Here at First MB we make safety one of our highest priorities. Our goal of protecting our ministry, children, students, and volunteers/staff from the risks of abuse and allegations of abuse is imperative, which is why we have a strong volunteer screening policy. Anyone interested in helping out in any ministry who works with minors is required to fill out the volunteer application, complete a background check, and complete . It's a simple process with a big impact.
There are four steps to the application:
- Step 1: Complete the online volunteer application where we ask background questions as well as what ministries you would like to serve in throughout the year. Please keep your answers brief. The page will "time out" after 20 minutes. You must be able to finish the whole application in one sitting. No saving answers and finishing it later.
- Step 2: Once we receive your application, you will be emailed a link for a background check request. Please follow the link and complete the request.
- Step 3: Once the background check clears, you will be emailed a link to complete required online sexual and physical abuse training.
- Step 4: Set up meeting with either Kimberly Nyquist, Kids' Ministry Admin, or Kyle Goering, Student Ministry Pastor.
You will receive an email from us once both necessary parts have been completed. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Pastor Kyle at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kimberly at email@example.com.
