Child Safeguarding Certification is Preparing for Launch!
A few months ago, GRACE announced that we had begun to develop a child safeguarding certification program for churches and other Christian organizations.
I am thrilled to announce that development of this program is weeks away from completion! Our team has work hard to create a process that will be comprehensive, but also very realistic for any church to achieve. In fact, each participating church will be assigned to a GRACE facilitator who will walk them through the entire certification process that will culminate with an on-site training of leadership, staff, congregation members, and youth.
Prior to officially launching this certification program,GRACE is planning to pilot it in a handful of churches this upcoming fall. If you know of any churches that may want to participate in this piloting phase, please have them contact us as soon as possible.
I am confident that this groundbreaking initiative will transform our Christian institutions into communities that lead the world in preventing and responding to the abuse of children with excellence.
