Worship & Music: Sponsor Responsibilities

Adult sponsors play a key role in the success of each of our conferences.
+   Each group must send a minimum of one adult for every five youth. 
Churches must send sponsors of the same gender as those youth who
will be participating.
+ In order to maintain this ratio, adult sponsors may be asked to supervise
youth from another congregation up to a maximum of five youth.
Confirmation of registration is dependent on the availability of
sufficient adult sponsors for each gender and/or the gender
+ Churches with small congregations that find it difficult to meet the
sponsor/participant ratio should contact the Mo-Ranch Program Office
for assistance in securing appropriate supervision for their youth.
+ Mo-Ranch has a zero tolerance policy regarding child abuse
(including,but not limited to physical, emotional or sexual abuse).
Mo-Ranch sponsors must also abide by the Rule of Three (2 youth
and 1 adult) or (2 unrelated adults and 1 youth) to ensure safety for
all guests. No adult shall be left alone with a minor; therefore, a
minimum of two youth will be assigned to hotel housing when a
sponsor is to share the same room. A reasonable ratio of adult
workers will be maintained in each situation involving the
supervision of minors. Mo-Ranch staff and volunteer directors will
supervise on an ongoing basis and may make unannounced visits
into classes and other program sites during the conference.

make a difference in the atmosphere of the conference. Your attitude
has a direct effect on your youth and on your own enjoyment. You are
an important role model!
+ Sponsors are expected to see that youth observe afternoon rest
times and lights out each night, eat regularly, drink plenty of
water, and remember to use sunscreen!

+ Sponsors are expected to stay on Mo-Ranch property during the entire
time of the conference.
+ Sponsors will receive an information packet containing all necessary
forms. Visit the Youth Registration Forms tab to download the forms.
+ Each sponsor is required to have a national background check
on file before arriving at Mo-Ranch. Every background check must have
been run within 24 months of the conference and include social security
number verification, a criminal super search (includes Nationwide Sex
Offender Registry search) and a terrorist search. If needed, Mo-Ranch is
able to complete the background check for each sponsor. The sponsor
will need to complete an authorization form and add $8 (non-refundable)
to their registration fee. Background checks are due as early as possible.
Authorization forms are accepted up to 1 week prior to the start of
the conference. In addition, each sponsor must read and sign the
Mo-Ranch Child Protection Policy form.
