Child Abuse Prevention

Dear LifeBridge Volunteer:

Thank you for volunteering your time at LifeBridge, and for helping us adhere to our Child Abuse Prevention policy and keep our children safe. It is the intention of the attendees, members, volunteers, and staff of LifeBridge Church (LBC) and the LifeBridge Preschool (LBP) to provide a safe and secure environment for our children and youth entrusted into our care. Our policy and procedures are for the protection of our children, youth, employees, volunteers, and attendees at LBC and LBP.

Child Abuse Prevention Training

All LifeBridge staff and volunteers working with minors are required to complete our online training module. You will want to set aside some time when you can sit (without interruptions) and go through the module carefully. When you are ready, please click on the Child Abuse Prevention Training Module link below. Once you have completed the training, please print and sign the last page and bring it to the LifeBridge Church Office. Once you have completed the training and submit your completion form, you will not be required to do this again.

Criminal Background Check

Yearly Criminal Background Checks must be submitted for all staff and volunteers at LifeBridge. You will be asked by our Children’s Ministry Director, Nancy Burgess, or your ministry leader to submit your background check information yearly. The check is processed through True Hire, an outside background check service, and the results are submitted to LifeBridge. Your information is not retained by LifeBridge, only the results. To submit your background check application please visit the link below.
