Indemnity and General Release
This consent form gives permission to seek whatever medical attention is deemed necessary, and releases Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church (hereinafter “MDPC”) and its staff of any liability against personal losses of named youth. I the undersigned have legal custody of the youth named and have given my consent for him/her to attend events being organized by MDPC. I understand that my electronic signature below carries with it the following:
I am aware that activities may include participation in sporting/recreational events. (Note: if you desire to limit your youth’s participation in any event, please submit your wishes in writing to the MDPC Executive Pastor prior to that event.)
I give permission for the named youth to be transported to and/or from church-sponsored events and church-approved meetings by: A) church provided transportation (cars, vans, buses, planes) and/or B) adult driven transportation (MDPC Youth Staff, adult volunteers).
I am aware that the MDPC Youth Staff and Volunteers have completed Child Protection Training, a criminal background check and personal reference check prior to their involvement with youths. MDPC invites into ministry only those adults who a) have no previous convictions for sexual or physical abuse of children; b) for whom they receive positive responses from their references; and c) who meet MDPC's qualifications and ministry standards of the position for which they are applying.
I am aware that the MDPC Youth Staff and Volunteers contact youths outside of church activities for ministry purposes through text message and social media. If I am uncomfortable with this contact, I will contact Laura Miller in the Youth Office to discuss this further.
In the event that the named youth is injured, or should require medical or dental attention while participating in a church-sponsored event, I hereby authorize the church representatives or sponsors of the event to secure necessary medical treatment for the named youth and will be ultimately responsible for the cost of any medical care should the cost of that medical care not be reimbursed by the health insurance provider. I further understand that it is solely my responsibility to notify the MDPC Youth Ministry of any changes regarding the named youth's health, medical insurance, or guardianship information. I do hereby specifically release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue MDPC, its staff, volunteers, agents, and governing bodies, for any action or causes of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, property damage, or wrongful death, which may exist or which may hereafter arise during and following the participation of the named youth in a church-sponsored event occurring between the dates listed on this form. I further understand and agree that in the event that the named youth is involved in activities that violate or compromise the rules, policies, or purposes of MDPC, I will accept full responsibility for release of the named youth to my custody and care. I further understand that I will cover all financial costs if the named youth is sent home for disciplinary reasons.
I give permission for any videos or photographs taken of the named youth to be used by MDPC. No names will be used.
I have completed the contact information, insurance information and the medical history information. My youth and I have read the above rules of conduct and understand the expectations and consequences.
"I/We verify that I have read and understand the indemnity and General Release above and below and that all information I have provided is true and correct.
