Ministry Safe

With frightening statistics growing in the news and community, Perimeter Church takes great measures to care for the children, youth and students ("participants") in our ministry programs.  We work hard to make our ministry programs for children and youth both excellent and SAFE. 
 
In order to help provide this safe environment, we have contracted with Ministry Safe.  Ministry Safe is a firm which provides training and a safety system in order to enhance our child protection practices and further equip our ministries to be aware of sexual predators. 
 
There are four steps to this safety system which we require staff members and volunteers working with participants to complete. 


Overview of the Perimeter Church Safety System
  • STEP ONE: Sexual Abuse Awareness Training
     

    In our nation today, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before reaching 18 years of age.  Two out of three child victims do not report sexual abuse until adulthood, if ever.

     

    As a parent, no one will influence your child like you do.  What can you do to protect your child from sexual assault?

     

    This two-hour training is presented by Kimberlee Norris, sexual abuse attorney, litigator, and Director of MinistrySafe.  With 30 years experience litigating child sexual abuse cases, Norris uses her experience and expertise to equip parents, churches and ministry professionals to better protect children from sexual abuse.  Norris has trained over 500,000 ministry staff members, volunteers, and parents since 2005.
