If you’ve been volunteering or working with vulnerable populations for any amount of time, you most likely are familiar with the concept of two-deep leadership. Two-deep leadership, which ensures that there are at least two unrelated, non-cohabitating adults in classrooms, youth meetings or other activities, should be one of the foremost components of your church’s abuse prevention policy.
