Every worker who serves in our Family Ministries has gone through our membership process, is a part of a small group where they seek to be held accountable by others in this church body, and has had a criminal background check, undergone child sexual abuse awareness training, and had a personal safety screening.
Crossway Bible Church has a zero tolerance for abuse in ministry programs and ministry activities. It is the responsibility of every staff member and volunteer at Crossway Bible Church to act in the best interest of all children in every program. In the event a staff member, volunteer, or ministry participant observes any inappropriate behaviors (i.e. policy violations, neglectful supervision, poor role-modeling, etc.) or suspected abuse or neglect (physical, emotional, or sexual) it is that individual’s responsibility to immediately report those observations.
At every stage of the investigative process, Crossway Bible Church will work on a need-to-know basis, keeping the circle as tight as possible in order to preserve the privacy of the victim(s) and accused and their families.
