Protecting Children from Sexual Abuse in the Church

Protecting Children from Abuse v4

In this course, essential information, tips, guidelines and practices all designed to help ensure that the children within your congregation are protected when on the grounds.

[Online Course] Child abuse and neglect, sexual abuse and predation can occur anywhere, from the home to children’s church and the church nursery. Our children are our most precious resources, and treasured gifts from God. Remember the words of Christ Himself, “If anyone causes one of these little ones – those who believe in me – to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” 

This course is designed to help you understand the basics involved with child protection, child protection procedures, and the risks children within the church face. Learn the signs and symptoms of abuse and how to identify areas of vulnerability within church programs and ministries.
