Confirmation 2018-2019

If you are in 6th grade and up, confirmation is for you! 

Here you will learn what makes a Methodist a Methodist and what it means to be a Christian in this church. We meet at 4pm in the Youth Area on Sundays in the Fall.  In the spring, confirmands will have the opportunity to put their faith into action and affirm their faith in front of the congregation and become members of the church. Confirmation is part of the Methodist faith journey for youth to decide for themselves and learn about taking ownership of their faith! The first class is September 30th. 

To register follow the link HERE or email our Youth Director Grace.

If you have any questions, email Grace Hoel at grace.hoel@fumctemple.org

Position Available:

Candidates applying must have the requirements listed below. 

Resumes should be directed to Dr. Tom Robbins at tom.robbins@fumctemple.org or dropped off at the church office.

General Information:  Chapter 43 of the Human Resources Code and Title 40 of the Texas Administrative Code require that a person not serve as an administrator of a child-placing agency without a Child-Placing Agency Administrator License and not serve as an administrator of a general residential operation (GRO) or residential treatment center (RTC) without a Child-Care Administrator License.

To be eligible for a Child-Care Administrator License OR Child-Placing Agency Administrator License, you must:

  1. Submit three professional references from individuals who can attest to your work experience and competence as a child-care administrator, or child-placing agency administrator if you are applying for a child-placing agency administrator license. Forms are included in the application packet for use by your references.  Only original, handwritten references will be accepted.
  2. Submit evidence of at least one year of management/supervisory experience in a residential child care setting, or a licensed child-placing agency if you are applying for a child-placing agency administrator license. To fulfill the requirement for one year of experience in management and supervision of personnel and programs, you must substantiate through an employer reference that you have: 
    1. Completed the experience within the last 10 years,
    2. Completed the experience at a residential child-care setting, or a licensed child-placing agency if you are applying for a child-placing agency administrator license,
    3. Shared responsibility for implementing the operation’s program(s), and
    4. Supervised at least one member of the child care staff, or child-placing staff if you are applying for a child-placing agency administrator license.

Verification of this managerial experience must be provided by a present or former supervisor on one of the reference forms. 

Under no circumstances does child-placing agency experience count toward meeting this requirement if you are applying for a Child-Care Administrator License, nor does institutional experience count toward meeting this requirement if you are applying for a Child-Placing Agency Administrator License.  Experience as a foster parent or caregiver in a foster home counts toward neither license.

  1. Submit evidence of one of the following education and experience qualifications: 
              A. Master's or Doctoral Degree
              B. Bachelor's Degree and at least two years of full-time child care or related work experience.
    You must submit an original, official transcript or original letter of verification from the appropriate educational institution to verify your education.  All applicable work experience must be documented on the application form.
  2. Pass criminal background and abuse/neglect central registry checks conducted by the Department and submit the required criminal history affidavit.
  3. Pass an examination.

  • Current minimum standards

  • Professional ethics in administration
  • Personnel management
  • Child development
  • Child psychology (basics regarding abused and neglected children in residential care)
  • Program development
  • Client rights
  • Professional legal liabilities
  • Cultural competencies

The only study guide available for the exam is the current minimum standards, which are accessible via our web site or by calling any Licensing office to request a copy.

IF YOU INTEND TO APPLY FOR BOTH LICENSES:  You will be required to pay the appropriate fees for each license, you must meet the minimum qualifications for each license, and you must pass each of the separate exams.
