At BFC, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our children and youth. We do this by asking all our volunteers and employees to complete a screening process, attend training classes, and to undergo criminal background checks. We then provide them with practical and protective policies that they can implement while working with our youngest and most vulnerable population.
The General Church of the Nazarene
“The Church of the Nazarene has adopted a zero tolerance policy for sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior with minors. All workers, leaders, and pastoral staff are to be above reproach in their conduct and to act in the best interest of others. This requires not only that they themselves refrain from engaging in any abusive or suspicious behavior involving minors; they will also be required to report without delay to the proper authorities anyone seen engaging in such behavior.”
