ALL CHURCHES ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO CONDUCT
BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ALL ADULTS WHO WORK WITH TEENS.
If your church does not have a background check system, you may register for an account with Shepherds Watch (through Group Ministry) at no charge. The cost for each background check, once your account is set-up, will be $12. This is an effective, convenient, online service. To sign-up, click here. (Once there, scroll down towards the bottom and select “Order Now’ under the “Basic” memership, and enter code NAZSWB when ordering.)
It is REQUIRED that ALL adult volunteers at certain teen events have a background check completed before they are allowed to participate. These events include Regional Festival of Life, overnight Bible Quiz events (including the Regional Quiz), Teen Camp, YES & QUEST events, Nazarene Youth Conference, and any adults who stay in host homes used for IMPACT team members.
If an adult needs to have a background check completed in order to sponsor at an event, and their local church does not have an avenue for them to do so, they may contact Josh Kleinfeld (Pastorjosh@stillnaz.com) to have one done. (The cost is $12.)
