Protect My Ministry also recommends that each ministry employee and volunteer complete Child Safety Training. When staff members and volunteers have an awareness of the basic characteristics of a sexual abuser, the process by which an abuser picks and prepares a child for abuse, and indicators of child sexual abuse, they are better equipped to recognize and prevent abuse in ministry programs. If you church does not currently provide training, the New Mexico Conference recommends you utilize the online child safety training provided by Protect My Ministry at no additional cost!
