CANDIDATE/ EMPLOYEE BACKGROUND CHECKS
One of the crucial steps in the hiring of Pastoral and Executive Staff members that is often overlooked is the need to do background checks. This needs to go beyond the background checks that churches need to do for ministry workers. In addition to the criminal check, churches would be wise to do an education verification and credit check. Vanderbloemen Search Group, a retained executive search firm offers this service to churches who have already begun the search process. There is a $295 fee for this service.
