Item description for Better Safe Than Sued: Keeping Your Students and Ministry Alive [With CD] (Youth Specialties) by Jack Crabtree...

For youth workers, volunteers, denominations and other leaders who want the youth retreat to end in the parking lot instead of the emergency room.

Publishers Description
Most youth workers will admit that they don t spend a lot of time thinking about safety in their youth ministry. Sure, they shout, Seat belts when the crew loads into the van, or they use the buddy system when at theme parks. But beyond that, they re mostly concerned with introducing students to Jesus. Nothing s wrong with looking after their spiritual well-being, but overlooking their safety can lead to pain and problems for you, your students, your church, or your community. 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. Along with questions to get you thinking about your own ministry context after each chapter, inside you ll discover how you can make your ministry a safe place for students and leaders as you read about: * Safety while riding in buses, vans, and cars * Camps, retreats, and conferences * Selecting staff * Avoiding sexual misconduct * Establishing a No-Bully Zone * How to handle injuries, and much more Make sure your ministry is safe and that you re protected so you never have to be the one saying, I never took safety seriously until "

Reviews - What do customers think about Better Safe Than Sued?

Essential Information for Anyone Involved in Youth Ministry  Oct 13, 2009
Working with adolescents can be a great joy, but there are a lot of risks that all too many churches and their youth leadership teams fail to consider. The author uses examples from his own ministry to demonstrate how lack of planning for the worst case can lead to serious problems and even tragic situations.

Even the most well-intentioned leaders need to read this book to be sure that they avoid turning fun-filled events into tragedies. Highly recommended for all staff.
A Must Read  Aug 26, 2008
I haven't been involved in Youth Ministry in several years, and back when I was, we just didn't think as much about the threat of being sued. Sure, we wanted our kids safe, but if an accident occurred, there was virtually no threat of legal action.

When I read this book, it really opened my eyes as to the thought that needs to be put in to safety issues when you are dealing with youth in today's world. The author gives tons of advice on how to prevent things from going wrong and also gives pointers how to deal with accidents that do happen.

Every youth leader should read this book!
