Join us November 5, 2019.
Child protection is one of the top priorities for any church or Christian ministry. Not only is the protection of vulnerable people of paramount importance but the reputation of Christ, His Church, and The Gospel are at stake. Child protection programs are far more complex than many realize, and responding when there have been allegations is even more complex. Child protection protocols should include screening workers, creating a safe environment, and responding to reports of abuse. Is your church doing what it should to protect children and vulnerable people? Do you know the red flags and common mistakes that harm children and get organizations in both short-term and long-term trouble?
Find out by attending this free workshop led by Theresa Sidebotham, attorney at law and expert on abuse prevention.
