One in four and one in six is NOT okay! One in four girls and one in six boys experience sexual abuse. This is our cultural context, the living reality for people in our congregations. And this is the environment in which our children grow up. What is the role of the Church in the face of these horrific statistics? This webinar examines how sexual abuse happens, what some of the impacts are, and then explores how churches can play a key role in ending this epidemic in our culture. It’s NOT OK! Join us to find out what we can do about it.
