|We are GUESTS at the facilities in
which we serve. Accordingly, our conduct must be above reproach and that
includes our wearing apparel. We are representing Jesus Christ.
As a volunteer there is some paperwork that
needs filling out but it is not difficult and we will coordinate that
effort with our volunteers.
Below are two links that we wish
for you to click on and
They constitute the conduct rules and regulations of the center and 'IYM'.
There will be no deviation from the published rules. If you have a concern
or question one of the board members MUST be contacted. We will do NOTHING
that is not in strict compliance with the rules and regulations of
the centers serviced under the 'IYM' banner. This is a non negotiable
tenant of the 'IYM' ministry
Two other issues of GREAT IMPORTANCE:
While we understand that from time to time we all find ourselves 'running
late' WE MUST BE MOST PUNCTUAL in keeping our commitments to arrive at the
centers at the time prescribed. Habitual lateness cannot be accepted by
the centers nor IYM. If you are going to be late or absent YOU MUST
contact us. See the 'Contact' Page.
The other issue is social web sites. We
recognize that these sites are convenient for those who wish to
communicate to vast numbers of folks. THEY HAVE NO PLACE IN DEALING WITH
DETAINED PERSONS. Simply stated, Center Management does not want any
information on social network sites' end of story.
This also means that volunteers may not
'tweet', post (or whatever) any specifics concerning their involvement with a
facility wherein 'IYM' is the Spiritual enrichment provider.

New Chaplain Intake & Processing Rules
We are modifying how we go about in-taking potential new
chaplains effective this date.
Previously, all paperwork including rules, regulations and
Spectrum forms were given a candidate at once. The candidate
brought back the completed forms and we assigned them to a
mentor chaplain until we felt them ready to solo. There was no
interim process wherein we interviewed the candidate to ensure
adherence to policies & procedures. The person in question was
allowed to shadow for a short time until the paperwork was
Under the new method, the candidate receives all the rules &
regulations first. They must come back and tell us they are in
agreement with the policies & procedures and one of the on-site
IYM directors will interview them. If found satisfactory, the
candidate will be given the IYM/Spectrum paper to fill out: a
badge will be ordered and a shirt put aside. Upon satisfactory
completion of the paperwork the candidate will be assigned a
mentor chaplain and the process will continue as in the past.
The candidate may be permitted to shadow during the process for
a brief period but will not be considered an IYM member until
the steps outlined have been satisfactorily completed.
All IYM Personnel,
Please be aware that if you plan on bringing visitors to a center you must have them
sign a PREA form prior to them
having access to the residents.
During Chaplain Visits or Worship
services this has not been an issue
since the writer is present and has
the visitor execute the document.
Where we have run into the issue is
during bible studies when the writer
is not present.
While we want to encourage visitation for potential IYM volunteers
the PREA signoff protocol must be
observed as this is a Federal
Mandated Procedure. The writer must
have the signed document Ďin handí
prior to a visitor having access to

Statement of Faith
Pastor Bill Whetstone-Spiritual
The statement of faith
which will govern the 'IYM' organization is here provided by Spiritual
Director Emeritus Pastor Bill Whetstone:
ARTICLES OF FAITH
We, therefore, deem belief in the following
.1. In one Godóthe
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
2. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Triune
Godhead; that He was eternally one with the Father; that He became
incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary, so
that two whole and perfect natures, that is to say the Godhead and
manhood, are thus united in one Person very God and very man, the
God-man. We believe that Jesus
Christ died for our sins, and that He truly arose from the dead and
took again His body, together with all things appertaining to the
perfection of manís nature, wherewith He ascended into heaven and is
there engaged in intercession for us3. We believe in the Holy
Spirit, the Third Person of the Triune Godhead, that He is ever
present and efficiently active in and with the Church of Christ,
convincing the world of sin, regenerating those who repent and
believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into all truth as it is
.2. That the Old
and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain
all truth necessary to faith and Christian living. inerrantly
revealing the will of God concerning us in all things necessary to
our salvation, so that whatever is not contained therein is not to
be enjoined as an article of faith.
.3. That man is born with a fallen
nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.
.4. That the
finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
.5. That the
atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that
whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified
and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
6. We believe that Jesus Christ, by
His sufferings, by the shedding of His own blood, and by His death
on the Cross, made a full atonement for all human sin, and that this
Atonement is the only ground of salvation, and that it is sufficient
for every individual of Adamís race. The Atonement is graciously
efficacious for the salvation of the irresponsible and for the
children in innocency but is efficacious for the salvation of those
who reach the age of responsibility only when they repent and
.7. That the Holy
Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire
sanctification of believers.
We believe that entire sanctification is that act of God, subsequent
to regeneration, by which believers are made free from original sin,
or depravity, and brought into a state of entire devotement to God,
and the holy obedience of love made perfect.
9. We believe in the Church, the
community that confesses Jesus Christ as Lord, the covenant people
of God made new in Christ, the Body of Christ called together by the
Holy Spirit through the Word.
10. That our Lord will return,
the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will come again; that we who
are alive at His coming shall not precede them that are asleep in
Christ Jesus; but that, if we are abiding in Him, we shall be caught
up with the risen saints to meet the Lord in the air, so that we
shall ever be with the Lord.

Suicide/ Bullying Proclamations
If a resident makes a chaplain aware of thoughts of suicide
or that they are being bullied the chaplain is to inform the
IYM manager on duty AFTER the resident has left the area.
The IYM manager is then to inform the center Facility
Manager or designated supervisor.
To better understand
the treatment stages:
The Seven Stages of Treatment
seven stages of treatment are designed to facilitate a
step-by-step process in which each stage builds upon personal
knowledge gained from the previous treatment stages.
Each treatment stage also explores how a residentsí substance
abuse played a part in shaping their thinking errors and
delinquent behavior. Therapists use several varied
therapeutic tools and techniques during each therapy stage to
help residents change their erroneous thinking patterns.
