  1. Open and log in to the Membership Manager.

    NOTE: The background check requests will be sent to the email address you specified in the Settings area (E-Mail, Email 2, or Email 3). To review your settings at any time, click the [Settings] button on the Background Check Manager screen.

  6. A "Protect My Ministry" window will appear showing the selected individual's information in the top left-hand corner. Review the applicant's information on the screen to verify that it is correct.
