Most youth workers will admit that they dont spend a lot of time thinking about safety in their youth ministry.

Patricia Chadwick5 Stars Out Of 5August 26, 2008Patricia ChadwickI haven't been involved in Youth Ministry in several years, and back when I was, we just didn't think as much about the threat of being sued. Sure, we wanted our kids safe, but if an accident occurred, there was virtually no threat of legal action. When I read this book, it really opened my eyes as to the thought that needs to be put in to safety issues when you are dealing with youth in today's world. The author gives tons of advice on how to prevent things from going wrong and also gives pointers how to deal with accidents that do happen.Every youth leader should read this book!
