The CRCNA is committed to keeping children safe. We believe that all children have a right to be safe at all times, and that all children have equal rights to protection from all forms of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. With this in mind, the Council of Delegates adopted a "Child Safeguarding Policy" in February 2022. This policy provides a framework to ensure that children are safe from abuse and exploitation by those in positions of power and trust in CRCNA ministries.
The full policy is attached below. We encourage congregations to review it and think about how they can adopt and adapt it for their local context.
We love your comments! Thank you for helping us uphold the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.
