Protecting Kids at Church
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month—this video shows how your church can act.

April is Child Abuse Prevention month. Church should be the safest place on earth, where kids can learn and grow in their faith. Sadly, many children have experienced abuse—physical, emotional, and sexual—at the hands of people they trusted at church. The video clip featured here highlights curriculum your church can use for training all staff, volunteers, and board members on best practices for protecting kids at church.

We also have more resources for keeping children safe in our store and on ChurchSafety.com, a joint ministry website of Christianity Today and Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company.

I was very happy to find out that the church we attend has a Safe Care program. In order to work with any minor children, volunteers have to submit to a background check and have to have personal references. Every minor child has to be in the care of no less than two Safe Care approved volunteers. There are also strict bathroom guidelines, as well. The a Safe Care program at our church makes us feel better about leaving our granddaughter in the care of volunteers that we do not know personally.
