WHAT IS DARKNESS TO LIGHT’S STEWARDS OF CHILDREN®?
Using the 5 Steps to Protecting Our Children™ as a framework, Stewards of Children® is a two-hour training that teaches adults practical actions to prevent child sexual abuse or intervene if abuse is suspected. Featuring compelling and engaging content to motivate participants, the program is designed for parents, concerned individuals, and any adult that works with children and/or youth and their families.
Stewards of Children® features video content of survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced it’s immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. It also highlights experts who work with children and families and confront abuse on a daily basis.
Protecting children from sexual abuse is an adult responsibility. However, sometimes adults have simply lacked prevention knowledge, or not had the awareness to recognize signs. Prevention training for adults creates a culture of awareness and safety. It gives people the skills to create safer environments. It makes them more willing to intervene in unsafe behaviors by adults with children. Is your church equipped with the knowledge and awareness to keep children safe?
Missouri Baptist Children’s Home is now offering this training to churches, schools, organizations, and communities. We have certified facilitators around the state that would love to come to your church and facilitate this very important training.
