Planning an International Move

Back in 2000, my wife Sandy and I moved from Michigan to Canada to pastor Neerlandia CRC. Now we have accepted a call back in west Michigan, and I can see the headaches and hassles on the horizon. Any advice or resources on the following issues would be most welcome!

Where can I find a sample policy regarding ministry standards and expectations for volunteers?

I am looking for a good sample policy for church volunteers that will set lifestyle and behavioral standards for our church ministries. Some things that I would want to include would be: membership in the church and active involvement in worship, moral standards, commitment to healthy communication, agreement to background checks, etc. Does anyone have a good sample policy listing the standards and expectations for ministry volunteers? Many thanks in advance.
