The members of University Presbyterian Church (the Church) are concerned with the safety, welfare, and protection of the children and youth- aged birth to 18 -years-old (Children) – who participate in the activities and programs of this Church. In addressing these concerns, the Church is adopting this policy (the Policy). This Policy is intended to discourage any form of abuse of Children while involved in Church activities and to provide a procedure for reporting any instances of alleged abuse. The Policy is not intended to: (i) supplant the efforts of parents and guardians and legal authorities in protecting children from abusive situations; (ii) provide a policy for pastoral care or sexual misconduct accusations involving only adults, or (iii) substitute for the Church’s employment policies and procedures.

The policy and associated forms can be accessed here:
