We've partnered with Protect My Ministry to offer a comprehensive Child Safety Training Course for all ministry employees and volunteers. Trainees receive a score at the end to indicate their understanding of the material.

The Child Safety Training Course is completed online at any chosen day or time. It consists of 5 lessons covering the following topics:

  • Lesson 1: Defining Child Sexual Abuse

  • Lesson 2: Victim Behavioral Characteristics

  • Lesson 3: Characteristics of Child Molesters

  • Lesson 4: Making a Difference

  • Lesson 5: Responsibility & Reporting

Employee versions of the training have additional lessons.

At the end of the training, a quiz will be presented to measure understanding of the material. A minimum score of 70 percent is required. You will also have the opportunity to download pdfs of each lesson and links to resources for more information on the topic.
