The number of churches signing up for LifeWay Christian Resources' background check program increased by 100 percent over the last year.

Jennie Taylor, marketing coordinator in LifeWay's direct marketing department, said the dramatic increase "shows how serious churches and organizations are about protecting their children, students, employees and congregations."

Personally, I would not trust LifeWay exclusively. Not saying I would listen to what they had but I would certainly do some other checks to verify what they did or did not find.

What bothers me about this is how a third-party corporation with no accountability is doing background checks, but the people they are checking on have no idea where their information comes from or how it is compiled, and have no way to correct or challenge it. What about false positives? You have no recourse at all, even though this information can affect your employment and livelihood. Most of the databases I've seen about people have a lot of junk information in them. I would not believe anything in these databases.

LifeWay doesn't disclose on its web site (that I can find) who they outsource their background checks to.
