At St. Luke's in May
St. Luke’s will host Safeguarding God’s People training on Saturday, May 7, from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. This event will be open to the diocese and space is limited, so sign up early!
Safeguarding God’s People (SGP) is a training program for the prevention of sexual exploitation in communities of faith. Training is designed to help participants understand the overt and the subtle, the intentional and unintentional, ways in which exploitation and harassment occur in church, school and institutional settings. The aim of the training is to prevent exploitation and harassment by making everyone more aware of her/his words, actions, and intentions as we engage together in ministry.
Who is required to be trained: All clergy, church employees, vestry members, lay pastoral care ministers (including Stephen Ministers), spiritual directors, eucharistic visitors, hospital visitors authorized by the church, leaders and facilitators of all adult programs and small group ministries, seminarians, interns and lay chaplains.
Training must be renewed every 5 years. Contact Megan Wyman with any questions or for help registering.
