Church Safety, Made Simple.

Children only thrive where they’re safe and protected.



Secure Your MinistryJoin the Safety Team
Your responsibility, our Specialty.

We help churches and ministries like yours cultivate safe spaces where children encounter the love of Jesus.

We all want safe environments in our churches, but many leaders fail to grasp the magnitude of the threat against the children and students in their care. When they don’t take the responsibility of vetting and training safe adults to care for them, they become part of the problem, rather than the solution. We help thoughtful leaders like you cultivate safe spaces that meet the highest standards in child and student safety as prescribed by the Evangelical Council for Abuse Prevention (ECAP).

Understanding Ecap

The Evangelical Council for Abuse Protection (ECAP) was established in 2019 with the mission of creating the highest standards in safety and abuse prevention for churches. These standards raise the bar for leaders seeking to serve children, students, and their families by helping them better understand what’s at stake and what is needed to combat the threat.


According to Lifeway Research, 44% of Protestant churchgoers say they have been sexually victimized. 12% of these instances happened within the church.


10% of Protestants under age 35 reported leaving a church because of sexual misconduct.

Who We Are

In August of 2019, our founder, Jeremy Herron, was selected to be part of an expert panel that helped create the ECAP national standards for church safety. Using the years of reshaping and leading kids ministries, Jeremy began to see that his impact on local churches could have a broader reach and the passion for keeping children safe could be instilled at every ministry across the nation. Over time, these conversations developed into Fortified Consulting to create a more formal approach to see every church, school and ministry be stronger and safer for the children and youth in these programs.
