Nazarene Safe

The Church of the Nazarene is committed to the safety and protection of our children. Every local church should have a Child Protection Policy. In addition to the documents below, a tremendous amount of resources are available at "Every pastor has received information that is important for the establishment of a system in place to provide excellent protection for our children. We urge everyone to make this an important priority, encourages the Virginia District Advisory Board.
