A ten-hour course in Safe Sanctuaries will be offered online from March 25 – April 5. Participants will explore a variety of issues local churches may face as they seek to provide a safe environment for children, youth, and vulnerable adults. Safe Sanctuaries is not a ministry program – it is how we do all ministry. Course fee is $30 and payable through PayPal. All participants must also purchase the required text: Safe Sanctuaries: Reducing the Risk of Abuse in the Church for Children and Youth. Course activities include readings from the text, online discussion forums, and videos. Course facilitator is Ms. Stephanie Downey, an experienced trainer and member of the conference Safe Sanctuaries committee. Course registration is available here.
