Safe Gatherings updated its training course last fall to address the challenges and best practices when conducting online ministry.

The module was available to currently approved users for 90 days, and it is now included as part of the Safe Gatherings training. We heard a lot of feedback from people who did not have a chance to review the module. So, we are happy to announce that we are providing the module again, available until February 20, 2021.

The module discusses abuse prevention considerations for conducting online meetings, technology challenges and solutions, boundary awareness situations in terms of virtual ministry, and more.

All currently approved applicants can review the new material by logging in to their Safe Gatherings account.

If your organization is not already using Safe Gatherings, let us help you get started. Safe Gatherings is an online abuse prevention program that screens and trains staff and volunteers to help protect children, youth and vulnerable adults. With Safe Gatherings, there are no annual or subscription costs—only a per-applicant fee. Have staff and volunteers ready when your doors open!
