FUMC Adopts MinistrySafe Program!

The First United Methodist Church of Coppell (FUMC), in-cooperation with the North Texas Conference (NTC), has adopted the MinistrySafe Program and is in the process of implementing it as a measure to prevent child sexual abuse. This program implements methods for increasing volunteer awareness regarding sexual abuse of children when they participate in FUMC programs.

What Is MinistrySafe?

MinistrySafe Abuse and Prevention Systems provide Sexual Abuse Awareness Training (live and online) to assist child care entities and organizations in the design and implementation of safety systems which reduce the risk of sexual abuse.

Who Does MinistrySafe Protect?

MinistrySafe is designed and implemented in the NTC to help keep the people and our churches safe.  MinistrySafe will provide an improved comprehensive program to ensure all children, youth and vulnerable persons have a safe haven, and that all of our churches are a place of sacred trust and security.

All volunteers working with children, youth or vulnerable persons are required to complete the MinistrySafe Training. Please download both the policies/ procedures and the application that are listed below. Return completed forms to the church office.
