Volunteer Clearances

Volunteer Clearances

All prospective volunteers must submit clearances prior to the commencement of services.

Dear friends,

One of our responsibilities at Living Hope Church is to ensure that our children and youth are in good hands.  

PENNSYLVANIA STATE LAW requires all prospective volunteers to obtain clearances to work with children or youth ages 0-17. 

Please complete BOTH clearances and email a copy or give a hard copy of each to Jan Null, our Director of Children’s Ministry (children@findlivinghope.com).  We encourage you to do them online and save as a PDF or a hard copy for your records.

1)  Report of Criminal History from Pennsylvania State Police

2)  Child Abuse History Certification from the Department of Human Services 

3) Additionally – a fingerprint based federal history (FBI) submitted through the PA State Police or its authorized agent is required for all volunteers who have lived outside the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the last 10 years.**

Those who have not lived outside the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania must swear or affirm in writing that they are not disqualified from service based on a conviction or an offense under Statute 6344.** 

**Please contact the Living Hope church office for further instructions at office@findlivinghope.com.

PLEASE NOTE: VOLUNTEER CLEARANCES ARE  FREE.  If you are on a page that shows payment required, you are on an “employee clearance page”, not a volunteer page.

Volunteers are required to obtain updated clearances every 60 months.

Thank you for faithfully serving to train our children in the ways of the Lord.
