Background Screening[Top of Page]
In order to protect our children and youth, the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, the Washington Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and insurance policy requires all churches/schools/clubs to screen backgrounds on every volunteer and worker who works directly with children and youth under the age of 18. Our greatest desire is to assist each church/school/club in doing what is prudent, legal and necessary in order to protect them. Proper screening costs very little but increases safety a great deal.

We have a unified background screening packet: Background Screening Form (PDF)
Please fill out the packet completely and follow the instructions for submitting the form(s).

The all-new Reducing The Risk features an interactive, engaging DVD training program with 10 segments. Ministry leaders, volunteers and board members alike will learn first-hand from leading experts on how to screen and select workers, implement solid supervision policies and respond to allegations.
