Implementing Safe Church Policies, Skip Masback – Video and Discussion Questions

Rev. Skip Masback talks about how to go about implementing a church safety policy.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Who from your church will be involved in communicating the reasons for the policy and getting full community buy-in?
  2. What are the ways we regularly communicate with both our youth families and the wider congregation and how can we use these to communicate our safety policy appropriately?
  3. Who is responsible for making sure we are living within the guidelines of our policy?  If this changes, how do we determine who will take on this responsibility?
  4. If we have a Supervisory/Leadership Board for the policy and members change over time, how do we orient and train new leaders?
