I certify that my answers are true and complete to the best of my knowledge.

I recognize that Kurios is designed for people who earnestly desire to seek Jesus as Lord over all areas of life, and I accept that living in a Christian community brings both privileges and obligations. Therefore, as a Kurios participant, I am committed to the moral and spiritual values reflected in the Bible and through Christ. Through my relationship with Jesus, and through the workings of the Holy Spirit, I will seek to exhibit the Fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal 5:22-23).

I agree that Kurios and the CBWC may use my picture or likeness in connection with any promotion, publicity, marketing or advertisement for Kurios.

I understand that prior to being admitted into Kurios I will provide additional documents (such as copies of passport, drivers license, signed liability waivers, etc) as requested.
