SBC Abuse Prevention

The Abuse Reform Implementation Task Force (ARITF) of the Southern Baptist Convention has created a ministry toolkit as a church resource. The desire and goal of this toolbox is to make every church the safest place on planet Earth for every child, student and adult who comes to a church.  These tools are not designed to force anything upon your church, but instead, to give your church the tools and resources needed to make your church a safe place.  To make our churches safe from abuse, we must be proactive. Developing policies and procedures ahead of time, training and educating staff and volunteers, as well as partnering with abuse experts will set your church up well to be a safe place for your community. It is up to the pastors and leaders of a church to lead this charge.
