PUBLIC STATEMENT OF TRI-CITY BAPTIST CHURCH
REGARDING INVESTIGATION OF CHURCH MEMBER
(name withheld to protect privacy)
November 6, 2019
As a church, we are always saddened when any of our members are accused of breaking the law. When an allegation involves inappropriate conduct toward a child, our organization immediately removes that individual from any contact with children, and we full cooperate with parents, state officials, and law enforcement. We believe that if children are safe anywhere, they should be safe at church.
Tri-City Baptist Church does not cover-up abuse, and we have zero tolerance for child abuse in our ministry. We carefully interview and screen our employees and volunteers, and our leadership team works to maintain child protection policies based on best practices nationally and Colorado State law.
We believe that transparency, child safety, and accountability are essential for successful ministry, and we are fully committed to ministering to our children in a safe and responsible manner.
