Child and Youth Protection Training

CitySalt is affiliated with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel and committed to providing a positive, safe, and enjoyable ministry experience for kids. It is our privilege to care for kids by working to create a safe and nurturing environment that fosters spiritual, emotional, and physical health for all participants. This includes promoting best practices and protection for all staff and volunteers from unwarranted accusations.  

training Videos (1-4)

The Foursquare Church created this four-session video training series for use in congregations and ministries with one hope: to prevent the maltreatment of children and youth so they can mature in personal faith in Christ without the wounds of abuse in their lives.

Please watch the four 20-minute training videos as part of completing the Kids Ministry Commitment expectation. *We do not suggest viewing the videos with children present.  The topics discussed are serious and would equate to an approximate PG-13 rating.
