Team Member Onboarding

To get started in serving at The Branch Community Church's Children and Youth Ministry, new team members must complete several essential steps. These measures are in place to ensure child safety, provide clear guidelines, and prepare volunteers for a fulfilling role in creating a safe and nurturing environment for our children as they grow in their faith. Your dedication to our community and the well-being of our youngest members is greatly appreciated.

step 1: complete a background check

As part of our commitment to child safety, all team members are required to undergo a background check. This step helps ensure a secure environment for our children. We take privacy and confidentiality seriously, and this information is handled with the utmost discretion. Click the link below to get started!

step 2: read through policies & procedures

To familiarize yourself with our guidelines and best practices, you'll need to read through the Children's Ministry policies and procedures. These documents outline important protocols for maintaining a safe and nurturing environment.

step 3:  watch this sexual abuse training video

The safety of our children is of paramount importance. Therefore, we require all volunteers to watch a sexual abuse prevention training video. This video provides valuable information on recognizing and preventing child abuse.


After watching the training video, team members are asked to complete a short test to ensure that they have absorbed the key information from the training. This step helps reinforce our commitment to child safety.
