Adventist Screening Verification
“Church should be a safe place to bring our children. Therefore, everyone involved in work with children who are minors must meet ALL Church and legal standards and requirements” (Church Manual, Edition 18, pp. 168-169).
To meet these standards, the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists requires background screening and training through Adventist Screening Verification.
Who Has to Do It?
- those over 18 who are voted to serve within our churches or organizations,
- and those who are employed by the church and working with children and youth.
A criminal background check and child protection training must be completed every three years.
