Safeguarding Children from Abuse

Since 2004, GRACE (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment) has empowered hundreds of Christian communities to recognize, prevent, and respond to child abuse. Abuse is a common reality in our world, and it will not go away by ignoring it.
As followers of Jesus Christ, the GRACE team seeks
to be faithful and obedient to His teaching and to the teachings of Scripture. In the Bible, Jesus places great value on the compassionate care and advocacy for all who are vulnerable, including children. He even said, in Mark 9:37, “whoever receives a little child in my name receives me.”
Child abuse is a pervasive evil in the world and, sadly, even in the church. It is to your credit that you have taken this first step to gain critical insight on the nature of child abuse and how it hides in churches and homes. May God bless you as you prepare to face this evil and prevent abuse in your church and community.
