Sexual abuse is a growing problem, not just in the world, but in the Church. Zanesville Northside Church of the Nazarene has adopted a ZERO TOLERANCE Policy for sexual misconduct. NazareneSafe exists to equip local churches in enforcing that policy, and creating safe environments for God’s family. NazareneSafe, partnered with MinistrySafe, gives us the tools and resources to prevent child sexual abuse proactively.


Awareness Training

We can’t reduce a risk that we don’t understand. Equip employees and volunteers with facts to recognize the offender’s ‘grooming process.’ Send online trainings to ministry leaders, staff members, and volunteers.

Skillful Screening

Keeping the wolf out of the sheep pen. Utilize questions meant to elicit high-risk responses, and train screening employees to recognize high-risk indicators. Download and customize sample screening forms.

Policies & Procedures

Policies are what you do, not what you say you do. Policies must be rooted in the ‘grooming process’ and tailored to fit the specific programmatic needs of your ministry.

Background Checks

Checking past criminal records is an important screening element, but not a stand alone safety protocol, because less than 10% of abusers will encounter the criminal justice system. Use our Control Panel to order from seven levels of background checks.

Monitoring & Oversight

Ensure ongoing Safety System compliance through our Control Panel’s simple and efficient automation.
