Implementing Child Safety Strategies in Houses of Worship

Are there unseen risks your church or ministry may be missing when serving children under the age of 18?

No matter the size of your congregation or organization there are resources available to better protect and serve children as they learn and grow in faith. Northeastern Seminary is hosting a free, one-hour webinar on Tuesday, August 6, at 6:00 p.m. (EDT) for ministry and community leaders like you.

At this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Complete a preliminary child safety vulnerability analysis for your church or ministry addressing common key areas of risk
  • Identify how your church can safely engage with and protect children online
  • Implement best practices for safety and prevention 
  • Rethink what a community of wholeness can look like inside and outside of the church

You will also walk away with a downloadable Best Practices Toolkit that includes sources for further training and research-based information. 

Find new tactics and tools for implementing safety strategies for your congregation and community. Register now for this free webinar on August 6 at 6 p.m.


If you are unavailable on August 6, you can still register for the free webinar to receive access to the Best Practices Toolkit download and a link to the webinar on demand after the live event.
