MissionNext does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of communications posted by others. It does not necessarily endorse opinions expressed by others. You acknowledge that any reliance on material posted by others will be at your own risk. MissionNext acts as a passive conduit for the online distribution and publication of user-submitted information and has no obligation to screen communications or information in advance and is not responsible for screening or monitoring material posted by users. If notified by a user of communications which allegedly do not conform to these Terms and Conditions, MissionNext may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith and its sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of the communication. MissionNext has no liability or responsibility to users for performance or nonperformance of such activities. MissionNext reserves the right to expel users and prevent their further access to the Web Site for violating the Terms and Conditions or the law. MissionNext reserves the right to remove communications which are abusive, illegal, or disruptive. MissionNext may take any action with respect to user-submitted information that it deems necessary or appropriate, in its sole discretion, if it believes it may create liability for MissionNext or may cause MissionNext to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.
Registration and Password
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your information and password. You shall be responsible for all uses of your registration, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify MissionNext of any unauthorized use of your registration or password.
Obligations of you, “The User”
You are under no obligation to MissionNext to pay for this service or donate money. Further, you are under no obligation to join or donate to a partner organization. Should you decide to take advantage of the web-based services of MissionNext, offered at no cost to you, you are under an implied obligation to supply information that is to the best of your knowledge accurate. This will assure that the material and time resources of MissionNext and partner organizations are well spent. Ultimately your real obligation is solely to the Lord as determined between you and Him.
Certain personal information is provided by you, the “user”. It is intended to be used solely by the ministry as a preliminary tool to establish a potential fit between services offered by you and services needed by that ministry organization. Personal information offered by you, the user, does not constitute an application for employment. Please note that it is a strict violation of the terms of engagement by our partner organizations to use your name or any information about you from the MissionNext website for the purposes of fundraising.
Obligations of Partner Organizations:
Partner organizations are obligated to handle personal information in a confidential manner as per the human resource policies of their organizations in compliance with all personnel laws. A partner organization is NOT obligated to offer you a position of service with them. Any arrangements of service and compensation, if any, is a matter strictly between you and a partner organization as dictated by their policies or individually negotiated. The obligations of partner organizations are to the laws of the land and also to the Lord.
It is a strict violation of the terms of ministry partnership to use any contacts from MissionNext website for the purposes of fundraising.
Obligations of MissionNext:
MissionNext stands to serve users and ministry organizations alike. As with any customer-provider relationship the level of integrity and service influence the outcome. The goal is to provide a safe, private and comfortable place to explore ministry options for your adult years. While we try to do our best, we can make no guarantees that successful connection will be made between a user and a faith-based ministry or service organization. Further, at the sole discretion of MissionNext, we reserve the right to terminate the service to users and partner agencies for misuse of this openhanded service, as determined solely by MissionNext.
If a user or ministry wishes to terminate use of the services offered by MissionNext, we commit to terminate that service by deleting their personal or organization information from our electronic databases. However, as a practical matter, once introductions are made, MissionNext can not guarantee users and ministries will not continue to correspond with each other apart from the offices of MissionNext. Happily, in our experience, most of those that have requested termination of services, do so because they have moved on to serve with a missions agency.
MissionNext Limitation of Liability

MissionNext does not screen or censor the listings offered. MissionNext is not involved in the actual transaction between employers and candidates.
