safeguardingThe Episcopal Church takes the safety of everyone very seriously and has a zero tolerance policy for sexual abuse or exploitation of any kind. Therefore, as a member of ministry you are required to complete an online training course by the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona. There are two courses; one is Safeguarding God’s Children and the other is Safeguarding God’s People.

Safeguarding God’s Children is a course on child abuse awareness and prevention education. There are six modules in this course one of which is a refresher that is taken five years after the initial five courses. Any ministry that has a child participant is required to take this course. Safeguarding God’s People is a course on preventing sexual exploitation in communities of faith. Those ministries that are actively involved in the development of a pastoral care relationship are required to take this course..

WITH MIND AND SPIRIT: LIVING A BAPTIZED, SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE ~ An organized time of Christian formation and education in preparation for baptism, confirmation, reception, or reaffirmation. This process is a time for training in Christian understandings about God, human relationships, and the meaning of life. Candidates participate in regular worship and Christian service and receive instruction in Christian faith and doctrine, including the scriptures. Entry into the process begins with a public liturgical act at the principal Sunday liturgy. Each person is presented by a sponsor who normally accompanies them through the process. The sessions are led by a catechist, and continue through the period of candidacy until baptism, confirmation, reception, or reaffirmation. A new class will form this fall.
