Abuse Prevention

North Park has an active child abuse prevention policy that seeks to protect children from inappropriate treatment, and to guard volunteers and others in the church from false accusation.

All workers are required to be members of North Park Baptist Church. That allows opportunity for leaders in the church to get to know people prior to granting permission to serve in children's and youth ministries.

Systems in place include policies affecting selection and screening of workers, supervision of ministries, and a report and response plan.

Procedures include an open room policy meaning windows have been installed in classroom doors. Ministry coordinators serve in the class areas or periodically observe classrooms without notice.

Church-wide training and awareness seminars are held periodically for adults and teens.
