Safe Church Training and Policies

The goal of Safe Church is to offer education and training in the prevention of sexual exploitation, child abuse, harassment. 

Safe Church training and the background check is done online. If you need training, please contact your congregation’s administrator, who will provide log-in information for you to use.  

If you have questions or if you would like to schedule an in-person training, please contact the Rev. Canon Andrea McMillin, Canon to the Ordinary, at andrea@norcalepiscopal.org, or (916) 442-6918, ext. 214. 

Anyone may contact the diocesan intake officer to report concerns about the behavior of a member of a clergyperson.  This initiates a process, when appropriate, to hold clergy accountable for their behavior. 

The Rev. Canon Andrea McMillin, Canon to the Ordinary, is the intake officer for the diocese.  

The intake officer will: 

  • Listen with respect 
  • Offer pastoral care and response 
  • Create a written report regarding the concern(s) presented 
  • Answer questions about the process  

Please note: Members of the clergy are REQUIRED to report to the intake officer anything that may constitute an offense and to cooperate with the clergy disciplinary process.
