“Safe Sanctuaries is an overt expression in making congregations safe places where children, youth and vulnerable adults may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith.”
In the 2007 session of Annual Conference, the Northwest Texas Conference adopted a Safe Sanctuaries Policy to protect our church leaders, our churches, and our communities. All local churches within the Northwest Texas Conference are recommended to have a Safe Sanctuaries Policy for their church by December 31, 2008.
