Welcome to the basic Safe Sanctuary course that is required for all persons seeking to be licensed, commissioned, or ordained for ministry in the Nashville Episcopal Area of The United Methodist Church. This is an essential course for anyone who is responsible for keeping ministry with children, youth, and/or vulnerable persons safe from harm. The policies and procedures discussed will help provide the local church leader with the tools and information to create, maintain, train, and update the Safe Sanctuary Policy and Procedures for the local church setting.
