Does your local church have a policy in place for protection of children, youth and vulnerable adults in your congregation? This template will help.
Bridget Nelson and the Rev. Kathy Pittenger are Conference staff members who support those in ministry with young people.
These two leaders, with the support of the Conference Protection Policy Team, have created a document that local churches may adapt for their context and use as a Protection Policy for work with children, youth, and vulnerable adults.
Sample forms and information about background checks are also included.
