Child Abuse Prevention/Mandated Reporting
Protocol for Churches Regarding Sex Offenders
This is an issue no church or organized body wants to deal with but is forced to deal with on occasion. Daily, churches are forced to find the proper balance between welcoming all sinners who have reportedly turned from their sins and protecting its members, especially the youngest of them.
Please note, however, that in this world some actions carry lifelong consequences. If your church is deciding on how to proceed with accepting a registered or alleged sex offender into your congregation, please contact the Risk Management department immediately.
