We believe that Child Protection is a Great Commission issue, because children should be able to hear the gospel and grow in discipleship in an environment unhindered by abuse. Furthermore, Scripture enjoins believers to reflect the character of God by caring for the vulnerable, serving with integrity, and stewarding resources responsibly.
The Evangelical Council for Abuse Prevention was created in 2019 to provide awareness, accreditation, and resources in order to help Christian organizations that serve kids protect the vulnerable in ministry.
There is an important role for other providers to support this mission. From training providers, background check companies, response and investigation teams, as well as care and counseling for victims of abuse. ECAP seeks to come alongside those organizations by helping ministries that serve children know how to prevent abuse and keep kids safe. ECAP is a membership-based accreditation organization committed to supporting ministries in creating safe environments for kids.
To Support Christian Ministries In Child Protection And Abuse Prevention Through Awareness, Accreditation, And Resources.
That Christian Ministries Would Be Safe Places For Children And Youth To Hear The Gospel, Grow In Discipleship, And That Spiritual Formation Would Take Place Unhindered By Abuse.
