If our church doesn’t have WiFi, where can we hold online training?
It may be that participants meet in a public place such as coffee shop that has wireless internet or a library or it might be in a person’s home however it is important that Safe Ministry practises are implemented for this role.
We have a framework set out for this in the resource pack online at https://safeministry.training/local-safe-ministry-online-assistant/
Do I need to help people complete the online course as an Online Assistant?
The training is provided online. The online assistant enables participants to access the training and navigate their way around, book into/attend the webinar and assist participants to retrieve their certificate.
The Online Assistant role is not a training role in any capacity.
Can a Safe Ministry Representative also be the Online Assistant?
Yes this is absolutely fine and we greatly appreciate you taking on both roles!
How does the Senior Minister appoint an Online Assistant?
The Online Assistant reports to the Safe Ministry Representative in the local church and so they may be involved in the selection, recruitment and appointment on the Senior Ministers behalf however, he will need to be involved in the decision.
As it is an entirely local appointment, it requires no paperwork or notifying of the ODSM.
