Three Foundational Tenets


Three Foundational Tenets

  1. Certification is a privilege; not a right.
  2. Certification does not give entitlement, even if you are certified; you are not automatically allowed to work with Youth. It is only one of the necessary steps. It does not mean the church must use someone.
  3. Certification is always tied back to the Local Church. A volunteer must attend an event under the umbrella or authority of a Local Church. In the new Local Church online process, the Local Church will initiate the certification process. In the new system; all volunteer certification is started by the Local Church Safe Sanctuaries coordinator (LCA). The LCA will need the volunteer(s)’ name and email address to start the process for both Conference and Local Church Certification.
