Safe and Healthy Churches Training: Ending Family Violence

September 28-29, 2018

First United Methodist Church of San Diego

2111 Camino Del Rio South, San Diego, California 92108


InFaith Community Foundation is sponsoring Safe & Healthy Churches Training: Ending Family Violence, a two-day training in San Diego, California, designed to help Christian clergy and lay leaders understand the dynamics of domestic and sexual violence and the ramifications of violence on individuals, the church and our shared community. It also highlights protocols to protect victims, prevent future harm, and respond effectively and sensitively to victims/ survivors, their families and abusers.


The training will also address issues particular to faith communities, including break-out sessions focusing on:

  • Domestic Violence Response: Trauma-Informed Pastoral Care
    (special training for clergy, parish nurses, chaplains)
  • Child Abuse Prevention & Response
    (special training for lay leaders, congregants, Sunday school teachers, educators)
  • Healthy Teen Relationships
    (special training for youth leaders and ministers and educators)

The training is ideally created for church teams of at least two people.

Attendee training expenses, including one night’s hotel, is made possible through a generous grant from InFaith Community Foundation as part of its Ending Family Violence Initiative. This initiative provides a means to further individual Christian church responses to family violence, and also reinforce an ecumenical response within the region.

The registration deadline is Friday, September 7, 2018.  The training is limited to 125 participants; please apply as soon as possible. In support of a regional, ecumenical response, church teams from San Diego and surrounding areas are invited to participate. Registration is required.
