Have you completed your CG Ministry Plan?

Use the CG Ministry Plan as a tool to keep your group focused on the three spiritual goals of Community Groups - connecting, growing, and serving together


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. (This is standard practice in all Hopevale ministry areas that include children.) 

To link to the background check,  CLICK HERE.


Type Shannon Rammler or CG Coaching Team in the space that asks who referred or asked you to complete this background check. 

Send us a copy (front & back) of your driver's license. You can: 

  • Stop by our Ministry Center (5360 Shattuck Rd. /Saginaw, MI 48603) during office hours, and we'll make a copy.
  • Take pictures of your license with your cell phone and email them to

Thank you. Please know that we handle this information with complete confidentiality!
