Safe Gatherings has updated its training course to address the challenges of online ministry in regard to abuse prevention.

Over the past six months, churches and organizations have been forced to make major changes to the way they operate because of COVID-19, and that includes reaching children and youth via online ministry. This new training module discusses basic abuse prevention guidelines for conducting online meetings, technology challenges and solutions, boundary awareness in terms of virtual ministry, and more.

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