The United Church of Christ and affiliated organizations have historically been very proactive in combating sexual misconduct within our Church. To facilitate the completion of certain screening recommendations that appear in the Parish Leadership: Safe Churches Policy Guide and Making Our Churches Safe for All document, the leadership of the UCC have chosen to work in cooperation with Oxford Document Management (ODM), a Minneapolis, Minnesota based screening company with a proven track record of service to the broader religious community.
A message from Oxford Document Management:
For over 25 years ODM has worked exclusively with religious organizations seeking independent and comprehensive background checks of clergy, prospective clergy, church staff, and volunteers. This work is our ministry and our objective is to provide you with background information on your candidates that is the most reliable, timely, and modest in cost. And although the work we do is rather complicated, we strive to keep things as simple as possible for you.
At ODM, we differ from the competition in several key areas:
We are sincerely honored to work in cooperation with your denominational leadership to develop an online registration process that has been customized for UCC organizations.
