Event description

Description

The Church has been called by Christ to serve as his body, to care for those who are marginalized and oppressed, to bring hope and healing to broken lives and broken relationships, and to speak boldly against the injustice of violence against women, men, and children. AVA (Advocacy for Victims of Abuse) is a ministry providing education, awareness, and support for persons dealing with various forms of trauma including sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence. It is offered by the Love Mercy Do Justice Mission Priority of the Evangelical Covenant Church.

AVA works to educate and raise awareness in Christian communities with the goal of making them safe and healthy. AVA seeks to help all persons recognize abuse, to support the abused, and to give language to speak about abuse for advocates and survivors alike. Training is appropriate for pastors, youth ministry staff, small group leaders, childcare workers, and volunteers at all levels.

The AVA training is a 7.5 hour experience using PowerPoint, video, group interaction, Scripture, and theoretical case histories. The key topics covered will be:

  • Domestic Violence
  • Child Sexual Assault
  • Sexual Assault and Trauma for the Survivor
  • Faith and Forgiveness Issues

People who take the AVA training will:

  1. Be equipped to recognize and address abuse in their communities.
  2. Understand the needs of those who have been assaulted or violated and be equipped to minister to them.
  3. Be equipped to develop a contextualized AVA ministry in their setting.

Pease note: 1) Breakfast and Lunch will be provided. 2) There will be no childcare.

Please contact Ancy Post (ancy.post@emetro.org) and Sanetta Ponton (sanetta.pontont@emetro.org) if you have any questions.
