SON has been blessed by almost 30-years of faithful volunteers serving on short-term mission teams to bring the Gospel message of grace, love, mercy, and hope to those most vulnerable in the countries where we serve. By God’s grace not one child has been harmed by a SON team member, nor has any team member been accused of misconduct with a child. We intend to keep it that way!
In a measure to protect the children we serve, and every team member that serves with us, plus the integrity of SON Network, Background Checks will be performed on all team members (18 and older) following the initial application process. This is administered through a third-party provider, which will contact each team member directly seeking consent to the check and to obtain your Social Security number and other pertinent information.
