About Safe Church

Free online training using the curriculum “Safeguarding Our Children” is now available for use by congregations in this diocese.  Each congregation has been assigned their safe church minister who can provide trainees with a unique ID and password they will need to access the program.  Because the program uses video clips, broadband Internet access is essential.  Completion of online training is required in order to attend the required follow up in-person 3 hour training session. Please register for the class with your Safe Church Minister. Recertification is required every three years. Please contact Lynn Eaton with any questions.
