Safeguarding Online

 We are excited to announce that effective October 15, 2017, all safeguarding training may be done online!  

The Diocese of Northwest Texas is committed to fostering communities where people can explore their faith, exercise their ministries, and live out their vocations in safe and healthy settings. We are committed to keeping everyone safe, especially our children and youth.  In order to better accomplish this, the Executive Council has amended our Policy for Protection of Children and Youth, authorizing all training in these areas to be done either online or in person at an onsite training session. All persons - lay and clergy - who work with children and youth and those who oversee them (including vestries), must complete the Safeguarding God's Children training. Clergy are also required to complete the Safeguarding God's People modules.

According to the Church Pension Group who oversees the Safeguarding programs, Safeguarding Online has been developed in response to the requests from Episcopal Church clergy and lay leaders for more flexible, easy-to-access, and cost-effective training.

Safeguarding Online provides training in short, focused courses that can normally be completed in 30-45 minutes per course. These courses can be taken from any location where a high-speed Internet connection is available.

The new user "self-enrollment" information will be in the packets at diocesan convention with instructions and helpful guides to help as we move to this new form of training.  All safeguarding training must be renewed every three years.  We will still offer on-sight training if it is requested.  Once this new safeguarding information is disseminated at convention, the information will be downloaded to our website.
