5 Part Safety System
1. Awareness Training
We cannot reduce a risk that we don’t understand. Providing employees and volunteers with facts needed to recognize the offender’s ‘grooming process.’
2. Skillful Screening
Keeping the wolf out of the sheep pen. Utilizing questions meant to elicit a high-risk response, and training employees to recognize high-risk behaviors.
3. Policies and Procedures
Policies are what you do, not what you say you do. Tailored policies must fit the specific programmatic needs of your ministry.
4. Background Checks
Criminal background checks are no silver bullet. 90% of offenders will never encounter the criminal justice system.
5. Monitoring and Oversight
Ensuring ongoing Safety System compliance through the Control Panel’s simple and efficient automation.
The American church is facing an abuse crisis
The Southern Baptist Convention has made a unified call to action on the issue of sexual misconduct among our churches. The SBC of Virginia encourages your church to take seriously these challenges and make available these resources and training opportunities.
