SCOPE AND PURPOSE
This web page is solely devoted to providing practical information and tangible materials related to the ongoing organization task of locating, recruiting and training new volunteer associates. Success in this area is essential to ensuring that the Kairos Prison Ministry will continue to be a growing, improving and vital portion of God's kingdom. Such organizational health is the responsibility of every volunteer in every Texas unit to serve this urgent and important goal. If we will each one commit to adding a faithful portion into this group effort then whatever value we create today will serve others tomorrow!

ROCKred checkmark EXCELLENCE - CHECKLIST and WORKSHEET
This Kairos of Texas tool can be extremely helpful for individual units to keep track of their progress and compliance with Kairos guidelines. The key here is for the users to personalize and adapt it to their own specific community assets and needs. After that - like any powerful tool - it requires diligent usage and regular maintenance to bring out its full potential. Since it is an Excel file, you will need to download it to your computer before using.

The ROCK Checklist provides guidance, best practices and links.

The ROCK Worksheet provides space to input details in the "What, Who, By When" columns.  


Note: These forms are also available to download in PDF format:  Checklist and Worksheet 
 

What? No, of course we're not trying to make this more difficult. Really, quite the opposite!
To prove that point - here are all the links from the ROCK Checklist  for your easy and individual link referencing.
Enjoy!
