Providing safety and protection for the children in our care

At FBC Murphy, we care deeply for our children and students, it is our responsibility to provide a safe, fun, and nurturing environment for all children and students in the classrooms, during special events, camps, and retreats. For us to provide the best care and protection for our children and students we are following Ministry Safe’s 5-part strategy for their protection, and your protection as a leader or teacher.  Through this process, everyone who is already serving and those who plan to work with children and students (i.e., classrooms, Summerific Fun, camps, retreats, mission trips, etc.) will go through this process (Background check, sexual abuse awareness training, reference check, application, and interview). 

Please know that FBC Murphy has an expectation that every deacon, teacher, or anyone who leads a ministry, group, or committee in our church, goes through Ministry Safe Sexual Abuse Awareness Training and a Background Check.

We are called to serve with care and excellence as we share God’s word and lead by example. Part of our strategy to provide this essential care is to follow the five-part strategy through Ministry Safe.
