Participants receive vital information on the key steps every church should have in place and active to provide a safe, secure and loving environment for their children, youth and families.

Staff and volunteers will be made aware of measures they can enact to protect their ministries and feel confident in handling any issues that may arise.

Our goal is that every leader should be clearly informed, pro-actively involved, and prepared for action as advocates of our families, our ministry staff and our community.
