Child Protection Policy Workshop 

Following an affirmative vote on the amendment from General Assembly, each council of the PC(USA) is required to have a Child Protection Policy.  This workshop is intended to assist congregational leaders in understanding the need for and developing their own Child Protection Policies.  This event is intended for any and all congregational leaders who have responsibility for developing their congregation's policy, or work with those who do so.

Our leader for this event, Dr. Rebecca Davis, is Assistant Professor of Religion at Presbyterian College.  Becky has long had a passion for education and child advocacy.  She was the organizing chair of the Presbyterian Child Advocacy Network and has served on the staff of the Children's Defense Fund in Washington, DC.  Becky has served the church as pastor and educator for over 25 years.  This presbytery is not new to Becky as her home church is Bates Memorial Presbyterian Church in Huntington.

There is no cost for the event (other than lunch on your own); however, it is important that participants register so that we know how many to expect.  To register, please click the link below or call the Presbytery of West Virginia at 304-744-7634.  Please register no later than September 1, 2016.
