Pilgrim Community Church has been partnering with MinistrySafe since 2020 to develop and implement safe church practices for our ministry. Below you will find more information about MinistrySafe and some of its key features as well as a copy of our ministry policy.

What is MinistrySafe?

Student Safety System

All volunteers and staff are screened before they serve at the church. This includes sexual abuse awareness training.

Volunteers must attend services for six months to be eligible to serve children.

All potential volunteers and staff undergo a criminal background check.

Reporting Abuse or Suspicions of Abuse

We report all suspected or alleged abuse or neglect of children to the Fairfax County CPS Emergency Response Hotline:


Safety Procedures

We enforce that there be at least two trained and screened adults to supervise at all times.

We maintain a healthy student to adult ration at all meetings.

We follow the rules and guidelines as stated by our ministry policy.
