One of our highest priorities is creating a safe environment on every SBC campus to ensure the protection of each child and adult who visits our church. We are continually updating our safeguards and procedures to give parents and families confidence in SBC’s care and professionalism in handling any potential concerns.
Here are some steps we’ve taken to protect our kids and vulnerable adults:
Our on-boarding process for all volunteers dealing with minors and vulnerable adults is extensive. You can view the process here.
To learn more about SBC’s process for handling and reporting any allegation of improper behavior, view this chart to see the steps we have established.
If you need to report an incident, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org to reach our committee who will walk you through the process.
SBC offers a Parent/Guardian Training video designed to give parents a basic understanding and awareness of child sexual abuse and the grooming process of abusers. The video is produced by Ministry Safe, a company created by legal professionals who are sexual abuse experts. To request a copy of this video training, click here.
SBC also has several support groups to support individuals and families who are dealing with the consequences of abuse and other challenges. View groups.
