It is our intent, as the South Texas District, to create a safe environment for all children that we serve. It is necessary that every ministry creates and implements a child safety system including an active protection policy, screening process, criminal/sexual background checks, and awareness training.
The Nazarene Church has partnered with MinistrySafe to provide you with the tools you need to adopt and implement a safety program at your church! Visit NazareneSafe.org for more information.
REMEMBER - We are here to help you!
The Zero Tolerance Policy
The Church of the Nazarene has adopted a zero tolerance policy for sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior with minors. All workers, leaders, and pastoral staff are to be above reproach in their conduct and to act in the best interest of others. This requires not only that they themselves refrain from engaging in any abusive or suspicious behavior involving minors; they will also be required to report without delay to the proper authorities anyone seen engaging in such behavior.
