Subjects of Church Safety, Skip Masback – Video and Discussion Questions

Rev. Skip Masback talks about the scope of people in your church and youth ministry who would be subject to a church safety policy.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Who in your church/program will need to have background screenings and be trained? Paid staff, adult volunteers and teen volunteers/leaders (under 18 years of age) should all be considered.  Will the requirements be different for teen volunteers/leaders? How will the policy allow for flexibility based on level of involvement?
  2. Who in your church or program will be responsible for screening and training staff and volunteers and how will you do that?
  3. Who will be responsible for maintaining screening and training records and update screening and training as outlined by your policy?
