(Information Received Is Strictly Confidential)
In order to provide a safe and secure environment for our children, we believe it is necessary to include the following questions as part of our application process. All information will be kept strictly confidential. (Police may access this information under warrant, if requested.) Answering “yes” to any of the questions may not necessarily preclude your involvement in ministry. A meeting will be arranged with a Pastor so that you may discuss the circumstances. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Please provide the names of three (3) individuals, excluding relatives, who could provide a reference for you. If you are a minor, you may use the name of a parent and/or teacher. If possible, include at least one reference from outside the church.
By submitting this application form, I hereby acknowledge that the information contained in this application is correct to the best of my knowledge. I authorize any references listed in this application to give New Hope Church any information they may have regarding my character and fitness for children’s/youth ministry, and I release all such references from liability for any damage that may result from furnishing such evaluations.
I also grant my permission for New Hope Church to perform a personal Criminal Record Check for the purpose of my protection against any false allegations and for the protection of those I serve. I consent to such an investigation with the understanding that the results will be kept in extreme confidentiality.
I further agree to adhere to the Child Protection policy as adopted by New Hope Church.
