Safe Sanctuaries Video: Best Practices

We are the church, which means we want to offer grace, peace and acceptance to all people, and it is vital that we Create healthy boundaries and accountability in our congregations. How does adopting Best Practices of Safe Sanctuaries® work to protect those who are most vulnerable from abuse? This short video will introduce this Safe Sanctuaries®, opening up conversation for small groups, during training, and in congregational gatherings.


Safe Sanctuaries® is a “social structure that is consistent with the gospel” (¶122) allowing our sanctuaries, classrooms, mission encounters, camps and retreats, and all spaces where we gather to worship and serve God to be places of trust. These videos may be used as a series to introduce the more difficult aspects of Safe Sanctuaries®, individually to open up conversations in small groups or during training, and as a way to share information with the congregation as a reminder or in the midst of a crisis.
