Sorry if I have missed this, but can you add a step for Admin to validate a self-registered user before allowing them access to private areas of the website?

Than may depend on what method you are using for "self-registration".

We allow users to register a new Church Admin user without auto-generating a WordPress account. This creates a situation where a user is created in the database, our Administrators are emailed, and then (at their discretion) a WordPress user may be created and linked to the user generated Church Admin user.
Sorry if that is confusing. There are other methods but using this approach we control all of the security of who can see what.

In the Support menu item of Church Admin you will find a fantastic set of shortcodes. The excerpt below is from that listing.

[church_admin_register create_user=FALSE admin_email=TRUE]
This shortcode allows new people to register and logged in users to update their own entry.
create_user=TRUE will create a subscriber user for each valid email address
admin_email=TRUE lets the admin email know that a new address entry has been created
exclude="middle-name,nickname,prefix,date-of-birth,marital-status,image,small-groups,classes,socials,ministries,mobile,gender,custom" allows you to exclude and or all of those fields from the form
