The Safe Spaces Ministry Team supports communities of faith in ensuring safe spaces for children and adults to experience the abiding love of God. Led by Chair Reverend Terry Carty, the Team partners with congregations to ensure that policies and procedures are developed, reviewed, appropriately presented for members of the Tennessee-Western Kentucky Annual Conference. The Board of Ordained Ministry work collaboratively to guide this vital ministry.

Conference Response Team –  members are trained advocates who provide care and pastoral support for both those experiencing situations requiring a trained advocate as well as those accused of perpetrating situations that would require a trained advocate. The role of the Conference Response Team is one of care-giving, not investigation. Conference Response Team Coordinator –  Rev.
