Buncombe Street United Methodist Church is a spiritual community, which takes very seriously its responsibility to provide a safe and nurturing environment not only for children, youth, and vulnerable adults, but for everyone who participates in our ministries including volunteers, staff, and community partners. We do this through the implementation of a Safe Sanctuary Policy. As someone who is a participant, member, or community partner, we invite you to familiarize yourself with our policy and help us to implement these practices to create a community of care.
If you are interested in volunteering in a Buncombe Street UMC ministry that works directly with children, youth, and/or vulnerable adults, you will need to take several steps to become Safe Sanctuary Certified. To the right is a list of ministry areas and the Staff Ministry Leads that can assist you in any step of the certification process.
