It has been the pleasure of the Discipleship Ministry Team to be able to offer free background checks for our churches and presbyteries over the years.
We have recently found the need for a more in-depth check and one that uses a Social Security number trace. These needs cannot be met by the company we are now using and because of this we are moving to a new company.
Due to this change, we are no longer able to offer free background checks for churches and presbyteries.
DMT is now partnering with Checkr to run background checks for our events like CPYC and Children’s Fest and you are welcome to join us. Checkr is willing to offer the same discount DMT receives to other Cumberland Presbyterian Churches and Presbyteries.
This basic background check will include Name, Aliases, Birth Date, and Social Security checks. It will check criminal background and sexual offender registry.
The basic background check through Checkr is $8 per person. They also offer a variety of different checks and you can see pricing for those below:
Basic $8 (if there is something found in basic check, Checkr will automatically run a county check and the total cost will be $18)
Driver Basic $12
Driver Standard $20
Driver Pro $31
Motor Vehicle Report $4
