Family Promise Host Church Training
Even if you have volunteered with Family Promise in the past, the opening of Promise Haven brings new opportunities to serve and with it, new procedures and information to learn. St. Matthew’s will have training and support materials for volunteers in the days ahead. All volunteers should start with Family Promise 101 and 102 Training online. These modules take about 1 hour to complete and you do not need to do it all at one sitting. Register to access these courses at https://family-promise.coassemble.com/unlock/qMMJs2B#/
Safe Church Training
Hospitality host and overnight positions will require that you have completed Safeguarding or similar training within the past 3 years.
The Diocese is offering volunteers the opportunity to take the Praesidium Academy online module called “Keeping Your Church Safe” if you have not had Safeguarding. Please sign up for your selected shift by 3/7 if you need this training so that you can be registered to access this online course.
Hospitality and Overnight Hosts are required to pass a background check provided by Family Promise of Gwinnett. Click here for background check form
