SRE New Teacher's Authorisation Application Form (non Baptist Church Attendees)

This form is an SRE Authorisation form for teachers seeking authorisation with the Baptist Association who do not attend a Baptist Church.

If you attend a non Baptist church and you are seeking authorisation through us, you must have a local Baptist Pastor willing to endorse you. Without this endorsement, we will be unable to authorise you. Please be aware that we will be confirming with the nominated Pastor that they know you and are willing to endorse you. Please take your time to complete the following form and answer all questions correctly and honestly. Please complete all the form then click submit . You will then receive an email with a summary of your form. Print off a copy, sign, scan and keep one on record at your church and a copy sent to our SRE email address. If anything on this form raises questions or concerns please contact Shelley Ashton SRE Team Leader for the Baptist Association on 98689239 before submitting the form. If you attend a non Baptist church and you are seeking reauthorisation through us, you must confirm the Baptist pastor that endorsed you previously is still willing to continue that endorsement. Please take your time to complete the following form and answer all questions correctly and honestly. Please complete all the form then click submit. You will then receive an email with a summary of your form. Print off a copy, sign, scan and keep one on record at your church and a copy sent to our SRE email address.
