Parkway developed this policy not because of a lack of trust in workers, but instead, to ensure the safety of children and youth at events sponsored by Parkway and to protect our children, youth, workers, employees, volunteers and the entire church body. Parkway recognizes the need to have a formal, written policy with procedures in place (1) to help prevent the opportunity for the occurrence and/or the appearance of abuse of children and youth and (2) to help protect workers from false accusations and/or suspicions. The existence of these policies and procedures create a status of Safe Sanctuary Certification for Parkway. Careful and confidential documentation is essential to show compliance with policies, to verify information as needed, and to have an accurate record in the case of an incident.
