Membership Tiers

Ministry member categories are designed for entry-level pre-accredited child/youth serving ministries. After an organization attains accreditation status, they are “graduated” out of this membership type and into a new and public membership status. These membership types are designed to serve and support organizations that either want to benefit from ECAP membership and tap into resources from ECAP or Affiliates. Accreditation is not required for these “private” organizations but we hope to encourage them towards compliance. 

Note: Member ministries must affirm ECAP’s Statement of Faith or not hold views contrary and must directly provide programs for children/youth. 

Standard Membership

$325 / year

Small to mid-sized organizations that serve children/youth. These organizations range in size, scope, and complexity. This membership type is a good entry-level membership option for ministries that plan to DIY in building their child protection program. This is a good membership type for organizations that plan to take several years in working toward accreditation.


Premium Membership

National Membership

As an advocate for abuse victims in the church, I've seen a lot of bungled situations and even some criminal cover-ups. What ECAP offers is a practical solution. Not only will ECAP help your organization meet safety standards, but they provide objective third-party accountability. So, it won't be just your elders, or board of directors, or buddies from seminary saying you're meeting safety standards, but an impartial non-profit passionate about protecting kids and honoring Jesus Christ.

The evangelical church has long since needed standards for a safe children's ministry . ECAP not only has provided that for us, but it's willing to show up at your door, help you think about the stewardship of your children, and help make your church a secure place for your children. It's been a delight to work with the team at ECAP, and I look forward to seeing what God will do in the days ahead through this ministry.
