Why do background checks?

A ministry that serves children and youth has the obligation to exercise “due diligence” with regards to protecting its members, especially the children.  By performing background checks on our volunteers your ministry is…

  • Putting up a safeguard at the “doorway” of the organization that will, in most cases, scare off sexual predators.
  • Offering peace of mind to discerning parents when choosing a church, by knowing your ministry is being pro-active in trying to protect the children.
