Permission to Obtain a Background Check
As part of the policy of the Northwest Church, a nation-wide background check also known as an investigative report is required for all volunteers and staff working with children at the church 18 years or younger.
I hereby authorize the Northwest Church and its designated agents and representatives to conduct a comprehensive review of my background causing an investigative report to be generated for employment and/or volunteer purposes. I understand that the scope of the investigative report may include, but is not limited to the following areas: verification of social security number; current and previous residences; and criminal history records from any criminal justice agency in any or all federal, state, county jurisdictions; nation-wide sex offender records; driving records, birth records, and any other public records.
I further authorize any individual, company, firm, corporation, or public agency to divulge any and all information, verbal or written, pertaining to me, to the Northwest Church or its agents. I further authorize the complete release of any records or data pertaining to me which the individual, company, firm, corporation, or public agency may have, to include information or data received from other sources.
The Northwest Church and its designated agents and representatives shall maintain all information received from this authorization in a confidential manner in order to protect the applicants personal information, including, but not limited to, addresses, social security numbers, and dates of birth.
The information contained in this application is correct to the best of my knowledge.
