REQUIRED SAFE CHURCH WORKSHOPS AT ASCENSION
Help us keep children and adults in the church safe!
The Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Dallas have established three workshops that are required based on ministry participation in order to keep our church safe:
Safe Church: Preventing Sexual Abuse of Children: This training aims to prevent sexual abuse of children in any context at the parish.
Prevention of Sexual Exploitation in Communities of Faith: This program deals with the issues of relationships in ministry with adults.
Prevention of Sexual Harassment of Church Workers: This program is in the context of the church as a workplace.
All clergy, office staff, office volunteers, paid nursery workers, key lay leaders, and vestry members are required to be certified in all three workshops. In addition, anyone who has a key to the church and/or any volunteer who works with children and youth are required to be certified in Safe Church: Preventing Sexual Abuse of Children. Recertification is required every three years for all workshops. All workshops are available online in English and Spanish.
Contact the church office at 214-340-4196 to register for a workshop or if you have questions about any of the requirements for the workshops.
