Mennonite Mutual Special Pricing
We have partnered with Mennonite Mutual Insurance Co. for more than 3 years to provide comprehensive background screening solutions to their churches and ministries.
RefLynk is our new product for volunteer organizations. We know from research that 80% of sex offenders do NOT have a criminal history so we must find other ways of uncovering predatory behaviors. RefLynk is an automated reference checking software that will integrate with the background check process.
How Vulnerable is Your Church or Ministry?
Churches have many levels of risk from natural disasters, child safety which includes physical, emotional and sexual abuse, to active shooter situations. Unlike a school or corporation, you are an open and welcoming environment. A comprehensive security vulnerability assessment is the foundation for creating a safe ministry environment. This cannot be accomplished through a checklist found on the internet.
Our security assessment for churches combines an onsite review of the church, policies and interviews with both the staff, volunteer and members.
We provide a written guide that includes many things that can be implemented immediately, and for FREE, as well as a recommendations for background screening, visitor and volunteer management, cameras and technology.
And what sets our assessment apart, is we combine the assessment with training events that can be conducted onsite or through LIVE video webinars with topics such as:
- Recognizing Predictable Behaviors of Active Shooters
- Understanding Child Sexual Abuse and Grooming
- Understanding Domestic Violence
- Active Shooter for Civilians
- Developing Security Teams
Our process is completely paper-free.
We can configure a link for your volunteers to e-sign for the background check, enter their data and even pay for the background check if you want that option.
Community Bible Study came to use with a problem 2 years ago. They have more than 10,000 volunteers. Each volunteer was required to provide 3 references. That resulted in a minimum of 3 telephone calls IF the reference answered and provided feedback. Then each open-ended question was asked and written down and then reviewed. A very time-consuming and labor-intensive process.
With RefLynk, we converted this to an automated process that includes all reminders. The open-ended questions were converted to a Lickert Scale model so now each reference provides feedback to each questions on a scale of 1 to 5.
RefLynk has sped up their process and removed hours of labor in calling and compiling reference data.
