Protect the Flock 101: Identifying Domestic Abuse in the Church

October 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Protect the Flock 101: Identifying Domestic Abuse in the Church
Thursday, October 22, 6:00pm-8:00pm

Statistics indicate that one in four women in our churches will experience domestic abuse at some point. These situations are generally very complex, and without proper knowledge, well-meaning helpers can easily do more harm than good. One only needs to watch the news to see that overall our churches have not responded well. Scripture is clear that God’s heart is for the oppressed, and that church leaders are charged with caring well for His sheep (See Ezekiel 34 and Jeremiah 23). Let us help equip you to do just that. Called to Peace Ministries is dedicated to help improve church responses through advocacy and education.

Topics:
Dynamics of Abuse
Warning Signs and Red Flags
A Pastor’s Testimony of Encountering Abuse in the Church
