There are more than 750,000 registered sex offenders across the country and, medical professionals explain, faith and community are often deemed a crucial part of their treatment to avoid re-offending.

Despite that more than half of those cases – at least 400,000 – involve children, many offenders slip under the radar and end up on voluntary leadership roles unnoticed, background check experts warn.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Churches rely heavily on volunteers who work with youth and children,” Josh Weis, executive vice president at Ministry Brands, a provider of church management software and screening products for more than 115,000 churches and organizations to provide services such as background checking software, told Fox News.
