Why bother doing training?

Getting things done is hard and exhausting.

Whether it’s sending those emails, or finishing off that list of things to fix around the house, it seems like time is never in your favour. And once you find a time when you’re not busy, it can be hard to concentrate or even find the motivation to do the things you want to do.

And then your pastor keeps bugging you about the safe ministry training you’ve been meaning to do for months. You know that it’s worth doing; the safety of children and vulnerable people is something you care about. But remembering to do it, or even finding the time to watch those long and boring videos is tough.

We at Safe Ministry Check know exactly how you feel. That’s why we developed our our training to be efficient, engaging, and effective. And while we could spend a whole blog talking about how you’ll do our training in under an hour, what we want to talk about is why your pastor keeps encouraging you about doing the training.

It’s because they LOVE and care deeply about safe ministry.

Your church staff team and elders want to make safe ministry a priority. How do we know? Because they have taken the time and energy to do something about it. Sadly, there are a lot of churches out there that aren’t doing what’s required by the law, let alone their duty of care, for the sake of keeping their people safe. But your church takes safety so seriously that they have researched and implemented our system in an attempt to help your whole church be equipped and on board for safe ministry.

It’s probably worth remembering that safe ministry isn’t just about protecting kids. It’s about making sure that everyone in your church is loved and looked after, especially those who are vulnerable around you. Keeping up to date with your training is going to help you and your church love everyone.

So do you love safe ministry like your church does? Why not finish your training off now? We guarantee it won’t take long!
