To obtain your Child Abuse clearance & Criminal Background Checks in order to work in ministries dealing with youth, please go to Pennsylvania’s Child Abuse Clearance website.
On this page are detailed instructions for each of these clearances. The two clearances from this page that are needed for all volunteers are the Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, and the Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check. When utilizing the system, costs are FREE for these checks when signing up as a VOLUNTEER. Further training is needed for those within leadership positions of those ministries. Your ministry leader will let you know if this training is needed.
Completed Forms are to be given to Cheryl Brautigam.
FORMS MUST BE ON FILE BEFORE INDIVIDUALS WILL BE ALLOWED TO WORK IN MINISTRIES.
If you have any questions or need assistance filling out the forms, please see Douglas White.
