It’s never been more important to know exactly who is volunteering, serving, working, and caring for your church family. That’s why we have partnered with Verified First to provide the most comprehensive background checks for churches.

Relieve your screening budget.

Protect your church while removing financial burdens with our Applicant Pay Serving Volunteer package. This package allows your volunteers to support your ministry by paying for their screening.


Limit access to screening.

Privacy is important when screening your staff and members. In Realm, you can designate which staff members have the ability to view, submit, and manage background checks.

Follow Up & Renewal

Better manage background checks for church volunteers.

You can search for cases where follow-up is needed or when it’s time for a renewal, as well as query and report on other key background check information all directly in Realm, enabling your volunteers to stay up-to-date on their screenings.


Packages to fit your needs.
