Do you know the background of every ministry worker the children at your church encounter?

Child sexual abuse is a very real problem in ministries today. The good news is you can protect the precious children of your church and decrease your church’s risk of a costly allegation when you implement a training program like Reducing the Risk.

Created by noted legal expert Richard Hammar, JD., LL.M., CPA, Reducing the Risk is designed to help churches train pastors, staff members, and volunteer leaders every year with ease.

Online streaming videos and downloadable training workbooks walk participants through an effective screening and selection process, common supervision scenarios that require quick, thoughtful decisions, and tips and insights on best practices that can most effectively reduce vulnerabilities.
