Willow Creek Association Releases Ministry and #MeToo Resource
TOPICS IN THIS NEWS UPDATENorth America
At the 2018 Global Leadership Summit, Willow Creek Association made a commitment to developing future opportunities for growth and learning around the topic of sexual harassment and abuse as well as power dynamics and the working relationships of women and men. One effort in following through with this commitment was to create the resource, Ministry and #MeToo: A Learning Journey for Leaders. The goal for this resource is to convene experts to increase awareness and to provide practical advice to pastors and leaders of faith-based organizations by exploring:
- The psychology of abuse
- How to create safe and respectful ministry cultures
- The specific ways women and men and churches can make a better future
Recognizing that as an organization we are very much on a learning journey, we would like to thank the outside group of experts who served at this event—Danielle Strickland, Dr. Diane Langberg, DeVon Franklin, Lisa Kirby, Dale Ingraham, Jeff Lockyer and host Liz Testa. We are grateful to them for being our teachers and for inspiring us to move forward and create a future that is truly better together.
