. 26:8–9; Lev.18:1–30; Rom. 1:26–29; 1 Cor. 5:1; 6:9; 1 Thess. 4:1–8; Heb. 13:4). In keeping with this policy, the following will be grounds for termination of membership, termination of employment, and/or termination of enrollment.
1. Demonstration of romantic involvement between non-married members, students, staff, volunteers,
and visitors at CCCHG events. This includes, but is not limited to, kissing or any other contact that would contribute to undue familiarity.
2. Immoral conduct and/or advocating for or advancing immoral conduct. Immoral conduct is defined as bodily contact, actively undertaken or passively permitted, for the purpose of satisfying intimate desires and any bodily contact that a reasonable person would understand to demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in an immoral act.
3. Identifying statement(s) of immoral acts, defined as a member's, student's, staff, volunteer's, and/or visitor's statements, actions, language, or behavior, whether through dress or other appearance, an online profile, words, or other expression that a reasonable person would believe is intended to associate or identify the member, student, staff, volunteer, or visitor as sexually active or a claim that the person is homosexual, bisexual, transgender, or otherwise immoral or has the propensity to or intent to engage in immoral actions. (ie: “I’m sleeping with my boyfriend/girlfriend,” “I’m sexting,” or “I’m gay.” )
4. Homosexual or transgender conduct, either as acts or identifying statements, is not compatible with employment with, volunteering with, attending events of, or joining CCCHG and is a basis for dismissal and/or termination of membership.
• All members, students, staff, volunteers, and visitors must be treated with dignity and respect, free of threats or harassment.
• The determination of whether a member, student, staff, volunteer, and/or visitors’s actions constitute a violation of the code of conduct will be made by the Board of Directors.
