If abuse happens in your church, would the leadership push aside the victim for the sake of the church and leadership image? OR, would your church leave the 99 and run to help the victim/survivor? I’m just asking, because it is important to prepare and not be blindsided.

While this is a tough read, it is one that I believe is necessary for anyone serving in a leadership role in a church, for someone seeking a healthy church, and for individuals in ministry. This book should be added to curriculum at Bible colleges as a guide on how to properly handle abuse and as a guide on how not to handle abuse.
I’m grateful for this read, not just as an individual who lived through this situation, but as someone who serve full time in ministry now as an adult. I hope people will be open minded to learning from and listening to the victims and whistleblowers always.
