    Moderators Wanted

    Talk Jesus needs some moderators and I am ready to add enough to create a full dozen: 12 apostles as in Scripture.
    :thumbs_up

    To Qualify: reply to this thread with the following information
    - brief but clear detail of what you believe in (be descriptive and informative)
    - your physical location (state / country)
    - your computer technical skills (be descriptive)
    - how often do you visit Talk Jesus?
    - your views, intentions and goal on Talk Jesus as an already registered member
    - explain why you should be a moderator and why you qualify

    Note: I ask God to guide me with His Holy Spirit in all my decisions. Do not feel offended if you are not chosen. Please do not ask me to make you a mod either. The sole decision comes from me and I have my heart and ears open to GOD's guidance.

    Most likely I will select those who have been a registered and active member for at least 2-3 months and have at least 100 posts minimum. Do NOT start posting all over the board to earn the minimum post qualification. This will actually deter you from qualifying.

    Remember...
    Talk Jesus is a precious "rock", GOD's online church, ministry and awesome community for all to fellowship. You should and must ask GOD for guidance yourself as well to see if He finds you right for a moderator position. Please do not reply / pm me telling me that GOD has chosen you :) I love GOD and so do you, but anyone can tell me GOD has said this and that to him or her. I do not speak against that (forbid I do) but it really comes down to GOD speaking to me and telling me who is right to choose. Reason why I ask you to ask GOD as well is because, well you now that GOD says if 2 or more gather together in His name, the prayer is stronger.

    Are you ready? This is a big responsiblity not a joke or a simple task. It is not life threatening either but nonetheless every action you make as a moderator can easily be for or against GOD with or without your conscience telling you so. Always say at least a quick, simple, humble and sincere prayer before entering Talk Jesus. Ask GOD in Jesus' name for wisdom, guidance and armour. You need patience in this position, wisdom, true devotion to GOD and to His online church here at Talk Jesus. If you feel even slightly not "100%" about this it is best to not reply and apply.

    Moderator Statement of Commitment

    A Moderator position is one of accountability and commitment. Being a Moderator for sake of status is not the Lords will, nor is it helpful to the plans at Talk Jesus. Moderators must take this responsibility as a servant, committed to the cause of Christ while in the same way being committed to the order set in place by the leader of Talk Jesus. Any who wish to become a Moderator must ask themselves the following questions.

    1. Do I believe in God and am I ready to serve him in his house of meeting.

    2. Am I willing to continue in prayer for Gods will to be followed out in all areas of Talk Jesus, and maintain support for all Gods appointed leaders in prayer and deeds?

    3. Am I ready to committee my time to Moderating Talk Jesus as a service unto God.

    4. Am I willing to accept all the guidelines set before me by the chosen leader at Talk Jesus knowing that his is not a self appointed position, but one established by God himself?

    Rules and Standard for Moderating

    Moderating this site is so members here will be allowed to openly share Jesus Christ without the threat of evil conduct interfering with the ability to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a free environment. The goal of appointing 12 Moderators to Talk Jesus is both biblical in its responsibility, but also needed in the daily task of this web site.

    Jesus Christ appointed 12 Apostles to walk with and learn the truth of the gospel so the 12 could further the truth after he was finished his mission here on earth. But, when Jesus sent the Apostles out to minister, he sent them out two at a time , to pray and watch over each other in their service . Now the 12 take on a different nature in it's application. When Jesus was here, the Apostles had all they needed. But Jesus also said that a day will come when they will need each other because he would go ahead and prepare a place for them in his Fathers house.

    The reason for 12 now is so we as part of the 12 can have Godly counsel, and also stand under accountability to each other before the Father in Heaven. This accountability includes equal parts in the task of Moderating Talk Jesus. As a Moderator , we all must put in the time needed to allow us all to have our times of rest and prayer /family / vacations /etc ... All Moderators must ask themselves , are they ready to committee to putting time into the Moderating task , or Not ? Here are some outlines that are not very hard when you think about the task and responsibility you are seeking.

    1. As a Moderator, you must been willing to add a Moderating schedule to you weekly planning.

    2. Unless you have given notice to the Moderator team through the Mod room, you are required to sign online for at least 4 hours a week, at a minimum. Remember, the others are counting on you being here so they can rest, or whatever they must do in their personal lives.

    3. Disappearance for more than 7 days without notice will automatically dismiss you from the Moderating Team. You will not be banned, but replaced for a lack of accountability to your team.

    4. Failure to attend all Moderator meetings must be posted before the meeting at least 8 hr's prior unless of emergency reasons. Moderator meetings are our time of communion together and are very important for our edification, and fellowship.

    5. Moderation of Talk Jesus is a ministry! It should be treated as such! This is a 24/7 Christian fellowship. It also needs to be tended to 24/7 by at least 1 Moderator at all times.

    6. If these standards are something you cannot fulfill, tells us and we will move on. A Moderator without commitment is no help in moving Talk Jesus ahead as God intended. Remember, we all have personal lives and you will not be judged for stepping away if needed.

    7. If it is your scheduled time to be online, and another Moderator logs in. It is not so you can leave and let the responsibility be on the other Moderator. Some have more time that others and will use it as they wish.
    These are just some guidelines to follow so that all the Moderators will be fresh in their Spirits, and able to handle personal responsibilities. Everything comes and goes in seasons, Moderating is no different. The commitment to be a Moderator is a team commitment before God. We must become a unified team, accountable to each, other and , equally responsible for serving God and Talk Jesus .

