How To Improve Safety And Security In Your Kids Ministry

One of the greatest needs and focuses of any Kids Ministry should be that of safety and security.  After all, we are entrusted with the most precious lives that mean the world to every parent who drops them off in our care.  If we do not do our due diligence in providing a safe a secure environment for the children, then we are not demonstrating the value that we claim to place on them.
Many of you are aware of my friends at KidCheck.  Well, they have developed a powerful child safety video and guide for organizations caring for children.  These tools are designed to provide actionable, specific best practices and suggestions that can easily be put into practice to improve child safety and minimize any possible safety and security issues.
The video “Improving Child Safety in Your Organization” and companion “Child Safety and Security” guide discuss the leading concerns around child safety to help organizations create a safe environment for the children in their care.
Topics include:
  • Creating a Security Team
  • Securing Your Facility
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Volunteer/Staff Policies
  • Emergency Situations
  • General Childcare Safety

Here is the best part:  they are providing it to you for FREE!  All you have to do is click on the video below and watch it yourself.  You’ll be glad you did.

Powerful Video – “This Time” (Based On A True Story)

Most of you who read my blog often will know I am a huge fan of the music of John Elefante (the former lead singer of the rock group, Kansas). Having followed his career since the mid-80s, it has been a pleasure as I have become friends with him the last few years. He is an incredible musician, singer, producer – but an amazing man of God as well.

I will never forget when he sent me the original demo to the song, “This Time.” I was blown away and moved to tears when I heard the song for the first time. It was a song he had just written that chronicled the TRUE STORY of his daughter, Sami, being saved from abortion. Her thirteen year old birth mother was moments away from aborting her when she knew that God was speaking to her to “get up” and get out of that abortion clinic. God had plans for the little girl she was carrying. Thankfully, Sami’s birth mom did not go through with the abortion – and John and his wife ended up being the adoptive parents.

John has just released the official music video for the song today. Please watch this video and pass it on to others. Who knows how many young women will be moved by the message behind this video/story. If only one child is saved from being aborted as a result of this video, it will be worth it. I believe you will be moved as you watch “This Time.”
