Safe Sanctuary

Keller United Methodist Church takes safety measures in the selection and recruitment of those who work directly with children/youth, implements procedures in programs and events, and educates workers, helpers, and volunteers regarding the church Policy and state law.

How to become eligible to volunteer with children and youth:

1. Read the Safe Sanctuary Policy.
2. View the Safe Sanctuary Training Presentation.
3. Print and complete the Authorization for Information/Criminal Background Report, the Participation Covenant Statement and the Compliance with Attendance Policy Form and return all three signed documents to the church office. Forms are also available in the church office.
4. Have three references who have known you for at least three years, and are not related to you, submit either the Electronic Reference Form OR provide your references' names and e-mails or mailing addresses to Victoria Wilson and the church will e-mail the link or send paper forms for them to complete.

For more information about Safe Sanctuary at Keller UMC, contact Victoria Wilson or Kim Kuhlman.

Keller UMC incurs fees associated with the screening process. We respectfully ask that you click the button to pay $15 to offset these costs. However, if you are not able to pay, contact Victoria Wilson to discuss waiving this fee. Thank you for your commitment to the safety and spiritual growth of the children and youth of Keller UMC.
