Our Safety Standards for Children
Safety is our number one priority when it comes to caring for your child. For that reason we are part of a program called MinistrySafe. MinistrySafe was created by legal professionals who are sexual abuse experts. After decades of litigating sexual abuse cases, Gregory Love and Kimberlee Norris founded MinistrySafe to help ministries meet legal standards of care and reduce the risk of sexual abuse by creating preventative measures tailored to fit the needs of churches, camps and ministry programs.
Each person who serves with children (ages birth-17) must submit to a child protection training process, screening, and a background check and must also be an active member of Liberty Baptist Church. Each program will be monitored continuously by our administrators. Liberty Baptist Church strives to remain diligent in the care and safety of your child. For more information about our program, please contact the church office by email at email@example.com or the VBS director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
