Individuals that find themselves in an abusive relationship need to know that God loves them. In time victims will have a revelation from God that their situation can change if they turn to Him for guidance and emotional healing. They need to focus their cares on the Lord to find strength during a difficult time in their lives. But they cannot do this on their own. However, many clergy, leaders, and laity are not receiving adequate training to minister to victims.

“Bringing Hope to Your Future, LLC wants to educate and train pastors, leaders, and laity on ways to help victims of domestic and intimate partner violence by providing them with resource information, safety planning, counseling, emotional, spiritual support, etc. in the Church and the community.

Domestic Violence: The awakening of the Church to this important issue in today's society

By Dr. Peach Payne

A woman that has experienced domestic violence in her household has suffered a loss of self-esteem, security, and spiritual covering. A woman seeking help to flee an abusive situation can turn to secular society to direct her to shelters, lawyers, and finances to relieve her fears of finding a place for herself and her children. Churches are aware of domestic violence issues, but many pastors, leaders, and laypersons are not properly trained to minister to victims seeking guidance and support.
