First Orlando has SAFE policies and procedures that have been developed to prevent intentional and unintentional harm happening to children and students as they participate in programs at First Orlando and any of our campuses. In our policies and procedures you will see the term First Orlando, however, this term encompasses all participating campuses in the First Orlando organization, including Horizon West Church, Evolve Church, First Orlando Campus Hispano, and First Orlando Campus Brasileiro.
The Bible clearly defines the innate value of children and God’s heart for protecting the vulnerable. Believing that children are image bearers of God and our sacred trust, First Orlando intends to provide a nurturing and dynamic environment that will foster a child’s Christian faith. We see Jesus’ approach to children when he valued their participation in his teaching and helpfulness in His ministry.
All First Orlando campuses maintain a Zero Tolerance approach to all forms of child abuse. We take the care of children and students seriously and are fully committed to uphold the policies and procedures that have been developed to prevent intentional or unintentional harm from happening to children and students in our care.
First Orlando is committed to protecting our kids and students from abuse. We believe that happens through knowledge and awareness about the different kinds of abuse. Abuse is a spiritual and moral violation of God’s law and character, and the Bible is abundantly clear about child abuse of any kind.
