Safe Sanctuaries Book Forms

The Safe Sanctuaries Book is a great resource for all churches. We highly recommend that you have this book in your church library or resource center. In the back of the book are several forms for assistance in your Safe Sanctuaries Policy. We have these forms here online in word document format (.doc) with permissions from Discipleship Resources. These forms and others are available as reproducible copies in the book, Safe Sanctuaries, Reducing the Risk of Child Abuse in the Church, Joy Thornburg Melton, Copyright © 1998 Discipleship Resources.
