SecureSearch Testimonials

Mars Hill Church, Seattle WA

Our experience with SecureSearch has been great. Not only are the background check reports thorough, but Steve and his staff always make themselves available to walk through specific reports with us or answer any questions we have. When other churches have asked how we do our background checks, we are always quick to recommend SecureSearch. - Katie Allen, Assistant to Pastor Dick McKinley - Children's Ministry

Oasis Christian Fellowship, Bend OR

I have been impressed with the level of personal attention and support given by Secure Search. They have taken ample time to help me with questions and have responded rapidly to questions, researching pertinent information and conveying it to me in practical, easy to understand terms. –Tom Bonn

University Baptist Church, Miami FL

We are a fairly large church in Florida (about 1,700 people) and have been working with Steve Durie and his staff since July 2004. It has been a 100% positive experience. Steve and his staff are extremely committed to helping us with our background checks and safety precautions needed to protect our church. They are very easy to work with, will always answer any questions we have, and if I call and have to leave a message (which doesn’t happen very often because someone is always there to answer the phone) I can expect an immediate call back with the answers that I need.
The program is extremely user friendly, gives us a thorough and secure background check, and results are instant. This program meets the needs of our growing staff and volunteer base in every way. We feel confidant that our church is more secure because of this program, and we would recommend it to anyone interested in protecting their ministries. We are so glad to be taking the necessary steps to protect the people we serve, and to be doing it with Steve and his staff. We feel like our church is in good hands, and we look forward to a continued partnership. Thanks for everything Steve! -Julie Pelletier, Associate Director of Operations

Lake Ridge Baptist Church, Woodbridge VA

Thank you so much for providing a service that is convenient and easy to use! I am so excited to have some background checks completed and available to me! I appreciate your help and assistance and am so glad to have chosen this method for background checks. It had made my Monday!
Thank you and God Bless!
Kim Phillips, Director of Children’s Ministry

New Life Church, Colorado Springs CO

New Life Church (over 14,000 members) has had the pleasure of doing business with Steve Durie and his team since November, 2003. Their customer service is outstanding! Answers to my questions are provided either when I call or quickly thereafter. They are courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable not only about their product but the field of employment/volunteer screening in general.
Since I process between 750-800 background checks every year, I really appreciate Secure Search’s user friendly system for entering data and their quick turnaround time for results. Also, their pricing has saved New Life a considerable amount when compared to other companies offering the same product. Last but not least, I am very grateful that their invoice reflects subtotals for each of our departments – a real time saver for me!
I thoroughly recommend Secure Search for your screening needs. You will be well taken care of and your organization will be safer as the result. –Karen Gates, Human Resources Director
