- 1 out of 3 girls and 1 out of 6 boys will be sexually abused before reaching 18 years of age.
- Child sexual abuse and resulting criminal and civil liability is a primary risk for churches and nonprofits.
- Background checks are not sufficient to protect your ministry or nonprofit from first-time offenders.
- You can begin to greatly reduce this very real risk with an effective online Child Abuse Prevention Training and Tracking System from our new partner, MinistrySafe.
In addition to effective policies and procedures, when staff members and volunteers understand the basic characteristics of a sexual abuser and the ‘grooming process’ - the mode of operation used by an abuser to infiltrate an organization and select and prepare a child for abuse -- they are better equipped to recognize and prevent abuse in church programs.
Created specifically for churches by experienced sexual abuse litigation attorneys, MinistrySafe provides effective online training and tools designed to create a safe environment for children in churches.
