Background Check Instructions
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania requires any employee or volunteer above the age of 16 who works with children to complete three background checks. The purpose of these checks is to screen for those with a history of perpetrating child abuse. These background checks are mandatory, and must be renewed every 5 years. We will keep this information private and secure in the church office.
1: PA Criminal Record Check
2: PA Child Abuse Clearance
3: FBI Background Check OR Volunteer Affidavit (last page of Volunteer Application)
