“Oppressed, hurting women continue to look for help and safety, but there is a disconnection between their need and provision. Women are seeking help. Pastors love their flock. Church leaders, many of whom are volunteers, want to help. Individuals are concerned. Why, then, are women failing to find help in local churches? What prevents our churches from effectively helping women who are abused by their husbands?”
In her new book, Sanctuary, Sydney Millage (member of Faith Baptist Church in Iowa City and ACBC certified counselor), explores these questions and offers help in answering them in a way that equips churches to meet the needs of those in difficult and dangerous domestic circumstances. You can find out more about the book and ministry to those suffering from domestic abuse at her website. You can also order your own copy of this helpful new resource here.
