Church Membership Timeline

Is there a length of time someone should attend and get assimilated into the church before serving? Do you background check everyone?

We don’t have a time period because Jesus didn’t have one. The best training will happen as they serve. Don’t be afraid to have someone who is new to serve on your volunteer team. We do not background check everyone, but we do ask everyone to give us permission to background check them if they serve with kids, security, ushers, outreach and any other team dealing with sensitive information.
Every serve area does have its own protocol for what is required to serve. (i.e. 6-7 months of development for joining the worship or production team)
