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:
- Who from your church will be involved in communicating the reasons for the policy and getting full community buy-in?
- 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?
- 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?
- If we have a Supervisory/Leadership Board for the policy and members change over time, how do we orient and train new leaders?
