Background Screening

Background Checks

Here are links to two companies the conference has used for background screenings. Churches are invited to use one of these companies or another company.  It is your responsibility to check with your insurance provider to verify that the option you choose will satisfy the requirement of your policy.

Track-1/PeopleFacts for employees, contractors, volunteers:
The Dakotas Conference teamed up withTrak-1/PeopleFacts, an accredited provider of background screening, which will enable you to safely and securely screen your employees, contractors and volunteers.

To set up a Track-1 account, please fill out the following form HERE which will be sent to the company and they will contact you to set up a church account for you.
If you already have an account with Track-1/PeopleFacts, you can access the website here: Trak1.

The conference covers the administative cost and your church will receive a bill only for the screenings. The cost of screenings ranges from $35-$48 and there are options for volunteer as well as staff screenings.

Camp Background Checks for volunteers:

The Dakotas-Minnesota Area Camp and Retreat Ministry uses Camp Background Checks for screening volunteers. We have used this company for several years and have found them responsive and easy to work with. Individual churches are also eligible to create accounts with the company. There is no annual fee. You are only billed for the background checks you run. The cost is around $11 for each screening. Add-on options, such as motor vehicle reports and county of residence searches, are available for additional fees. To set up a free account for your church, please contact Camp Background Checks via one of the options below.
