ABUSE PROTECTION RESOURCES
In light of recent news in the Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond and of our long standing commitment to providing safe places of worship we are grateful that the Church of the Nazarene insists on a ZERO TOLERANCE policy regarding children and youth sexual abuse. Please point your browser to this NazSafe link for training materials and resources for your local church. Pastors, Board Members, and Laypeople: thank you for making the providing of safe places for worship your priority.
“Have you implemented a written sexual abuse protection policy on your church?” All Virginia District Nazarene Churches are required to have one.
If your church has a written policy, please forward it to the DRC by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your church needs to create a policy, please contact Greg Norwood at email@example.com to get help & instructions as needed.
Please review the Nazarene Safe Guidelines Booklet for more details.
