How does your background screening stack up?

Four Reasons to Trust Us

with your Background Checks:

Access to Legal Advice if You’re in Crisis

At some point, you may come across a report that presents questions with legal significance. Our attorneys and child protection experts help ministries answer questions like this one: “This report shows a drug-related charge 4 years ago. Should this person serve with children?” 

When your ministry has questions, turn to trusted Christ-based legal experts.

Seamless Management That Saves You Time

The MinistrySafe Control Panel was specifically designed to meet the needs of churches and ministries – it’s simple to learn and easy to maintain – whether you’re managing 50 or 5,000 background checks. Administrators can easily order, track, view, archive and refresh Background Checks through the Control Panel. 

Let our system do the heavy lifting or ask about our integration into church management software.

Comprehensive Training So You're In-the-Know

Screening staff must be trained to recognize high-risk indicators for sexual abusers. Additionally, training screening personnel to recognize RED FLAG OFFENSES on a background check report is critical, because abusers are often allowed to plea down to a lesser offense, resulting in a conviction that may appear unrelated to child sexual abuse to the untrained eye. We offer comprehensive online training meant to equip screening personnel.

Custom Search Packages to Fit Your Ministry

Churches and ministries have widely varying needs based on differing programs, geographic location, state law requirements and diversity of applicants. We help shape your Background Checks  to match your ministry’s specific needs. 

We’ll be with you every step of the way to build a screening solution that works for you.
