Student Ministry Consent & Release Form

Being able to reach out to everyone in our ministry areas is an important aspect of what we do.  Not just to share information but also to check in with each one of you when something like a hurricane devastates our community.  For that reason, we strongly encourage you to use the form linked below to update your student's information.  This form includes contact information, plus medical, media consent, and liability information for your child.  All are important pieces to make sure that you and your family stay connected and safe while at Gloria Dei.
