Policy Affirmation Summary Statement
Ministry Protection Policy
We will have a minimum of two approved adults (one must be over 21) at all functions for children, youth or disabled adults. The maximum ratio of child to adult is 10:1.
Children in 4th grade and below must only be released to a parent or guardian.
Public access bathrooms for 4th grade and below will utilize an approved adult as a monitor. If assistance is required, an approved adult will lead the child to the nursery where other approved adults are also present.
We never physically discipline anyone. Restraint is only used when harm or damage would occur. Abusive speech is never acceptable. Never touch a person’s private area except when necessary, as in the case of changing a diaper.
We avoid any appearance of impropriety – such as sitting older children on laps, kissing, back rubs, full hugs, etc.
One on one meetings are always in public places with the full approval and knowledge of parents prior to the meeting.
We immediately report suspected or known abuse to the state authorities and our ministry supervisor. This includes behavior that just doesn’t feel right. If you are unsure, ask. If we see abuse, we intervene to stop it. We don’t talk to others in the church or in the community about these details so that investigations are not compromised.
We report any violations of this policy to our ministry supervisor as soon as possible.
I have read, agree to, and will abide by the BSLC Child Protection Policy.
