The Jeremiah Project desires a safe environment for all children and youth. To that end, the Jeremiah Project performs background checks on its entire staff that are 18 years and older. The Jeremiah Project also requires that each church complete thorough background checks on all of its adult leaders.
Background checks for each adult leader should include – at a minimum – the following:
State Criminal History
Federal Criminal History
National Criminal Sex Offender Registry (OFAC)
These background checks must be completed through an agency the individual church deems reliable and trustworthy. We recommend that these background checks be completed through a reputable professional service provider. Churches are responsible for all costs associated with performing the aforementioned background checks.
Churches must provide, no later than
June 15, 2021
confirmation indicating that the background checks have been completed and are on file for all adult participants. A letter may be submitted to our PO Box or confirmation can be made via this online form.
We expect that churches will secure additional screened adults to serve as alternate leaders in the event that one or more adult leaders are unable to participate at the last minute.
Adult leaders must have had a successful background check performed within the last five years.
