This recorded webinar is sponsored by the United Church of Christ as a part of their Fall Webinar Series, God is Still Speaking: Growing Safe and Healthy Congregations and Families in the Church.

Dr. Sharon Ellis Davis is a United Church of Christ pastor and is the co-founder and Senior Pastor of God Can Ministries in Ford Heights, Illinois.  Dr. Davis serves as An Adjunct Professor and the Interim Director of the Center for African American Ministries and Black Church Studies at McCormick Theological Seminary.

 

Every religious tradition has teachings and sacred texts that can be roadblocks or resources for survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence.  For African American Christians, the intersections of cultural context, religious beliefs and domestic violence are significant. This webinar will:

  • discuss the particular experience of African American women who experience domestic violence
  • lift up the important role that the church plays in responding to domestic violence in families
  • highlight the significant faith issues faced by African American survivors of domestic violence
  • equip religious leaders to become a resource to support survivors and hold perpetrators accountable
  • encourage the church to become a safe place for victims of domestic violence to seek support
