Preschoolers, children, and students are a vital, but dependent, part of our churches. It is the desire of the State Convention of Baptists in Indiana (SCBI) to provide well-defined security policies creating a hedge of protection for those entrusted in our care. Therefore, SCBI requires the following application be completed by all leadership in any position involving the supervision of participants at camps, retreats, and events sponsored by SCBI. This will help provide a safe and secure environment for all participants in this ministry.

As part of this process, you will verify that your church has an ongoing child protection program (minimum of criminal history report for Indiana current within three years) in place for background checks and protection against child abuse and that program is being enforced. We can provide your church with information to assist in establishing Safety and Security policies. We also offer our ministry specialist to train and equip leaders in your church to enforce the policies. Please contact our office for further assistance.

We understand the confidential nature of this information. All information is kept securely.
