Missouri United Methodists affirm that all children, youth
and vulnerable adults have the right to safe sanctuary. Therefore, Missouri
United Methodists are determined to provide an environment in which these
persons are safe from neglect or abuse.
The provision of safe sanctuary applies to all staff and
volunteers, clergy or lay, who have direct or indirect contact with children or
youth in conference and/or district sponsored events.
The Safe Sanctuaries Certification Authority along with the
Missouri Conference Mission Council is responsible for the Safe Sanctuaries
policy and procedures. Each conference and/or district ministry involving
children, youth, or vulnerable adults follows these policy and procedures.
