FellowshipOne has always put a premium on security and background checks for churches. As the risk to children, adults, property, and information continues to rise, every church, regardless of size or denomination, must implement security practices.

Thorough background checks for volunteers and staff is a great first step. FellowshipOne church management software makes it simple to obtain and manage secure church background checks. FellowshipOne automates the submission process and stores the results on member profiles, providing easy access for volunteer coordinators.

It can be a daunting task to manage tens, hundreds, or even thousands of church volunteers across multiple ministries and even multiple campuses. FellowshipOne helps you to keep track of the countless staffing assignments, attendance records, and background check results.
