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.

  1. It’s good to be transparent! Glad to see you’re taking sensible precautions to avoid any unnecessary questions. It is good that you don’t want anything to get in the way of your ministry.
