At Checkr, we’re committed to helping faith based organizations simplify their background check process for volunteer ministries and new staff members.

Checkr PlanningCenter Integration

More Efficient Background Checks

Our easy-to-use platform integrates with Planning Center. Over 8,000 faith-based organizations use Checkr for clear, easy background checks for volunteer ministries and new staff.

  • Mitigate risk and maintain compliance without increasing operational spend.
  • Easily order background checks within the Planning Center platform.

Better Volunteer Experiences

The volunteer experience of completing a background check through Checkr with  Planning Center is seamless and intuitive for your volunteers.

  • Checkr offers volunteers a self-service portal as well as access to our U.S.-based candidate experience team with both email and phone support.  
  • Because volunteer information is already stored in Planning Center, Checkr automatically reduces the information requested from that volunteer during their background check.

“My favorite aspect of Checkr is that it integrates into our Church Management System. This allows background checks to be initiated from a person’s record and, when complete, updates the person’s record in our system.”

Sam B., Pastor of Technology

Fully Integrated Workflow

Checkr’s intelligent system automatically triggers a background check and delivers its status, right in Planning Center.

  • Fully integrate your volunteer placement workflow between Planning Center and Checkr.
  • Improve the speed and efficiency of your screening and placement processes.

“We have seen background checks get done in as little as three minutes because the recipient did it immediately when we sent it. Checkr’s service in speed, security, ease of use for us and our candidates far exceeds that of other vendors we have worked with.”
