THREE STRIKES RULE

 

DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS

 

The purpose of the Three Strikes Rule is to minimize talking, playing and interruptions during BLIC Ministry sessions or other on and off-site activities.  It should be understood that once PRAYER begins, and/or the activity starts, the Three Strikes Rule applies.

 

STRIKE 1:

 

Action:      If teen is being disruptive, disrespectful or is misbehaving in any way.

 

Consequence: Remove teen from the group by having them sit in an area separate from the other teens, but where the teen can still participate in all activities.

 

Once Prayer or the Activity has ended, a Ministry leader will talk to the teen and warn her about the second strike consequence.  The teen should be closely monitored for the duration of the session or activity.

 

STRIKE 2:

 

Action:      If teen continues to be disruptive, disrespectful or is misbehaving.

 

Consequence: Remove the teen from the group and away from the other youth.  There will be no participation in activities.

 

Once the session or activity has ended, Ministry leaders will discuss the teens behavior.  The youth will be advised of the Third Strike consequence and be made to sit alone if necessary.

 

FOUL BALL:

 

Action:      If teen continues to be disruptive, disrespectful or is misbehaving.

 

Consequences: (Second chance before Strike Three) We do not want to lose any of our youth.  Love and good communication with the teen and parent must be extended. Always give the teen a second chance before Strike Three.

 

STRIKE 3:

 

Action:      If teen refuses to stop misbehaving.

 

Consequences:  Remove the teen from the group.  Request the youth call her

 

parent(s). Inform the parent of the teen’s behavior and ask if they can arrange to have the youth picked up at the Church.  If not, the teen will be taken home and the parent will be informed that their behavior did not improve.  The parent must then meet with Pastor Jones AND attend the next BLIC session with their teen before the teen may return alone.
