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.
ECAP is an association-based organization that provides child safety accreditation and resources to ministries that serve kids. Alongside other providers, we hope to make ministry environments safe 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.
