“As it was then and as it remains now, the Church of God by Faith still sees a great need in the Ozark Community. We see hopelessness, despair, financial challenges, illness and lack of education.  We believe that we can join those of you who are already healers in our community by shining bright lights in areas that are in need of hope."

Matthews-Scippio Academy Ozark is concerned about the safety of its volunteers while on duty (whether on or off premises), the safety of its constituents (staff, community, etc.) and the protection of its assets and reputation.  To reduce these risks, prospective and, as applicable, current volunteers of Matthews-Scippio Academy Ozark will undergo a criminal background check that complies with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Volunteers are treated as applicants under the FCRA.  This policy sets forth guidelines for performing such background screens.
