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.


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

You must complete an online course lasting 40-60 minutes when registering. You can complete the course all at once or 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. 

If you are unsure of your status, please get in touch with the conference office at 515.223.1197.
