Event Details

Prepare for your children and youth programs with this five-day online workshop for congregations that don’t have a Safe Sanctuary policy or whose policy is outdated, needs revision, doesn’t meet the needs of current ministries, etc. Participants will learn why congregations should have an up-to-date policy, what the policy includes generally and specifically, and how to get a policy written, approved and implemented — or edited. Because this is an intensive workshop, participants will need to be involved on the site every day to receive a completion certificate. Plan on reading two documents, posting a response to one question, and posting responses to at least two other participants every day — a minimum of an hour a day. You are required to read "Safe Sanctuaries: Reducing the Risk of Abuse in the Church for Children and Youth," by Joy Thornburg Melton, as a part of this course. Participants need access to a copy of this book throughout the duration of the course. Following this workshop, you may decide to schedule six additional weeks of support while you get your policy written or edited. The additional time would consist of once-a-week, one-hour conference calls or chat room conversations, for an additional $150. This course is eligible for 0.5 CEU. Price: $50.
