Church Safety and Sexual Abuse Awareness Training

Posted by andrea.weyand@denverseminary.edu

Church leaders and staff are invited to attend a church safety and sexual abuse awareness training led by MinistrySafe on Thurs., March 19, 9:30 a.m. – noon, at Denver Seminary. The event is free and open to the public.

The training will address common misconceptions, offender characteristics, offenders’ “grooming process,” common grooming behaviors, what to do if a child reports abuse, methods to reduce the risk of child sexual abuse, peer-to-peer sexual abuse, and reporting requirements.

MinistrySafe works to help ministries meet the legal standards of care and reduce the risk of sexual abuse litigation. The training will be led by Kimberlee Norris, director and co-founder of MinistrySafe. Norris is a sexual abuse trial attorney, who represents victims of abuse and provides crisis management and allegation response counsel to child-serving organizations.

This training is vital for church staff, volunteers, pastors, lay leaders, students, and ministry professionals. Find more information and register at www.denverseminary.edu/ministrysafetraining.
