“churches can make the goal of ending domestic abuse a prominent part of their ministry…Standing together, churches can become powerful first-responder networks that help create zero tolerance for intimate partner and dating violence throughout the communities they serve. First, pastors and their teams must learn to recognize the signs and, then, how to address domestic abuse without jeopardizing the abused person’s safety.” Domestic Violence and the Church (What churches can to stop domestic violence & support families):http://www.eagles-wings-ministry.com/dv-church.html
