NOTES:

Worth noting the requirements you have to sign off on to apply for this one: 

"As a community, we believe that certain scriptural teachings apply to us as they have to all people in all cultures. Our lives are to be characterized by love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. We are to use our gifts in doing such things as serving, teaching, encouraging, giving, leading and showing mercy. In contrast, we  are to avoid such sinful practices as drunkenness,  stealing, dishonesty, profanity, occult practices, sexual intercourse outside of marriage, homosexual behavior and sexually exploitative or abusive behavior. Although  wrong attitudes such as greed, jealousy, pride, lust, prejudice and fractiousness are harder to detect than wrong behaviors, both are prohibited as sinful and destructive of community life and of the body of Christ."
