Safe Sanctuaries Policy

Safe Sanctuaries Policy
  • Beginning in 1996, the North Georgia Conference called for all churches and related agencies to have a policy in place to protect our children, youth, and the adults who work with them.
  • This Child Safety Policy requires for all adults who work with children and youth to complete and Application from as well as agree to a Background Check, regardless of how long you have been a member or volunteered at that church.
  • The policy also calls for strict supervision/guidelines and participation in all events.
The North Georgia Conference has a policy that we adhere to. To view a copy of that policy, go to www.ngumc.org/youth/. We also require each church to comply. Please complete the Safe Sanctuary Abiding form and bring it with you to the Confirmation Retreat.
