John Murchison, Director of Children’s Ministry at the Austin Stone Community Church, provides several tips & procedures for keeping your kids safe in your ministry.
- As a children’s minister, you must get educated & trained.
- Have policies in your church that are known and followed.
- Background checks are very important, but they are not enough.
- Complete reference checks on your volunteers.
- Train as many volunteers as you can on the risk of sexual abuse to kids in your church.
