Published Sep 2, 2017 at 4:00pm

The Church of Christ of Utica is hosting a child safety seminar Sept. 9 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 1330 Herkimer Road. 

The seminar will be presented by Jimmy Hinton, Church Protect founder and minister. It is a non-profit ministry that provides specialized training in the prevention and detection of child sexual abuse within churches.

After discovering that his father, an Evangelical pastor, had sexually assaulted multiple young women during his career, Hinton has made it his life’s work to teach churches how to guard against pedophiles.

The program is free, with lunch provided.
