The reality is, whether it’s a game of dodgeball in the church gym, or a rock climbing trip during a summer retreat, you have precious cargo in your care, and it’s your responsibility to make sure they return home safely and in one piece.
Better Safe Than Sued is an essential guidebook for anyone in youth ministry—paid or volunteer, veteran or rookie.
