Knowing that a safe environment is fundamental to all as we grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and others, FUMC Hurst takes our responsibility to care for children, students, and vulnerable adults (“Protected Persons”) very seriously. Following the guidelines of the Central Texas Conference, our policies are intended to create a safe environment for children, students, and vulnerable adults, protecting them, the adults who work with them, and the mission of this church. We look forward to working with you!

FUMC Hurst policies and procedures require that:

This training must be renewed every two years in order to continue working with Protected Persons.
Workers are required to complete our Screening Process, which requires a Worker to:
Workers are required to review the policies contained in the manual and sign the last page indicating that he or she has read and understood the material, and agrees to comply with policy requirements. (CLICK HERE to download the manual.)
Leaders for outside groups/organizations bringing protected persons onto the campus of FUMC Hurst must read and review the policies contained in the MinistrySafe Policies and Procedures Manual for Outside Groups and sign the last page indicating that they have read and understand the material, and agree to comply with policy requirements.
Our church requires that all Workers in ministries that involve Protected Persons undergo a criminal background check. Depending upon the position, differing levels or intensity of the background check may be required. This will be repeated every four years.
