Statement of Faith
Greeter, Check in, Raffle
It's important to us that we honor your time and the women we serve. In order to do that, we ask that each volunteer signs a 1-year commitment. By signing, you make a promise to the women we serve that you will show up and show up well! It also allows you to re-think your schedule at the end of your year commitment. Life is constantly changing and we get it! Being a part of the CW Family should life giving to you and our women so prayerfully consider before you commit so that your ‘yes’ will be ‘yes.’
I hope that’s okay and if it is, keep reading! There are so many opportunities for you to become the woman you are created to be!
We are not perfect and do not expect you to be! So, don’t worry, we are not going to ask you to to be anyone but yourself. We will, however, remind you that if you are serving as a leader for Created Woman that no matter where you go you bring the CW brand and beliefs with you. Leadership is a privilege that also comes with extra responsibility. Please take it seriously. If you find yourself in a season where you feel your leadership role does not align with your personal beliefs, we ask that you take a leave of absence. We’ll walk the journey with you and answer any questions we have. After all, we’re family!
Additionally, we all need a break from time to time because of reason relating to family, work and other circumstances that are out of our control. It’s no big deal, you come first not CW. However, we do ask you to consider these factors before signing any commitment. Just remember, the door is always open to come back to leadership. Once family, you're always family!
The Board of Directors does reserve the right to appoint volunteers and ask someone to take a leave of absence.
We believe your story matters! So if you are a word girl, love sharing your story and can communicate it well, then you have a platform with CW!

CW is a platform for women to share our stories that will encourage others daily and draw them closer to God. Our editors are the key to making sure we are representing God's word with excellence!
