Presenter Rev. Al Miles is the author of Ending Violence in Teen Dating Relationships and coordinates Pacific Health Ministry at The Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.

If physical aggression is part of one in three teen dating relationships as the research suggests, then the question for church leaders is: what are we doing to address teen dating violence in our youth ministry programs? For anyone who might think that Christian youth don’t experience abuse in peer relationships, think again. No one is immune and until now, we have not adequately prepared our youth for the possibility. Our churches and youth groups have not necessarily been safe places for victims or abusers to seek help.  We can change this now.

This webinar for pastors, youth ministers and parents will highlight:

  • The particular experiences of Christian youth dealing with dating violence
  • The context of misunderstood Christian teaching and popular culture that contribute to teen dating violence
  • Ways that church leaders and parents can create safe spaces and engage youth in seeking adult support and in supporting each other
  • Ways to support youth in healthy dating relationships
