PA recently passed a law relating to protecting children from child abuse and mandating what needs to be reported and by whom. As part of that law, staff and adult volunteers (age 18 and older), who volunteer/serve in ministries related to children and youth, are required to provide evidence of background checks and clearances.
All volunteers are required to provide the following 3 background checks before serving in Children's or Student Ministries. A current list is held securely in our church office.
Clearances are valid for 5 years and are transferable from places of employment.
Please provide your reports to Leah Kochersperger or Cathy Muscara (or their designee) so LHCC can maintain a copy of your reports. You must keep your original copies.
We value each of our children and youth as well as our wonderful volunteers who serve in ministry! We all desire to keep Living Hope Community Church a safe place where people can learn that Jesus loves them!
Please contact our Office Administrator, Leah Kochersperger with any questions.
