Dear Northwest Baptist Disaster Relief Volunteer:
Because of your commitment Northwest Baptist Disaster Relief continues to position itself as one of the best mass-care disaster response organizations in the Northwest. In order to maintain this level of effectiveness the NWBDR leadership team requires that every team member successfully pass a basic background screening. Protect-My-Ministry is the company providing this service to NWBDR; they meet or exceed all of the industry standards for information safety, security, and effectiveness. This screening is required of every team member and is valid for up to three years. The costs for the screening is based upon your residence (the fees charged by states to access the information varies). The fee for Washington residents is $10.50. The fee for Idaho and Oregon residents is $18.00. Make your check payable to Northwest Baptist Convention and send to your regional coordinator (click here for contact info).
