It is a tragic truth that many people associate the church as a place where people have been hurt and abused. The reality is though that Christ intends for his church to be a place of safety for the vulnerable, a place of hope for the hurting, and a place of healing for the wounded. The gospel brings hope and the church brings life to all victims of abuse. Join us for this special workshop in Phoenix as we dive deeper into Abuse and the Gospel.
