  • Background Check Consent Form (Each staff member and volunteer should complete this form for a background check prior to their involvement with children).
  • Suspected Incident Report (Submit to conference if child abuse incident is suspected).
  • Report Disclosure (This disclosure statement must be signed by each staff and volunteer who will have a background check. Don't forget to include social security numbers!)
  • Known Offender Guidelines (Every Adventist church and school in the Minnesota Conference must abide by these guidelines for involving known offenders in activities).
OSHA Requirements
  • Employee Right-to-Know Program (Outlines the conference program for workplace safety. This should be personalized for your church).
  • Work-related Illness & Injury Log and Report (This instruction booklet and log must be accessible at each church.
