SBTC has partnered with MinistrySafe to provide skillful screening training to help churches implement effective screening practices designed to reduce the risk of child sexual abuse in ministry contexts. 

Skillful Screening involves “Keeping the Wolf Out of the Sheep Pen”! This Training is meant to address areas of risk, including the risk of hiring an applicant whose sexual motives are inappropriate. Criminal background checks alone will not protect children from sexual abuse. Statistically, less than 10 percent of sexual offenders are ever criminally prosecuted, because two out of three children don't report abuse until years later, if ever. As a result, nearly 90 percent of offenders have no past criminal conviction to check.

This training will be from 10 AM to 2 PM with lunch provided. The cost is $10.
