Registration is now open for the Safe Church Abuse Prevention and Response training on Saturday, March 2 from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm at Waterloo CRC.
This year’s special guest will be Bev Sterk from Lynden, WA, who spoke passionately at Synod 2018 about abuse and what the denomination needs to do to prevent it. Additional speakers include Kathy Smith, adjunct professor of church polity at Calvin Seminary, and former crown attorney, Henry Van Drunen.
There will also be a presentation on the “Circle of Grace” Abuse Prevention program, a presentation on Cyber bullying (by the Waterloo Regional Police Department), and a presentation on Mental Health issues.
All ministry leaders (pastors, elders, deacons, youth leaders, safe church teams) are encouraged to attend! The cost is $35 and includes lunch.
