5-Year Rescreening Volunteers

5-Year Rescreening Volunteers

If you have been serving continually for the last 5 consecutive years since your last background check screening with CEF of Evansville OR if you intend to resume your volunteer service after a lapse of 12 months or more, please complete each of the following sections before resuming your volunteer service.

Please Note the following before beginning the application:

  • Rescreening applicants may enter “5 year” in the required fields for the testimony, ministry experience, and all reference information on the online application form.
  • If you are completing this application form to be involved with a particular active Good News Club, please be prepared to indicate which club by school name.


Rescreening applicants must still annually complete each of the following prior to completing the online application (if not yet completed within the last 12 months):

  1. View or listen to the Protecting Today’s Child recording either by calling 1-866-878-4182 or by viewing the video by clicking here.
  2. Read the USA Child Protection Policy.
  3. Read and sign the CEF Worker’s Compliance Agreement.

Note: Completing these first three steps in addition to the online application with background check authorization below does satisfy the annual renewal form requirements in addition to those specific to the 5-year rescreening.

When you have completed the first three steps, you may continue to complete the online application below which includes national criminal background check authorization.

Special Information for Minor Volunteers (ages 12-17): You will need a parent or guardian’s permission on the final page of the form in order to participate as a volunteer. You may skip any fields relating to a driver’s license. The Social Security Number (SSN) field is required, but for the purposes of this form, since Background Checks will not be officially run for minors, you may enter all zeros instead if you prefer.

  • This system does not sync well with cell phones. PLEASE use a desktop or laptop to complete​ this process.
  • The system will time-out after approximately 10 minutes of no activity.
  • The application/screening process must be completed in 30 minutes or less.

Please complete the following steps:

If you are serving in a Good News Club or as a Party Club teacher:

  • Contact your Team Leader to let them know that you have completed your 5-Year Rescreening Application and Background Check Authorization and your Annual Renewal Form(s)

The local CEF office will help you determine any further training or screening requirements that may be required for you to continue volunteering with CEF ministries. You may proceed with your intended service after receiving all necessary approval/clearance from CEF — remember, proper screening and training is what helps keep everyone safe; we appreciate your patience with this vital process! Please reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.

Thank you for your willingness to serve!
