Church Background Checks - Why

Why does a Church need Background Checks?

Now more than ever before, due diligence is critical for churches, particularly in the care of kids & finances.  Background checks deter criminals and helps you identify predators and people who have a questionable background.  It also gives peace of mind to church leaders, members, and parents knowing that these safety measures are in place. 

Criminal Watch Dog listed this as one of the biggest legal threats for churches today – neglecting the screening of people serving in your church.  Churches that don’t run and maintain background checks are literally one lawsuit away from having their churches shut down.  The answer is simple: Background Checks.
