COUNSELING VICTIMS OF RELIGIOUS ABUSE
Turn to any television station, open a newspaper or surf the internet and you are bound to find headlines detailing appalling church scandals; from ministry leaders accused of rape, to outlandish abuses of power. Captions like these suggest the church has a serious image issue and a blatant disregard for the feelings of their congregation. Some call it Church Hurt. Many people use this catch phrase to explain why they left or are planning to leave a church. Unfortunately, the typical church response to this statement is; the church doesn’t hurt people, people hurt people. While this may be true, it doesn’t change the fact that an emotional scar has occurred and souls have been injured. What happens to these victims? How do they recover from the harm that’s been inflicted upon them? Some say The Lord will heal in time, and that may be true, but as a ministry leader it is your responsibility to guide victims through the healing process.
If you are a Pastor leading a church of good people with spiritual scars, let us prepare you to minister to the broken and bring them back to spiritual health. Dr. Jackson and St. Thomas Christian University have developed a training model and workshop to equip and empower leaders to bridge the gap and meet the needs of wounded people. The program offers practical lectures, clinical role plays, and hands-on sessions with a proven method of spiritual recovery. Become an expert in healing victims of Church Hurt.
