Our partner, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, has just released their new Caring Well Hiring Guide for churches under their Caring Well Initiative. Churches can use this free resource in the hiring process as a guard against abuse in the church.
Many churches want to hire well to prevent abuse in their churches, but are unsure where to begin.
- How can you develop hiring policies to better protect your most vulnerable members?
- What steps should be taken to screen staff or volunteers effectively?
This guide will help you get started!
Employment laws vary from state to state. While there are principles that apply to every church or ministry, each church will have to consider their specific context to best implement effective policies and procedures. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to making a church a safer place for children. This guide is designed to provide a starting point for church leaders who are working to implement effective hiring and screening policies to help prevent future abuse.
As a partner with The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, we are grateful for the opportunity to share this free resource with you! More information on ERLC can be found at their website here.
