SBTC has partnered with MinistrySafe to provide Skillful Screening Training to help churches implement effective screening pratices designed to reduce the risk of child sexual abuse in ministry contexts.

Is your church screening staff members and volunteers effectively: ‘keeping the wolf out of the sheep pen’? Are kids safe in your church?

A meaningful screening process for child-serving ministries utilizes questions designed to elicit a high-risk response.

Do your screening personnel recognize 'high risk indicators'? 

This comprehensive training describes an effective screening process, incorporating offender studies exposing male and female OFFENDER CHARACTERISTICS, RISK INDICATORS and life patterns. 

MinistrySafe was created by attorneys who are sexual abuse experts. After decades of litigating sexual abuse cases, Gregory Love and Kimberlee Norris founded MinistrySafe to help churches meet legal standards of care and reduce the risk of child sexual abuse. MinistrySafe provides preventative tools tailored to fit the needs of churches, camps, schools, youth sports, daycares and other children’s programs.

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