The NEI District is committed to building NazareneSafe churches!
Sexual abuse is a growing problem, not just in the world, but in the Church. Statistics reveal that 1 in 3 girls, and 1 in 5 boys will be sexually abused by age 18. The Church of the Nazarene has adopted a ZERO TOLERANCE Policy for sexual misconduct, that must be enforced at the local church level.
NazareneSafe exists to equip local churches in enforcing that policy, and creating safe environments for God’s family. NazareneSafe is the toolbox to help you build a safe, protected church. Every NEI Church must become a NazareneSafe Church!
