Safe Ministry is an essential part in providing a safe environment at WWEC as we work together to grow God’s family.
At Wagga Wagga Evangelical Church one of the things that we are committed to is the care of all members of our church with the same love and care that God has for each of them. One of the ways we express that care is through our Safe Church Ministry policy and procedures. Like many other churches and organizations, we want to ensure that our leaders are well trained and that the programs we run are safe. We are aiming to minimize the risk of abuse, misconduct and the misuse of positional power. We desire to see that all people continue to be respected and valued in our Christian community.
Safe Ministry is an essential part in providing a safe environment at WWEC as we work together to grow God’s family. We want to be a community that shares Jesus’ love and concern for those who are most vulnerable. As part of that concern, it’s helpful for us all to be reminded of safe ministry practices as well as ensuring we’re all up to date with the latest changes in government legislation.
While we are a church family – brought together because of God’s love for us and our desire to love and serve him – we need to take into account the legal, management, and ethical responsibilities we have as a church. We do this as part of our commitment to serve others in the name of Jesus. We want to care for and protect others so that people may know the love God has for each one of us, expressed ultimately through his Son, Jesus.
