Who watches over believers in love? Who marks their growth in grace? Who advises and exhorts them from time to time? Who prays with them and for them as they have need? This, and this alone, is Christian fellowship.  -John Wesley

Background Check for Leaders & Hosts

We ask all new CG Leaders and CG Hosts to complete a Background Check before serving and we require a background check to be rerun every three years during the length of service.

You will be contacted by one of our CG Ministry Leadership Team members when it is your time to renew. Thank you so much for complying with this process and policy to make sure ALL our servant leaders are screened, trained and well-prepared to lead and model for adults a Below are some valuable tips to assist you with this process:
