Equipping our churches to keep children safe



We encourage all our local churches to employ their own NazSafe polices to ensure children's safety.

NazSafe District Application

NazSafe Reminders:

Did you know...

  • Your church needs to review your NazSafe policy every two years
    (at a minimum) - every year is ideal. 

  • Background checks must be repeated. The frequency of repetition is up to each church. Some churches elect to have them done annually, some elect to do them every two years with the training, and some elect to follow the state standard which is one year, then two years, then four years, and then six years. The choice is up to your church. However, "one and done" isn't an option.

  • When transferring to another church (even if the church is on the East Ohio District), your NazSafe does not transfer with you. It must be started again.

  • You may access application and other forms by going to
