Process & Training

Potential leaders from around the world come to us with their passions wanting to join the Great Awakening as an affiliate Assembly Planter or a Moreh/Morah. Consequently, each year we are faced with more opportunity than we have time or resource. Without a clear vetting process of quality leaders, we can easily be vulnerable to compromised character and poor reputation. Sexual harassment allegations, domestic violence assaults, infidelity, and immodesty, have all come too close for comfort within the ranks of the Great Awakening leadership.

We have developed a new vetting process that is thorough and stringent. This new process will ensure that we have complete transparency throughout the Great Awakening. These checks are reserved for all leaders in the Great Awakening International. Additionally, the Great Awakening will be using a specialist vetting service to check the history of current and future potential leaders, ensuring that their clean record can be noted down.

The New Vetting Process includes the following steps:

  1. Currently serving in a local assembly and recommended by a GA Lead Moreh
