The Global Methodist Church has entered into a multi-year agreement to provide every congregational member of the GM Church with access to an outstanding multi-faceted program to address child safety and protection in its provisional annual conferences and churches (including pre-schools and day cares, church schools, camps and other entities operated by such churches). The GM Church is partnering with MinistrySafe to oﬀer this comprehensive set of tools to the provisional annual conferences and congregational members of the GM Church.
The MinistrySafe program consists of a ﬁve-part safety system that GM Church entities may take advantage of at no cost. The 5-part safety system includes access to model policies and procedures, skillful screening, sexual abuse awareness training, and monitoring and oversight. You can read an information flyer here. The system also includes background checks; however, the initiating ministry must choose the level of background check that will be performed and pay the cost of each background check. The GM Church and its churches are receiving signiﬁcant discounts on the cost of each background check. Read this flyer for information about the eight categories of background checks available to GM Church congregations and related ministries at signiﬁcant discounts.
To learn more about the resources oﬀered by MinistrySafe through this partnership, go to www.ministrysafe.com/gmc. You can register your church and related ministries by selecting “Become a MinistrySafe Member” and then entering the discount code “GMC2023” when prompted.
MinistrySafe provides numerous videos to help you understand the unique dashboard created for your church and related entities. As soon as you become a MinistrySafe Member, which costs your church nothing, you immediately have access to all of the resources including the discounted pricing on background checks.
The GM Church strongly recommends that every member church take advantage of this signiﬁcant resource which is provided as one of the beneﬁts of being a member of the GM Church and which is paid for by the GM Church with general church connectional funding resources.
