Safeguarding God’s Children / People

The Episcopal Church takes the safety of everyone very seriously and has a zero tolerance policy for sexual abuse or exploitation of any kind. Any ministry that involves a child or pastoral care needs is required to take the following courses:
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.
Safeguarding God’s People is a course on preventing sexual exploitation in communities of faith.
