In the Diocese of North Dakota, we participate in Online Safe Church Training Programs, offered by Praesidium. This training represents our strong ideals and teaching regarding the safety and protection of all those in our churches, and it helps us to implement the highest standards for abuse and exploitation prevention within our diocese.
The Diocese of North Dakota provides this online training to help congregations implement the commitment we have made to ensuring that our churches are safe places. It is the responsibility of each congregation and its leadership to make sure that all those who provide leadership, pastoral care, education or childcare in our congregations have this training.
We thank you for your dedication to keeping our churches safe.
In the love of Christ,
The Right Rev. Thomas C. Ely
Bishop Provisional of North Dakota
