Release Statement

I represent to Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) that the Lord Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, which means that I am a witness about Him to others at all times, through my words and conduct, including during my service as a volunteer with the BGEA. I also acknowledge that being permitted to perform volunteer service with BGEA is conditioned upon my agreement with BGEA’s Mission Statement and Statement of Faith and my ongoing demonstration of appropriate conduct that is consistent with those statements, scriptural teachings and principles, and with BGEA’s policies and procedures. I will not represent any other ministry or personal interest while volunteering. I represent and warrant that I have no criminal background involving violence, sexual misconduct, or fraud, and agree to notify BGEA if there is any change in such status or if I am charged in a criminal matter of any kind. I agree to undergo certain screening, including a criminal background check, when my role involves access to individuals and/or an individual’s personal data. Either BGEA or I may terminate my volunteer role at any time for any or no reason.

Further, I understand that serving as a volunteer with BGEA will not entitle me to compensation or benefits of any kind, including insurance, and I assume all risk associated with performing volunteer services. This means that I hold BGEA harmless from all claims, liability and other damages arising from my volunteer service. In consideration of the opportunity I may have to perform volunteer service, BGEA may make audio, visual, or audiovisual recordings of me and use the same, as it sees fit, in any form of media, forever, without financial compensation. I understand that works I create while serving as a volunteer belong to BGEA, including title, ownership and copyright of those works.

If I am exposed to what BGEA may consider to be confidential information, including without limitation, contact or mailing lists, information regarding the Graham family, or other information not known to the general public, I agree that such confidential information shall remain BGEA’s property at all times; that I will view, handle and hold all such confidential information in trust and confidence and safeguard it against unauthorized use, publication or disclosure; and I agree not to directly or indirectly, in any way, reveal, report, publish, disclose, transfer or otherwise use any of the confidential information except as specifically authorized by BGEA.
