This background check policy, coupled with our Policy on Safeguarding God’s People titled Toward Healthy Ministry: Safeguarding God’s People From Abuse, support our goals to foster the highest standards of ethical behavior in ministry settings and to ensure an environment free of abuse, exploitation and harassment. These policies set professional expectations for all people (clergy, lay employees, contractors, volunteers) serving in our diocese.
