Safe Haven Policy


Safe Haven Policy

Anyone planning to serve in Knox's Youth or Children's Ministries must complete the Knox Safe Haven Policy.  If you do not already comply, read the Knox Safe Haven Policy (SHP), sign the Policy's Covenant Statement, complete a Volunteer Application form and attend a SHP training session.

You can pick up a copy of the Knox SHP from the sign-up tables or church office. Before attending a training session, read the policy and bring it with you to the session.

The SHP Training Sessions run approximately 30 minutes. If you need training contact the director for the program that is of interest to you.

If you are able to drive for a youth function, a Driver Information Form must be completed and returned along with a copy of your valid drivers license and a copy of your insurance card.
