Kari Vadis has been training pastors and congregations in Child Protection since 2020. She has a passion for making The Church a safe community for children as well as adult survivors of child sexual abuse. Through story and practical next steps, she will prepare you for situations regarding abuse.

Thursday 5:00 pm – Great Marriages Oasis – “Beyond the Policy: Empowering the Faith Community to Recognize & Respond to Child Abuse & Sexual Assault”
The church is the perfect environment for an abuser to show up in sheep’s clothing. The primary goal of this workshop is to help pastors and congregations be away and prepared for situations regarding abuse. We will look at best practices for prevention and responding to disclosures of abuse. By the end, I hope to inspire faith leaders to see the significant role they have in protecting and caring for victims/survivors. *May contain sensitive information.
