SERVE TEAM CLEARANCES

DSC00575.jpg

WE ARE COMMITTED

to providing a safe and secure environment for all children, youth, and volunteers who participate in any activities connected with Grace Chapel.

In accordance with state laws and best practices to create a safe place to experience the love of God, all Children & Youth Ministry SERVE Team members must complete these background check steps. Please submit a copy of each completed clearance to our business office prior to serving.

THANK YOU in advance for your willingness to complete this process. We sincerely appreciate your diligence in helping us to make sure Grace Chapel is a safe place for all to attend, grow, and serve!

(It is best to complete clearances on a computer rather than a mobile device— you may encounter issues during the process on mobile sites.)
