The type of background check you choose for a particular employee or volunteer will depend upon their role in your ministry. Certain positions, like those that involve children or finances, may require more scrutiny than others.
Many background screening providers offer different screening options, to make it easier for churches and related ministries to customize their screening programs based on their unique needs. Look for a background screening provider that's willing to work with your ministry to create a screening program and package that best fits your needs. You may want to consider a couple of different types of packages, depending on what role your prospective employees and/or volunteers are going to fill.
