The NSW/ACT Baptist Association and its affiliated churches have been working on the issue of child protection and sexual misconduct since the early 1990s. Comprehensive church based training began in 2003 and in 2012 the Baptist Association created a Ministry Standards Unit and appointed a Manager – Ministry Standards.
