Growing Safe and Healthy Congregations and Families in the Church is a webinar series designed to increase the capacity to effectively respond to and prevent domestic and sexual violence and abuse in the life of our churches and communities.
Each webinar will address a different topic from a theological perspective as well as provide best practices and resources. Interaction with the presenters will be possible. This series will educate, equip and inspire both clergy and laity to join the movement to end sexual and domestic violence and abuse. Offered by Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ and the Faith-
