The North Georgia Conference provides Safe Sanctuaries training and background checks using Trak1 Technology.
1. The only cost to churches is the actual cost of the training and/or background checks. The North Georgia Conference is covering the set-up fee, the monthly fee and the invoice fee.
2. There is flexibility in how each individual church may set up their account. They may elect to have volunteers/staff register for the background checks online themselves or the church may serve as the gate keeper of that process, entering the info for each individual that needs a background check. The church may elect to pay for the background checks or have the volunteer/staff member pay for their own.
3. The names of all individuals checked by the Conference or any local church that has chosen to use Trak1 will be kept in one database by Trak1 so that if a background check has already been done and is recent enough a new check will not have to be done, eliminating duplication of background checks and associated fees. Get Started:
