A New Year: Safe Church Ministry in 2017
Changes are in store for Safe Church Ministry in 2017. Hopefully soon, we will have new staff, with a new focus on safe church team development and support. In addition, opportunities for collaboration and partnership continue to grow, in and outside the CRC, as issues of abuse become more prominent in the public sphere. It can be tempting at times to see only the deficits and the unrealized potential, which can be discouraging, as well as overwhelming. It can feel heavy wondering if things will ever change. Yet there are many good things happening in safe church ministry that give us reason to rejoice. There has been real progress. Rejoice with us for all the good safe church ministry work that was accomplished in 2016 (see article below). There are also many exciting opportunities coming up in 2017 such as Trauma Healing (see article below) and expanded Safe Church Mini-Grants (see the Safe Church website for details). Pray with us for continued learning and growth in 2017.
And THANK YOU!
