With more than one location, please click the “This is my main/primary location” circle to indicate where you are employed or, if you are a volunteer, where most of your ministry or service is performed.

  • You will then be prompted to submit information for a background screening, register for a Protecting God’s Children workshop*, view two online training modules, and agree to the Code of Ethical Conduct.
    • If you have previously attended a PGC workshop, the system will find and/or ask you to confirm your previous record of attendance. You will not be prompted to register for an upcoming workshop. If, for some reason, it does not match your previous training to this account and you are prompted to register for a class, please register for “PREVIOUSLY ATTENDED-DATE NOT LISTED” and send an email to the address below. We will apply the correct training record to your account.

You may use the links in your approval checklist to access these requirements. These steps may be completed all at once or may be completed separately at your convenience. You will receive an automated email weekly to remind you which requirements are outstanding. When all compliance requirements have been completed, your account will be approved and you will be clear to work with minors and vulnerable adults.
