Background Checks for Churches and Religious Organizations

At PSI Background Screening, we have an extensive history providing background checks for religious organizations, including churches, and extending from employees to volunteers.

We are an accredited organization that provides background checks for churches and other religious organizations. It is important to thoroughly screen the background of the individuals you hire to work or volunteer in a church, ministry, or other religious organizations. Church volunteer background checks for religious organizations are exceedingly important since they work very closely with vulnerable members of the population, such as children or the elderly. As a result, many religious organizations would do well to conduct church background checks for every worker and volunteer.

You should conduct the same background checks you might perform on an individual in childcare as on church volunteers or employees. This will help protect those that cannot help themselves, and it will help protect the reputation of your religious establishment—it’s well worth the investment.
