Reference Checks

Providing references from people who know you and are familiar with your experiences and interests allows us to share in their insight about the special abilities you bring to this ministry partner position at LUMC. Their insights with regard to your gifts in working with children, youth or vulnerable adults are especially helpful in this screening process.  

References from within or outside LUMC are both appropriate. We do request that your references have known you for at least three years and are not related to you by blood or marriage.

Once we have received your volunteer interest form with your references, we will contact your references by e-mail or phone, offering a reference form for them to fill out or an opportunity to provide their reference by interview. The references provided are confidential and will not be shared with anyone other than those involved in the screening process.
