For many, the church is a safe place where you worship God and learn how to follow Jesus. But for some, the church is a place of deep wounding and trauma. How does the evangelical church deal with its own issues of sexual abuse? How do we set up safeguards for those who are vulnerable? And what are some steps we can take to create a safe haven for survivors? Don’t miss the important discussion on Chris Fabry Live.
Mary DeMuth is an author, speaker and podcaster who is passionate about helping you live a re-storied life. A survivor of neglect and sexual abuse, Mary was gloriously rescued by Jesus when she was 15. She has spent her life healing from trauma so she can help others not feel so alone.
She is the wife of Patrick and mom of three adult children.
In the summer of 2019, Anne Marie Miller faced her abuser in court as he was sentenced, more than a decade after his crime. Her powerful story was featured in the Houston Chronicle and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Christianity Today named her one of the ten women changing the face of the Southern Baptist Convention. Under the name Anne Jackson, she has written two books: Mad Church Disease and Permission to Speak Freely. Anne speaks at colleges, conventions and churches on the topics of social justice, sexuality, health, addiction, and biblical themes of grace and restoration.
