Domestic Violence: Giving A Voice From Beyond the Pulpit

Pastor Neil Schori & Gayle Crabtree

The church plays an important role, today, more then ever before in the lives of those terrorized behind closed doors in their own homes. It is called intimate partner violence.

For clergy to be effective in their communities they must begin to dialogue at the pulpit on Sundays, extending their hand to those whom need it most, the victims. Sometimes a church service is the only safe place for a victim to attend with her children.

I have seen firsthand how effective a Pastor can be when they preach about abuse in a relationship. Pastor Neil Schori's services have provided many of those whom attend his service to safely leave their abusive relationship. His training taught world-wide is specifically geared towards all professional men of faith.

Gayle Crabtree, the wife a Pastor, author of "Does God Still Love Me" and "Second Hand Hope" is the founder of the national organization, Her mission is teaching the faith based community everything from safety to services and the important impact a church has on victims and offenders.

Earlier today, both graced us with what I call "an hour of power" on the Time's Up show. If you are a faith based organization, on a church committee, women's group or are interested in learning more about what you can do within your community, I invite you to listen to today's broadcast.
