1ST YEAR APPLICATION
Dear Applicant,

Thank you for expressing interest in the ministry of Generation Reformation. It is
exciting to see how the Lord will work within each student as they dedicate time to know
God and to make Him known. GR is not just a program,but a lifestyle of discipleship for
serious Christians. It is for those who have a desire to seek after more of Christ in their
lives, as well as, a longing to be used effectively in the kingdom of God. Paul knew that
Timothy, having loved God with all his heart, still needed mentoring and discipleship and
chose it as a means of touching twelve to change the world. I am excited that you, too,
are willing to pray and seek God as to whether or not GR is God's will for your life.

Preparations for the new GR year are under way. We are now ready to accept
applications for students. Please take time to read all of the enclosed information
carefully. Our next semester begins in September of 2007. When you have filled our
your application, please mail it to us so that we can begin to process your information.
We would like to inform you of your acceptance as soon as possible, so your
promptness will be greatly appreciated. We have also included a checklist to help you
with the application process.

When your application is complete, an GR staff member will be calling to schedule a
couple of phone interviews. These interviews have no right or wrong answers. They are
simply a means of getting to know you better. Furthermore, all new students must be
fingerprinted. Three background checks must be completed: two by the Department of
Public Safety as well as by Protective and Regulatory Services. If you do not live in
Montgomery, you may go to your local police department. Also, include the $25
processing fee if you have not already done so. You will need to give your reference
forms to the respective persons, as we cannot complete the application process until we
receive these forms and all background checks are complete.

Part of you acceptance into GR relies on the application and background check. If you
have any questions about the application process or anything else, please feel free to
call.

There is no way to put on paper what God can do in your life. My prayer is that as you
look over this packet, you would listen for His voice and answer His call - no matter
where it may take you or what He ask of you.

In His Service,


GR DIRECTOR

                      ____________________________________________________________
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

By signing this contract, I am indicating that I would like to participate in the Generation Reformation Discipleship Program, a ministry
of LOCAL CHURCH, and I plan to obtain funds necessary to do so. I realize that all checks should be made payable to GR and sent to
ADRESS, and all money will be administered as a personal “support account” set up in my name on the books of the GR. I unde rstand
that this account will be established only if I am accepted as a student of the GR and upon the submission of my initial $200 deposit.

If I am able to participate in the GR, the program cost established by GR and the amount of any expenses incurred by GR to assist
me in obtaining financial support for this program will be deducted from my account. I will submit:

            $25 Application Fee that is non-refundable is due at time of application.
            $200 minimum is due on or before the first day of the program and is non-refundable after thirty days.
            The remainder of all tuition may be paid out in increments with a minimum of $100 for seven months.
             (Please note that a $25 fee will be added to all payments that are 10 days past due and for all returned checks)

In the event that program funds raised exceed program costs, I understand that funds may be applied as a non-refundable deposit
toward the support of another student or towards other program costs. No interest will accrue for funds left in the account . At the end
of one year, any remaining amount in my account will become property of the GR and all records of my account may be discarded.

In the event that I do not participate in the program, any charges incurred for me or on my behalf will be deducted from my a ccount, and
I will be responsible for any deficit. I will pay any deficit within fifteen days following notice to me of the amount of such deficit.


In the event that you are released from the program or decide to leave GR (within the first 30 days), seventy five percent o f your initial
$200 will be refunded. After thirty days your initial $200 is non-refundable and your tuition cost will be prorated at $100 a month. Ex: A
student is released from the program the last week of January. Their deposit is no longer refundable and they are responsibl e for
paying $100 for the months of October, November, December, and January.

The parties to the CONTRACT are Christians and believe that the Bible commands them to make every effort to live at peace and to
resolve disputes with each other in private or within the Christian church (see Matthew 1:15-20; I Corinthians 6:1-8). Therefore the
parties agree that any claim dispute arising from or related to the CONTRACT shall be settled by biblically based mediation a nd, if
necessary, legally binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation of the Institute for Christian
Conciliation. All such mediation and arbitration shall take place in CITY, STATE. Judgment upon an arbitration award may be entered
in any court otherwise having jurisdiction. The parties understand that these methods shall be the sole remedy for any controversy or
claim arising out of this CONTRACT and expressly waive their right to file a lawsuit in any civil court against one another f or such
disputes, except to enforce an arbitration decision.
