Volunteering with Bridge Disability Ministry is a challenging and immensely rewarding opportunity to love families in our community and serve the Lord! We're thankful that you're thinking about joining us as we minister to these great kids! Bridge offers volunteer orientations for new volunteers, those considering serving with us, and those who would like a refresher course. Orientations cover Bridge news, programs, policies, and expectations and also provide a chance to ask questions and become familiar with Bridge. We offer specialized training programs for our volunteers as well. Those who serve with Bridge are required to undergo a background check.

Volunteer Screening 

To ensure the safety of all of Calvary’s kids, all volunteer staff (ages 18+) who serve in Kids, Student, and/or Bridge Ministries are required to complete three levels of background checks; two from the state of Pennsylvania (child abuse and PA state police criminal check) and one from the FBI (fingerprinting). If you have lived in Pennsylvania for 10 years or more, you can fill out an affidavit that clears you from getting fingerprinted. Volunteer screening is a Pennsylvania state requirement that Calvary abides by. If you have any questions concerning background checks, contact Linda for more information at lmarek@calvary-church.com.
