The Pennsylvania Child Protective Services Law that was signed into law Oct. 22, 2014, is something that all churches and ministries should have on their list of things to review and implement.
With this new Pennsylvania State law going into effect Jan. 1, 2015, the need for legal advice has become apparent with the number of questions and concerns that have circulated among churches and their leaders.
We have included a few documents that may help assist in the questions and concerns you may have as a ministry, but ultimately we advise you seek legal counsel on this matter as it is a PA State law, and only a licensed PA attorney can provide clear and specific guidance on these matters.
Keep checking back to our website over the next few weeks and months as we anticipate new information to be available, as well as possibly videos, podcast, or seminars that may be available for those interested on this important matter.
