How the Church Can Change the Culture of Domestic Abuse

This discussion is designed to educate and equip church leaders with information about abuse that hides in nearly every church.  Thirty five percent of women, including church-going women, will be affected by abuse in her lifetime, and women of faith stay in abusive marriages far longer than women who do not identify with any faith.  From a Biblical perspective, this presentation discusses the tactics abusers use, the prevalence of abuse in the faith community, the effects on women, children and the congregation of abuse, offers specific Biblical guidelines for clergy on how to support the victim, and points out the top ten mistakes that church leaders make in addressing abuse. This presentation is offered either as a presentation or a workshop format for clergy and church leaders.
