Event description

Description

This two-day training, offered by InFaith Community Foundation and facilitated by FaithTrust Institute, is designed to help Christian pastors and lay leaders understand the dynamics of domestic and sexual violence and the ramifications of violence on individuals, the church and the community. It also equips churches to develop protocols to protect victims, prevent future harm, and respond effectively and sensitively to victims/survivors, their families, and abusers.

The training will also address issues particular to individuals serving in leadership roles, including three break-out sessions that focus on:

  • Domestic Violence Response: Pastoral Care

  • Child Abuse Prevention and Response

  • Healthy Teen Relationships

This training is for church teams of two-four people. Leaders such as a pastor, a youth or children's pastor, a lay leader from the church council, a Christian education leader and/or Sunday school teacher, and/or a parish nurse.

InFaith Community Foundation is generously covering all training expenses for attendees (including one night’s hotel) as a means to further individual Christian church responses to family violence, and also reinforce an ecumenical response within the region. Churches from California are invited to apply.
