Safe Church training is designed to increase awareness regarding sexual misconduct and abuse of power, to outline steps toward preventing abuse, to offer ways to intervene when misconduct occurs and to equip anyone in a position of parish leadership with ways of healing and rebuilding the body of Christ.
The training is required of all clergy and diocesan employees. It is also intended for wardens, vestry members, lay Eucharistic visitors, pastoral visitors, youth leaders, confirmation sponsors, acolyte leaders, choir directors, church school teachers, volunteers working in the parish on a regular basis and all employees of congregations.
Level II: Classroom training for all clergy serving in the Diocese, Diocesan employees, Church Employees, Youth Leaders, Lay Eucharistic Visitors, Stevens Ministers, Tutors, Pastoral Visitors, and those who visit the sick, elderly or those in prison on behalf of the church. Training is provided by certified trainers offered by the Diocese. This course must be renewed every 3 years. Note: Level II training supersedes Level I training. Those who take Level II do not need to take Level I. The Diocese will keep records of those who have completed Level II training and a certificate may be provided upon request. You will be asked in this online registration process to give the email address to the person you want to be notified as to your completion of this training.
