Section 3.2: The Selection And Screening Of All Persons In Leadership And Assisting Leadership


All persons, paid or volunteer, who assist and/or lead youth and children's programs must be screened with the following process: 1) complete initial screening form; 2) completion of a criminal records check authorization form (the person being checked upon bears all expenses in the process); 3) reference checks with a written record of responses; 4) a criminal records check initiated and paid for by the applicant; and, 5) a personal interview.

Applicants who have been convicted or have pled guilty to criminal charges of sexual abuse or molestation will be required to submit more information including, but not necessarily limited to, official court papers surrounding the charges, possible psychological testing, official papers confirming successful completion, and/or content of related counseling, and any other papers or interviews we may deem necessary. The norm will be to not place persons with previous convictions in positions of responsibility over children.

Persons must be a Member of Ray Of Hope Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ for six months before being considered for a position working with children and/or youth.
