Safe Church

The goal of Safe Church is to build and sustain communities of faith that lead to a deepening trust and faith in Jesus Christ and with each other. Our goal is to help by offering education and training in the prevention of sexual exploitation, child abuse, harassment.

Our new Safe Church online training and background check system is now available for use! The Safe Church website we previously used is no longer valid, as our diocese has now transitioned to the online services offered by the wider church. If you need training, please contact your congregation's administrator, who will provide log-in information for you to use. 

If you have questions or if you would like to schedule an in-person training, please contact the Rev. Canon Andrea McMillin, Canon to the Ordinary, at, or (916) 442-6918, ext. 214.
