Church and Religious Organizations
Churches rely on the support and assistance of a wide variety of people besides their own church leaders and administrative staff, such as volunteers, community organizers, and others, who have access to youths, elderly, and other individuals that take part in activities organized or supported by their church or religious organization.
Many religious organizations conduct what is commonly referred to as Church Background Checks or Church Volunteer Screening on volunteers and employees, but not many actually operate a due diligent church volunteer screening program. Many of these organizations currently perform “Database Only” Church Background Checks, a dangerous risk that skips county courthouse searches and other vital background screening steps.
We understand that most churches which utilize volunteers are working with a limited budget. This challenge can often influence decision makers to be tempted by low priced background checks and unknowingly place our children and their organizations at risk. While many companies offer low-cost background checks that provide “instant results” that look like the right solution, you may be placing your organization at risk by failing to properly screen your church volunteers.
