Phoenix: Pastoring on the 13th Floor (Part 1: Sexual Abuse)
12/13/2011 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm10,$
Presenter: Aaron Dailey, Pure Path
4-Part Series Description:
When you enter the elevator of a high rise building you will seldom find the button for the 13th floor. It is because of fear, superstition, or ignorance, that we pretend it doesn’t exist. The “13th floor” issues of abortion, sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and the sanctity of human life have become a widely unrecognized reality, accompanied by a basic fear of people, to honestly address these issues.
Pure Path has developed creative resources along with sermon outlines to give tools to Pastor’s and church leader’s who are bold enough to address “13th Floor” issues. They are committed to coming along side of your local community of believers as you work to confront these issues head on. All of these resources are free of charge to you.
This training goes along with free downloadable resources that you can use in your youth ministry.
Part 1 Dec 13, 2011: Sexual Abuse
One in four women and one in six men will be sexually assaulted at some point in their lifetimes. These stats are probably underestimates. Sexual assault is one of the most under-reported crimes, according to the FBI, because fear and/or embarrassment keeps most victims from reporting what happened. 5% of sexual assault victims are under age 12, 29% are ages 12 to 17, and 80% are under age 30. The highest-risk years are ages 12 to 34, and girls ages 16 to 19. If you are pastoring Sexual abuse is not just something you can ignore.
In this training we will talk about what effects sexual abuse is having on our culture, the disgrace that our youth are facing who have been abused, and the power of the Gospel to free them from disgrace, and the responsibility we have as pastors to those who are abused.
