Dear Ministry Partner,
Welcome to the Family Ministry of Prince Avenue Baptist Church. Our goal is not only to help each child feel welcomed, loved, and accepted, but also to aid in the discovery and development of God’s purpose for his or her life. In order to be able to accomplish this goal, it is very important for us to provide a safe and secure environment for both our children and our workers.
The following information will provide detailed information about our church’s volunteer policy, statement of faith, child abuse, and proper display of affection policies as well as the process for a volunteer application and background check consent. Please carefully read all of the information listed below first then complete the online application which will authorize a national background check. (You will be asked if you have read the policies listed)
Note: Minors (under 18 yrs) are not required to complete the criminal background check consent form. It is our desire to see our teenagers serve within the ministries of our church, so if your child under the age of 18, wishes to serve, please have him/her stop by any of the check-in desks and request a student volunteer packet. A parent or guardian signature must accompany each applicant signature. The parent/guardian signature acknowledges that the parent and child have read and understand all the forms and that you grant permission for the minor to serve in a ministry area.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to serving our Lord alongside you.
Serving Jesus together,
Your Family Ministry Staff
