What documents should I have prepared before I begin the online application?

  1. Previous employment information (dates, salary information, name of supervisor, contact information)
  2. References (name, contact information)
  3. Faith Statement: Briefly relate your personal relationship with Jesus Christ
  4. Church of regular attendance (name, contact information)
