Maintaining a safe environment for our children is a top priority for the Iowa-Missouri Conference. All staff and volunteers working with children must complete a background check.

Verified Volunteers provides online training and screening for all staff and volunteers working with children in Adventist churches across North America.

Upon registering, there will be an online course lasting 40-60 minutes. This can be done all at once or you may save at any time and continue later. At the end of the course you will be allowed to enter your personal information and complete the screening portion. All training must be completed no more than one month after registering. 

As in the past under the previous background check provider, Shield the Vulnerable, the training and background screening will be valid for three years from the date both were completed. The new system will provide reminders when the training and screening need to be renewed.

Registration

If you previously registered with Shield the Vulnerable and your training and background check are still valid, no action is required at this time.

If you are a new applicant or if you previously registered with Shield the Vulnerable and it’s time to retrain and re-screen, proceed with registration.

If you are unsure of your status, please contact the conference office at 515.223.1197.
