Child Safety

Much of my ministry and community involvement puts me in contact with children. As an adult (and a male) I take the responsibility of protecting (and encouraging the protection of) children very seriously. Read on to learn about my practices to preserve the safety and well-being of children.

Transparency

I have put this website together to let people know what I am up to. I do not want to hide or distort what I am about. I also maintain a public calendar to advertise events in which I participate.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please send me an email.


Education & Certification

Child Development

I have taken a few child development classes and have received training in the context of an after-school program, Child Evangelism Fellowship, and through tons of hands-on experience at Summer camps. I seek to gather more training through reading books and articles and interacting with others who work with children.

Protecting Student & Civil Rights in the Educational Environment

I took and passed the above named exam, which is a qualification for becoming a teacher in the state of Oregon. You may see my score report by downloading the following file.

Abuse Awareness Certification

I have acquired a certification in Abuse and Misconduct Awareness through http://www.sportdev.org. You may see my certificate by downloading the following file.

CPR/ First Aid Certification

On 9/4/2019 I completed training to earn my First Aid/ CPR certification through the American Red Cross. You may see my certificate by downloading the following file.


Accountability

I submit to background checks regularly, meet with advisers and mentors consistently, interact with people in public areas, and seek to involve other trusted people in my activities so that I do not find myself alone with children unnecessarily.
