Safe Haven Guidelines

Safe Haven Guidelines outline the ways adults and children should interact in ministry settings.

For the sake of the witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we are intentional, open and clear about the integrity and standard of conduct to which each congregation, institution, organization or agency in ministry is called and to which its leaders are held accountable. Safe Haven Guidelines help keep the children and the adults who are leading them safe.

This document is intended to provide guidelines for a “Safe Haven” for children and youth in congregational life.
