Step Three-Volunteer Screening
Complete the documents needed to volunteer with a ministry of Denton Bible Church (Volunteer Screening Form and the Child Protection Policy). If you are currently serving in a ministry of Denton Bible Church, you may have already completed the following documents. Contact the missions office if you have questions. Once completed, return the documents to the SERVE Missions office or the Denton Bible Church main office in an envelope marked care of SERVE missions.
Step Four- Passport
If you already have a passport, make sure you know where it is and that it hasn’t expired. If you do not have a current passport, start working on getting a new or updated passport. We will need a copy of your passport in order to buy plane tickets. Please send a color scan of your passport to firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you do not have access to a scanner, bring your passport by the DBC main office, to the DBC SERVE office, or to a DBSM event (like the first team meeting on October 22, 2017) for a staff member to scan the passport.
