CEF of the Lowcountry children

Step 1: Read the Statement of Faith and Worker's Compliance Agreement.

God's Word tells us in Amos, "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" We want you to know what our core beliefs are and how we all agree to work in unity. You are welcome to download and/or print these documents but it is not required. You will NOT need to sign or submit. As you complete the online application/background screening process you will be asked if you read and agree with the documents.

Step 2: Read and review the Child Protection Policy.

Please click here to read the policy. When you've finished, click the button below to watch the video. Please be sure your volume is turned up. If for some reason the video does not play properly, you may listen to the presentation by calling 1-866-878-4182. You will be asked in the online application/background screening process if you have reviewed and agree to abide by the policy.

Step 3: Gather some information for the online application.

You will need your driver's license and Social Security numbers.


​REMINDER: Please note that you will be asked in the online application if you have read/reviewed these and are in agreement with them. As you read/review, should a question arise, please contact our office BEFORE proceeding.