    Please take these things serious, because without them, our leader will get burned out and find no joy in all Gods plans here. Teamwork is the acceptable way to Moderate, and also be successful in moving Talk Jesus in the direction God intended it to go.

    Thank you in advance for all of you at Talk Jesus :)

    I believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the 3rd day to show that he has dominion over death

    I believe that there is 1 God in 3 persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

    I believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I believe in the 12 spiritual gifts listed in 1 Cor.

    I believe you cannot get into heaven by good works, but must pray the sinners prayer, and make Jesus your Lord and Savior

    I am in Minnesota, USA

    I have managed many forums before and know many things with forum systems, such as banning, creating forums, changing forums, language control etc. . . I also know a bit about chat systems. If you want more, you can PM me and ask me questions.

    my views of Talk Jesus are all positive, as long as a "Christian site" moves forward the kingdom of God, I am all for it.
    My intentions on TJ are to simply keep it moving forward the Kingdom of God
    My goal on TJ is to win the lost and strengthen the won.

    I believe I should be a mod because I have been a mod on many other forums, because my only purpose is to move God's kingdom forward, and because I believe this would be a good start to my ministerial services to the Lord in some ways.
    "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matt. 28:19-20

    Hi Chad!

    Hello, how are you? I just read that you need moderaters...Well I am dedicated to spreading the truth. I dont know if you have seen my article called got Jesus? I have since added to that article with more scripture but it is basically the same. I tape these up all over in bus stops etc.. I want to get people to realize the reality of sin and the penalty for it. Then that there is one hope...Jesus Christ! I have dedicated my life to Him. I dont have 100 posts up... Thats alot! I post poems and articles, my most recent being on rapture. I want to use my poems to bring people to Jesus. I am also posted at My name is Julie under the navigation. I wish to become as involved as possible. Wherever God is I want to be too! I live in Ontario and I frequent this site every day. I'm actually not sure what a moderater does! I learn fast and I am very dedicated. I see this sites uniqueness and its heart which beats for God. I actually logged into this site when I saw it said 100% truth. I guide people to this site because I know what a supportive community of true believers it has. I would be honoured and fully dedicated to your moderater group. God bless you Chad and you have done a glorious job with this site. From Julie:angel:

    My undestanding by what you said here Chad is that anyone who hasn't been here for at least 2-3 months and have a minimum of 100 posts do not qualify. Is this correct? Or do you mind anyone "applying" ?

    Chad, I don't know if I am meant to be a moderator or not, but here's my info anyhow. I know that whatever decision you make will be from the Lord, so I'm not going to be upset if I don't get chosen.

    - I believe that Jesus is the son of God and that He died on the cross so that even though I am a sinner, since I believe in Him, I can go to heaven. "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can enter the kingdom except through Me." I believe that He rose from the dead on the third day as He stated He would. I believe in the Holy Spirit and the gifts that are listed in the bible, including tongues. I also believe that the bible is a key tool for drawing closer to the Lord and that it can help in any situation as long as you know the verses, or know someone who does.
    - I am located in Oregon, USA
    - I have taken classes in operating systems for windows XP and Linux. I have experience building and fixing computers. I have worked as a computer lab aide recently at college and have experience helping people with all ranges of experience. I know most programs, and know all the Windows OS's as well as Linux Red Hat, and Brother Works. I have worked as a room operator and as an administrator on other networks, and have also been a room operator in a Window's technical answer room where newbies came to ask questions. I know about internet connections, bandwidth, and have some experience in networking. There's more, but you said to be brief, so I'll stop now.
    - I am at TalkJesus everyday unless an unavoidable problem arises in my personal life. This is my online church and I love the people here, and I love coming here. I don't know what my post amount is, I will find out when I post this, but I don't think it's 100 yet. I post when I feel led to, but I always read the posts, and I always pray for my brothers and sisters who need it and a lot of them who don't seem to.
    - I am here to talk about God and the love that He has for us. I help anyone that asks for help and I pray for everyone, whether they ask me to or not. I try to be a good witness, so I don't let myself get angry, and I listen to God, so I know what to say and when.
    - Because of my administrator and room operator experience, I know what a trial being a moderator can be, and I know how much work it takes to be a leader for others. It is not something that I would ever take lightly and I have given this a lot of thought and prayer to even reply to your thread. I want to be a help to you at this site Chad. Whether that's being a moderator or just being there for my brothers and sisters, praying for them, finding scriptures to help them, or however else God chooses to use me, I know is ultimately up to God and so I leave it in His hands.

    Moderators

    In my head I truly wish to be a moderator in this room but before I can answer your questions I must search my Heart. I pray God will allow you the wisdom to give some people the time to pray and even fast before answering this post.
    Isaiah 30:21 says, Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." Chad I want to search out that voice and be sure it is the way to walk. I know i do not have the "100" posts but to me that if that is a qualifying factor I remember that God did not call the qualified, He qualified those called. With that said I hope to post the answers to you thread shortly. Be Blessed Brother.

    Thank you all for your replies. I just want to confirm the purpose of "100 posts" is to see that the member is actually active on the board. It does not have to be necessarily that much, but genuine and valuable posts, not just a bunch of "i agree" and such simple one word posts.
