Reduce risks by improving selection, supervision, and education
No church is immune to the problem of child sexual assault, regardless of size, location, or denomination. Child sexual predators exist, and they're always looking for opportunities to interact with children. They may volunteer to work with children in your nursery, Sunday school, or youth program. How are you going to manage this risk? Strengthen these areas within your ministry.
Use the Six-Month Rule
Don't give any volunteer worker the opportunity to be involved in a nursery or children's or youth work until he or she has been associated with your church for at least six months.
Screen All Workers
Investigating prior church membership and volunteer work.
