In this day and age of child predators, and with so many victims of sexual abuse suffering in silnce within churches (conservatively speaking, at least 25% of people sitting in church during any gathering have experienced being sexually violated prior to the age of 18 (1), yet the vast majority of those survivors have NEVER disclosed to anyone), churches need to become educated on how best to protect and help. Church Protect is the most indepth training program of its kind in existance to day.
Integrating unique findings derived from over a decade's worth of clinically-based longitudinale research while working with well over 4000 incarcerated sex offenders in state prison (many of whom are pedophiles, designated as Sexually Violent Predators), this unique and insightful training provides the most comprehensive understanding of the mind, methods, and motives of the most dangerous of serial pedophiles... the predators that specifically select churches and other such organizations as their targets of opportunity... and helps those in attendance to meaningfully understand how best to help and support the survivors of sexual abuse in their midst.

Take a look for yourself...
Why should a church consider professional training?
Because there is simply too much at stake in terms of the safety of children and young people. And, it is simply too risky to leave your training up to those who have not worked professionally "behind bars" with sex offenders.
You need an expert who has spent years studying the minds and hearts of the sex offender, to ensure you understand how to properly assess who is vs. who is not safe to have within the walls of your church.

Not all Trainings are alike
Your ability to properly protect children and support survivors is dependent upon your level of training.
There is simply too much at stake to settle for "average" training, for that is exactly what the predator is counting on.
Far too many churches have relied upon"basic" trainings which simply focus on:
(1) background checks,
(2) training on screening and identifying potential predators with "red flag" behaviors,
(3) policies and procedures, and
(4) monitoring and oversight of compliance to ensure the safety of their church or organization...
only to discover all too late that a predator was still able to perpetrate with ease, leaving a trail of personal injury, shattered lives, and destruction it his path.
Is there a better level of training? Fortunately, the answer is a resounding "YES"! That training is at a level we refer to as the Gold Standard Level.
The following are the Levels of Training currently available on the market today. Church Protect has raised the bar for all other trainings, and is at the Gold Standard Level
Church Protect is an inovator in training and education
Here's just a sample...
During one of Church Protect's annual symposiums, Dave Drake (featured in the above promotional videos), shared his dramatic personal journey in the wake of discovering that a number of his children had been molested by the same Super Predator pastor.
Cyndi, a church secretary, sat down with Church Protect to publicly share for the first time the impact of being sexually abused as a young girl. She wanted to help pastors and family members understand the life-long impact of abuse, and why so many survivors remain silent despite faithfully attending church for years.
