Oppressed, hurting women are looking for comfort and relief. Pastors and church leaders want to help. Individuals are concerned. What prevents our churches from effectively helping women abused by their husbands?
The missing piece is an understanding of domestic abuse and how to apply the good news of Jesus, His Word, and character to what has remained unseen, unknown, and misunderstood.
Churches and pastors, follow Christ by protecting the weak and oppressed. Be a place of hope and healing. Women experiencing domestic abuse, choose to follow Jesus. He knows, hears, and will meet you in your need. Sanctuary provides practical descriptions, help, and hope for women who are suffering and those who long to help.
Sydney Millage, author of Sanctuary: Help and Hope for Victims of Domestic Abuse (Focus Publishing 2018), is a certified biblical counselor with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC) and earned a Master of Arts degree in Biblical Counseling from Faith Bible Seminary in Lafayette, IN. She lives on a farm in the Midwest where she provides counseling and training, volunteers as a Victim Advocate/Survivor Counselor with local social services, and is active in her local church.
Sydney is available to speak for your group or organization. Unless you are training for abuse, it is most advantageous to speak on another topic and introduce biblical truth related to abuse as a means of building awareness. Requests can be made via: firstname.lastname@example.org
