The Missouri District is partnering with MinistrySafe to launch the “Not Even One” initiative to better educate and equip the workers in our congregations and schools to recognize the signs of child sexual abuse and understand better the tendencies of child predators at a low cost to congregations and schools.
Sexual abuse of children is a “quiet” epidemic that is only occasionally brought to light when a sensational news story hits the press. The reality is that 1 in every 4 girls and 1 in every 6 boys in the United States are sexually molested before the age of 18. Ninety percent of the time, they are molested by someone they know and trust.
We want every staff person in every congregation and school in the Missouri District, to commit to helping protect children and ministries entrusted to your care.
