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