job application and EFCA--what do I do?


#1

First, I had a hard time deciding where to post this question.

Second, a little background so you are wondering why I am considering this:
We live in a small town for a year and a half now. My younger daughter is 3 and there is a new Christian school being built to open this coming fall, beginning infants through kinder, adding a grade every year, just 3 miles from us. Would be great if she could go there because we have no friends here, and the next closest preschool is 30+miles away. (WHen she starts kinder, she won't be going there, just for preschool.) But, with the preschool cost, I would need some type of supplemental income (I have stayed home for the last 6 years). So I inquired about working there, part time, same as the preschool hours, as my college degree and work experience is early childhood education.

On the job application, as well as the student/family application, there is the Statement of Faith of the Evangelical Free Church of America.

On the job app. you can check the box where it says you agree fully, or check a different box saying you agree except for the following areas, which you state and explain.

The more I look at it, the more I see I need to write about.

How can I address the areas of disagreement with a brief explanation?

I have included the link to Statement of Faith, but here is a brief list:

--Bible--"ultimate authority"
--"Human beings are sinners by nature, alienated from God, under His wrath..."
--Jesus--"representative and substitute...death and resurrection only ground for salvation"
--Holy Spirit--"convicts the world of its guilt"
--justification by "faith alone"
--"Jesus mandated two ordinances--baptism and the Lord's Supper...not the means of
salvation...confirm and nourish the believer"
--premillenial return of Jesus
--unbeliever is condemned, believer goes to heaven

efca.org/about-efca/statement-faith

any advice would be great, I have been sitting on this for a week wondering what to do. :shrug:

Sounds like something no Catholic in good conscience could sign as it stands.

All I can say is be honest. No amount of money is worth denying your faith. If God wants you there, they will accept you as you are. If not, trust that He has something better in mind for you - maybe not financially more rewarding, but better nonetheless.


#3

I wouldn't sign that, I wouldn't send my child to a school where the believe or teach that and I wouldn't be surprised if they turned you down for saying you disagree with anything on the statement. If your background is early childhood education, you can easily teach your child everything they need to know for kindergarden and include elements of the Catholic faith in the process.

What is there to wonder about? You should never consider either working in or enrolling your child in such a heretical school.


#6

For kids under the age of eight, religious education is pretty generic, so long as nothing anti-Catholic is taught.

It is highly unlikely that you would be hired, since you disagree with their statements of faith, and they have the right to discriminate in those areas. I would suggest that you open your own preschool, since you are qualified. That way your kids, and especially the littlest, could get more socialization.


#7

Thanks for the responses.

I would like to quote some respnses and respond, but cannot find how to use quotes from previous responses? Can someone steer me to finding how to do that?

But, I definitely could not sign it as it stands, would have to explain my difference in faith on the application.

Yes, I do work with my child and and can prepare her to enter kindergarten, but it is the social I am looking for her, and as to opening a preschool myself, even at home, I have tried this, not even charging, but just trying to get together a couple other moms with their same age girls to come over and do some activities together that I plan and play and socialize. I have tried many, many times over this past year. It happened once with one person.

At first I was hesitant about what would be taught there, but I looked at the curriculum the director sent me that they will use, and nothing in it counters our faith, there are Bible stories, and the main theme is "God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend."

Yes they do have a right to discriminate, it is allowed by law.
When I asked on the phone what the requirements would be, she said employees are required to be Christian. Well, that would be me. But, they are a litte more specific on the app.

Well, if I turn this in, at least whoever reads it will get a little teaching on the Catholic faith, if nothing more.:)
