Staff and Volunteer Online Training

Protect My Ministry also offers a cost effective online training program for your staff and volunteers.  In the past, training on abuse related issues could require scheduled seminars and turn into costly events which that did not always reach every volunteer.  Protect My Ministry offers online training which supplies the important information staff and volunteers need regarding abuse issues and that can be viewed in a way that meets their schedule.

Get Started with Background Checks and Online Training

The second option is Ministry Mobilizer – Bundle 1 which includes everything in Bundle 0 plus the annual fee of $149 for unlimited staff and volunteer online training.

(Please note that with all options there is a 24 hour setup period after you have initially signed up for the service.  Once setup is complete, your church is sent a notification and reports can then be ordered.)

Step 2: Utilize the State Online Consultation:

Once your account is set up use the Online Consultation tool from Protect My Ministry to help determine what background package is recommended for your state.  Osborne Insurance recommends that the minimum recommended package for your state be chosen by your ministry.

Step 3: Order Reports and/or Set up Online Training:

Once your account is set up decide which report you want to order. Most churches needs are met through either the Basic or Plus Package.  If you have chosen to purchase online training you can begin to send out the links to your staff so that they can begin their training.
