Volunteer Background Screening

Volunteer Background Screening

Per Federal and State laws, background checks are required for all volunteers who work with children and youth. To start the background check process, simply click the following link to submit your information: https://ministryopportunities.org/shepherdofhills

If you are unsure if your clearances are active, please contact the church office.

Please note we no longer accept copies of background checks from employers or other organization. You must submit your information using our background screening service.

*Shepherd of the Hills Church uses the third-party company Protect My Ministry for all screenings. Your information for background checks is secured using industry standard encryption. Shepherd of the Hills will not process any background check without your consent. You will be prompted to provide consent when submitting your information at the link above.

Process Overview

The process for background checks begins with submitting your information to our background screening service, Protect My Ministry. You will be asked to provide your consent for Shepherd of the Hills Church to complete the background check.

Once your information is submitted, you will receive additional instructions by email from the state to process the screening (P.A.T.C.H and the Pennsylvania Child Welfare Portal). When completing the forms for the state, please specify you are a volunteer working with minors.

If you have any questions during the process, please contact the church office at 610-754-6446.
