Ministry leaders and staff are invited to attend a church safety and sexual abuse awareness training webinar led by MinistrySafe and hosted online by Denver Seminary on April 9 from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
The training will address common misconceptions, offender characteristics, offenders’ “grooming process,” common grooming behaviors, indicators and impact of abuse, peer sexual abuse, and reporting requirements.
MinistrySafe works to help ministries meet the legal standards of care and reduce the risk of sexual abuse litigation. The training will be led by Kimberlee Norris, director and co-founder of MinistrySafe. Norris is a sexual abuse trial attorney, who represents victims of abuse and provides crisis management and allegation response counsel to child-serving organizations.
This training is vital for church staff, volunteers, pastors, lay leaders, students, and ministry professionals, so they are better equipped to protect children in their care.
The online event is free and open to the public. Learn more and register at: DenverSeminary.edu/
