1. Follow the Asbury UMC Child & Youth Protection Policy, including the “Two Person/Open Door rule”:

It is our goal that at least two (2) unrelated individuals 18 and older or at least 1 individual 18 and older with a supervised minor at least 14 years of age are required at all child and youth church sponsored activities. Activities are to be conducted in areas that minimize opportunity for secrecy and isolation.

In the event that only one (1) individual 18 and older is present there should be no fewer than two (2) children or youth with the individual. In this instance, doors without windows to the classroom must remain open and any windows must have clear view into the classroom.

If only one (1) individual 18 and older and one (1) child or youth are present, then immediately contact the Children’s Ministry Director or ministry leader to resolve any one-on-one situations.

2. Follow the Incident Reporting Guidelines, as detailed in the AUMC Child & Youth Protection Policy.

3. Endeavor to keep all children, youth, and adults, including myself, out of questionable situations.
