The Southeastern District, LCMS has partnered with MinistrySafe® to offer Not Even One, an initiative to train and equip all who serve in SED schools and congregations to better recognize the signs of Child Sexual Abuse.  The statistics are troubling; one in four girls and one in six boys in the U.S. are abused before the age of eighteen.  SED schools and congregations are entrusted with the care and nurture of children and teens and, as such, are uniquely positioned to help protect children by recognizing common signs of abuse and how to appropriately respond.
 
To that end, the SED is pleased to provide child sexual abuse awareness training to all who serve in our schools and congregations, at no cost to the participant or the organization.  The ultimate goal is to have every staff member and volunteer serving in an educational or congregational ministry to complete the 90-minute, online training. 
 
To get started, please send an email to the Southeastern District, LCMS office indicating that you or your ministry wish to take part in this important training.  You will then receive a link to the training, as well as an access code.  If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call the SED office at (703) 971-9371.
