The reality is, whether it’s a game of dodgeball in the church gym, or a rock climbing trip during a summer retreat, you have precious cargo in your care, and it’s your responsibility to make sure they return home safely and in one piece. Better Safe Than Sued is an essential guidebook for anyone in youth ministry—paid or volunteer, veteran or rookie. Along with questions to get you thinking about your own ministry context after each chapter, inside you’ll discover how you can make your ministry a safe place for students and leaders as you read about: • Safety while riding in buses, vans, and cars • Camps, retreats, and conferences • Selecting staff • Avoiding sexual misconduct • Establishing a No-Bully Zone • How to handle injuries, and much more Make sure your ministry is safe and that you’re protected so you never have to be the one saying, “I never took safety seriously until …”
