General Ministry Level 1 Ministry Safe Requirements
At StoneBridge Church we do not accept open applications for volunteers with any ministries that work with babies through youth. We hand pick and ask our volunteers to participate in our ministries. Do NOT complete the volunteer requirements if you have not been asked by your Ministry Director to do so.
Thank you for being willing to volunteer with StoneBridge Church. Please complete the following six steps to fulfill our requirements to be a volunteer at StoneBridge Church.
PLEASE COMPLETE ALL 6 STEPS (SCROLL DOWN)
Please complete the Ministry Safe Volunteer Application and Code of Conduct. It should take between 5-10 minutes to complete. You will login using your Fellowship One login/password that you use for Stonebridge registrations/giving. Both adults of the same household may use the same login, but will need to complete the application independently.
We need the names of 3 references: a family reference, a personal/friend reference, and a professional/ministry reference. Please have the name, phone number, valid email address (this is where their reference is emailed to), and address BEFORE you start this form. The address of the professional/ministry reference may be the address of the work location or church.
The references are contacted IMMEDIATELY when you submit this form. Please make sure to contact your references BEFORE you complete this form to inform them that they will be receiving an email from Stonebridge Church requesting a reference for you. Not contacting them ahead of time can cause a delay in your application due to followup. The reference form should take your reference less than 5 minutes to complete.
You will receive event-specific policies directly from your Ministry Director related to the event your are volunteering for. You will need to sign these policies and return them to your ministry director when you get them. You will either receive them in person (at the event) or by email. Your ministry director will let you know how you will receive these. Please watch for an email from your ministry director with information regarding your policies.
Please click the link above to register for an appointment to receive a phone call to complete a 10-15 minute interview with the StoneBridge Church Ministry Safe Director .
Interview calls are completed on Mondays and Tuesdays (of non holiday weeks) between 10 am and 5:00 pm. If you are unable to register during these times please email the Director and request a custom appointment time. Please include days and times that you are available.
You will receive a separate email from the Stonebridge Church Ministry Safe System containing a link to complete a background check. This background check does not check any financial records, only criminal records. You have 7 days to complete the background check from when you receive the email before it expires. If your link expires, please contact your Ministry Director for a new link to be sent to you.
You are required to watch 4 hours of Ministry Safe Training Videos. You will receive 4 separate emails from the StoneBridge Church Ministry Safe Program. The first email will be from a StoneBridge Church Ministry Safe Committee member that will provide a document and information to help you through the training. The second through fourth emails will come directly from the Ministry Safe System. The second email will provide a direct link to a 1 hour video provided by Ministry Safe (this video does not need a login/password). A third email will be a link to create a username and password for Ministry Safe. The fourth email will be a link to a 3 hour video provided by Ministry Safe (this video needs the login/password). These videos provide training to help our volunteers provide a safer environment for our children. At the end of these videos will be a quiz that you must take and pass.
