Thank you for your interest in serving with children and youth at Emmanuel. This application is part of our Safe Church Screening process. Our commitment is to be a trustworthy environment for both vulnerable people and the volunteers who work with them. We look forward to meeting you and helping you find a place to serve! Volunteers must attend Emmanuel for 6 months before the Safe Church Screening process can be complete. Take your time filling out this form, but be careful to complete it before you close the page, or your changes will be lost.
In order to provide a safer environment for our children, it is important to include the following questions as part of our application process. Answering "yes" to these questions does not necessarily disqualify you for ministry. We recognize that these issues are sensitive and all discussion is kept confidential within the ministry leadership team. If you would prefer to discuss these issues in person, please let us know.
Please list two character references. Do not include your family members or a Pastor at Emmanuel. We only contact references by email. If possible, include one Emmanuel attender (or use your former church if necessary) and one friend or colleague.
I certify that the information contained in this application is complete and correct to the best of my knowledge. I understand that if my character or morals should be deemed inappropriate at any time during my volunteer service, Emmanuel will be entitled to immediately suspend my assistance. I will immediately inform a pastor or staff person at Emmanuel if any allegation of a criminal offence (including abuse, violence, alcohol or drugs) is made against me. I authorize the individuals and organizations listed to provide any information requested pertaining to my character and fitness to participate in a ministry at Emmanuel. I release forever all references from liability from any damage that may result from furnishing such evaluations. As an approved volunteer, I agree to be accountable to the leadership and policies of Emmanuel, and to refrain from unscriptural conduct in the performance of my duties. I subscribe to the Statement of Faith
and agree to follow the Safe Church Policy.
