Background clearances for staff and kids/youth volunteers

Welcome, friend. Paperwork is never fun, but we will get through it together! After all, it is super important that we keep our kids safe and are in compliance. If you are volunteering or working with kids under 18 years OR are on staff, these steps apply to you!

*If you have clearances from another organization, they are good for 5 years. Please skip to step #5!

Deep breath. Let’s go: (Please be sure to have access to a printer before you start)

  1. Print and sign the Revelry Church Child Protection Policy (coming soon!)

  2. Complete the PA Child Abuse Clearance. click here for instructions

  3. Visit https://epatch.state.pa.us/ to complete the PA Criminal History Clearance. (pretty straight forward, but if you’re stuck click here for instructions)

  4. FBI fingerprinting:

    • Volunteers:

      • If you have lived in Pennsylvania for the past 10 years and are a volunteer, please print and sign this disclosure statement, then proceed to #5.

      • If you have NOT lived in Pennsylvania for the past 10 years, and are a volunteer, skip to #5

    • Staff and paid workers: You must be fingerprinted for your FBI clearance. click here for instructions

  5. All printed forms can be given to our Executive Director, Jill Stiffler, or can be scanned and emailed to Jill.stiffler@revelrychurch.com. This includes copies of any certificates you receive in the mail. You will not be able to serve until we have everything on file.
