At MMC, we take the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of our children and teens very seriously. In light of this, we have a thorough screening process for all applicants who have expressed interest in serving in these areas.
We know that there is no such thing as a perfect volunteer. However, we do believe that there are some volunteers that are the perfect fit. When working with children and teens, we know that volunteers become role models in the eyes of our youth. For this reason, we strive to put volunteers in front of them whose lives and lifestyles best exemplify biblical values and our values as an organization.
If the following situations describe your current status, approval for serving in this area will not be granted.
If you’ve been arrested for, charged with, are on deferred adjudication or regular probation for, or have been convicted of sexually oriented, sex related, or physical abuse crimes, either misdemeanor or felony.
If you are currently cohabitating with a person of the opposite sex that you are not related to nor married to.
PLEASE NOTE: If for any reason, your answer(s) to any questions in the application/ background check process prevents you from being pre-qualified as a volunteer in this area, this doesn’t mean you can’t still make a really big difference in people’s lives. We would encourage you to submit your application and we will find a place that is right for you.
