Ministry Testimonials

“I am grateful for the ministry that Safe Keeping Kids provides for churches to help keep children and families safe through training and educational awareness.” 

Rusty Dollar, Executive Pastor, North Orange Baptist Church, Orange, Texas

"Julie and Dale have been a great source of information and direction in helping us develop the best policies and protocols for our church.  They go beyond the in person training.  They are available every step of the way.  Being in church ministry themselves gives them an added advantage on helping any church with just what they need.  Thanks Julie and Dale!" 

Clay Bower, Senior Pastor, Northside Baptist Church, Texas City, Texas

Dale Prudhome, DEdMin

Associate Pastor 

Pine Forest Baptist Church, Vidor, Texas

Dr. Dale is an Associate Pastor who has been in ministry for 25 years in various capacities including leading worship, children’s ministry, education and administration. He is a graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He led his church to adopt effective Child Protection policies and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in helping organizations recognize and make necessary changes  to create more child-safe environments. He believes that many churches and other child-serving organizations are well-meaning but simply under-equipped when it comes to protecting the children they serve and their organizations.
