Background Checks

Background Checks

Create a safe environment for the children and youth who attend your church services and events with background checks that integrate with your ChMS.

What are Background Checks?

Safety must be a priority at your church. Background Checks through Protect My Ministry make it possible to screen volunteers, staff members, and anyone else who may come in contact with children at your church so you can feel confident and secure.

Why Do You Need Them?

Unfortunately, the reality is that safety measures must be taken at churches to prevent sexual predators and violent offenders from placing children and students in danger. Between four and 10 percent of background checks reveal a criminal record. Background checks through Protect My Ministry are the form of protection you need to do your due diligence in protecting children.

Tips for keeping children safe

1. Be thorough

These background checks run people through the national criminal database, SSN identity check, as well as do a true 50 state search on sexual offenders, so you can have confidence.

2. Don’t decide alone

The security of your church is a huge deal. Gain access to online consultations where professionals can help you choose the right plan for your church.

3. Accurately store reports

Because the Background Checks integrate with your ChMS, you can easily store and access the reports whenever you need them.

4. Ask volunteers to chip in

Background checks are worth the cost, but if your budget is tight you can ask volunteers to pay and securely collect credit card information online. 

5. Be vigilant

Get re-screen reminders to stay up-to-date with screenings. This isn’t a task you want to forget. 

6. Require training

Make child safety and abuse prevention a priority by requiring training and certification for staff and volunteers.
