Safe Church - Safe Children

How protected are the sheep in your ministry? Do you realize that only 10% of sexual offenders ever come in contact with the criminal justice system? Besides a background check, what else do you have in place to prevent sexual abuse in your church? When is the last time you updated your policies and procedures?

In this hour-long workshop, Children’s Ministry & VBS Consultant Kris Buckman will inspire your church to take every precaution possible to ensure the children in your ministry are safe from sexual abuse. Together, we’ll examine the misconceptions often shared about sexual abuse and additional measures you can put in place to safeguard those in your ministry.

Kris will also guide you through the 5-Step Safety System set up by Ministry Safe. This workshop will open your eyes to dangers that can lurk in even the “safest” churches.This training will be most helpful for those who serve in Children’s and Youth Ministry. It’s also wise to have administrators, Pastors, Church Staff, Safety and Security, Screening Personnel, Lay Leaders and Human Resources Representatives of your church attend as well.

Please don’t wait until it’s too late! Register for the training today!
