Volunteers & Church Officers

Young Volunteers

All volunteers must complete steps 1 & 2 in order to serve in church ministry. See each step below.

For questions please contact your local church child protection coordinator or Conference office.

Why a Background Check?

“Church should be a safe place to bring our children. Everyone involved in work with children who are minors must meet all Church and legal standards and requirements” (Church Manual, Edition 18, pp. 168-169).

Who Has to do It?

As part of this effort, those over 18 who are voted to serve within our churches or organizations, and those who are employed by the church and working with children and youth, are asked to complete a criminal background check (FB 20) and child protection training through Sterling Volunteers. This should be completed every three years.

For help with registration, passwords, usernames, background checks and website questions review Online Help/FAQs, submit a Helpdesk Email Form, or call 1-855-326-1860.
