Apply To Be a Volunteer!
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer. At Church of the Savior we strive to provide a safe environment for our children, youth and our volunteers. To that end Church of the Savior has adopted Operating Policies for All Children’s and Youth Ministries, which includes guidelines covering sexual misconduct. Every volunteer whom will be in direct contact with children or youth is required to be familiar with this policy.

As a part of the Child Protection Policy of Church of the Savior, every staff person and volunteer who will be in direct contact with children or youth, whether full or part-time, must fill out an application form, provide references, undergo a background check, and successfully complete the Online Child Safety Training Video Program. The application form and background check is processed online on a secure and confidential website. The results of the background check are reviewed by our Executive Pastor and limited review by pertinent C.O.S. staff members. If any information is uncovered that may impact an applicant’s suitability for ministry with children or youth, the applicant will be contacted and the information discussed with him or her.
Please be aware that the application form is rather extensive. Among other information you will be asked to provide:
* Current and previous addresses
* Driver’s license information
* Social Security number
* Name, address and contact information for 2 personal references.
This information is necessary to ensure that the background check is accurate. Also, please note that a driving history is obtained only when an individual is applying for a staff position or a volunteer position that would involve transporting minors. Although the consent form is standard for all applicants, credit checks are conducted solely on applicants for staff positions. NOTE: It is not the policy nor the practice of Church of the Savior to run credit reports on volunteer applicants even though authorization to do so is requested by the online application.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Church of the Savior Operating Policies for All Children’s and Youth Ministries or about the application procedure, please do not hesitate to talk to our Executive Pastor or Youth Pastor. Church of the Savior understands that the application and training process is somewhat lengthy, however it is a necessary and important step in ensuring the safety of our children, youth, volunteers, staff and the church.
To begin the application process click here:
After you complete the online application you will receive an email with a link to the Online Child Safety Training Video Program. You will need to set aside 45 minutes to 1 hour to watch the training videos and complete a short online quiz. Once you complete the quiz a staff member will be in contact with you soon to set up a face to face interview to complete the volunteer application process and to familiarize you with your volunteer duties.
Thank you again for your interest in joining us in ministry.
