    To be certified, attendees must attend the full programming.

    American Baptist Women’s Ministries is partnering with Safe Haven Ministries for Bible study and a Domestic Violence certification. This workshop will enable clergy, church leaders, community groups, and domestic violence educators to come together in a safe and intentional manner to learn ways to support and aid those in their communities that are suffering from Domestic Violence. The Bible study will take familiar scripture text and look at it through the lens of domestic violence. Together we will reflect and see how our actions and inactions may impact a survivor in our families, churches and communities.

    Participants will gain knowledge, insight, and skills useful in addressing and preventing domestic violence.

    This workshop qualifies for Continuing Education Units (CEU). Participants will receive a CEU certificate following the event.
