WHY PREVENTING & RESPONDING TO SEX ABUSE IS ESSENTIAL FOR THE CHURCH?
We have a clear gospel call to care well for children, teenagers, & vulnerable adults. We must not turn a blind eye or deaf ear since it may be difficult or hard. We must respond!
DID YOU KNOW?
1 in 4 girls & 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before they turn 18. (D2L)
Only 16% of child victims ever tell about their abuse. (NCAC)
A male abuser who molests boys has an average of 150 victims. A male abuser who molests girls has an average of 52 victims. (Emory University)
WHAT CAN MY CHURCH DO?
Every Pastor & church can learn how to Train, Screen, Protect, Report, and Care.
Gateway Seminary and MinistrySafe are working together to prevent children from sexual abuse.
MinistrySafe has a 5-part safety system which provides overlapping layers of protection: Awareness Training, Skillful Screening Process, Policy and Procedures, Background Checks, Monitoring and Oversight.
