This conference will tackle difficult and often-avoided questions, providing theological insights, practical guidelines, and personal stories. Participants will come away from the event with a deeper understanding of the central dynamics of professional sexual misconduct within the church, and better equipped to prevent and respond to these painful situations within their own communities.
Pastors, ministry leaders, and members of the Christian community are warmly invited to join us for a time of learning together around a crucial topic.
