What is the Mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church Related to Child/Minor Safety?
The Mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is to provide a safe, spiritual and abuse-free environment for every child who attends the Organization’s programs and activities.
What is the Purpose of the Seventh-day Adventist Church For Child/Minor Safety?
It is the purpose of the Seventh-day Adventist Church to prevent any form of child abuse, physical, emotional, or sexual and to protect employees and volunteers from false allegations. We work in partnership together with pastors, teachers, church leaders, children and parents to promote the welfare, health and development of children. Child protection is everyone’s responsibility. All children, whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, socio-economic status, religious belief and sexual identity have the right to protection from all forms of harm and abuse.
Zero tolerance of child abuse: Child abuse will not be tolerated by the Seventh-day Adventist church; neither will knowingly engage, directly or indirectly, anyone who poses a risk to children.
