As our culture and cultural expectations change, the church is called to lead. Church safety policies are no exception. The young people and vulnerable adults in our midst and in our communities deserve nurture and care founded in best practices that reflect our core values.
Actively engaged in mission and ministries of all types, we must model the highest standards of practice possible in order to establish and maintain safe and hospitable communities.
This workshop will train leaders in practices designed to maintain safe spaces in all aspects of congregational life.
Content will include:
Resources for continued development of safe spaces and for leadership training will be shared.
Contact Rev. Timoth Sylvia at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and if you have any questions.
