Church, Faith & Everyday Life, Justice & Mission Work, Ministry Leadership, Parenting, Small Group Curriculum, Work, and Youth Ministry
As Christians, we are called to “do justice and to love kindness” (Micah 6:8), and a part of this is protecting and providing for the vulnerable. Those who have been or are being abused are particularly in need of our belief, support, and love. We must create spaces of God’s shalom to those at particular risk and denounce abuse in our congregations. To help you on this journey to bring justice and kindness to your community, we will help you identify signs and characteristics of abuse and abusers and develop a plan to support survivors of abuse.
We estimate that this will take you 14 hours to complete (but not all in one sitting!). We recommend going through this Eyes Open to Abuse course slowly and thoughtfully with a mentor or friend, giving yourself space to handle the overwhelming nature of this content.
