No. Some types of convictions will automatically disqualify an individual from serving. Disqualifying information would include any history of a sexual crime, especially those against children. A crime of violence against another person within the past 7 years would also be disqualifying. If the background check performed through Protect My Ministry comes back as an “Alert”, then potentially disqualifying information turned up in the records. Convictions or issues must be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine if it is disqualifying. The key is to determine whether that past behavior, combined with other data available about the person, reasonably suggests that this person could pose a danger of sexually or physically abusing children. If the answer is “yes”, that person may not serve.

Ministry Mobilizer gives us faster access to background information and has allowed us to speed up the hiring process. We enjoy quick response, accurate information, and like the price structure.
Marlene Haddock, First Baptist Church
The background screening process can be very frustrating and costly when handled in the wrong manner. Protect My Ministry has provided our organization with the proper technology to expedite our reporting, archived information for easy retrieval and review, customer service that's prompt and easy to work with, and all at an affordable price. More so than that, we appreciate their commitment of faith, and to empowering other organizations in their ministry endeavors.
Rick Braschler, Kanakuk Kamps
With over 20 years of law enforcement experience I can attest to the fact that the strongest predictor of future criminal behavior is a person’s criminal history. As the manager of campus safety at Idlewild Baptist Church I depend on Protect My Ministry to provide a thorough assessment of every criminal history background check we request. For more than 3 years Protect My Ministry has been faithful to this task with timely, accurate and reliable service.
Rich Walker, Idlewild Baptist Church
We have benefited from knowing that we are not exposing the communities we work with or ourselves to unnecessary risk. We continue to have a perfect record in that we have never had a serious incident with a trip participant causing harm or acting inappropriately with any community member or fellow team member - thank goodness!
Hope Livingston, Living Water International
Online is saving us a large amount of time now. The results are more in depth than before, customer service is excellent.
