Respect and Care
It is important, as God's people, that our churches and leaders set a high standard of care to all those who participate in ministries offered in our churches. The communities in which we live should be able to know that our churches are safe places for all to be.
Our duty of care applies not only to children and youth, but to the elderly and disabled, and all who place themselves in our midst.
Leaders in our churches should model their leadership on the example of Jesus as they deal with staff members, other leaders, or those who join with us to worship or participate in activities offered.
Training is provided for leaders in areas of Responsible Care of Children and Youth.
