We must be trained to recognize and respond to abuse before it occurs in the church. Policies, procedures, guidelines and practices to safeguard the innocent are just the beginning.

Those who seek to abuse children, teens or vulnerable adults see the church as an easy target if training, screening, policy enforcement, and a commitment to safety and security are not readily apparent. Safety and Security N.C. pulls together a plethora of helpful tools, training and resources for churches to grow in their preparedness and response to abuse.
