A Story of Life After Abuse
Jennifer Greenberg was abused by her church-going father. Yet she is still a Christian. In this courageous, compelling book, she reflects on how God brought life and hope in the darkest of situations.
Jenn shows how the gospel enables survivors to navigate issues of guilt, forgiveness, love, and value. And she challenges church leaders to protect the vulnerable among their congregations. Not Forsaken is not an easy read. But, perhaps today more than ever, it is a must-read.
Praise for Not Forsaken…
“What is one of the most beneficial forms of care we can provide for those who have been abused? Listening. Does that make you uncomfortable? It’s better to admit it and grow than ignore the awkwardness. Jenn Michelle Greenberg has given us an opportunity to listen, which will help us do better when someone we know shares their story with us. Allow her vulnerability and courage to equip you for when someone entrusts you to pastor or befriend them as they navigate the aftershocks of abuse.”J.D. GreearPresident, The Southern Baptist Convention
“If you want to see how the gospel meets those who have been hurt and abused, pick up this powerful book. And if you lead in any capacity in the church, have several copies on hand to help give hope to those who feel hopeless.”Dan DarlingSenior VP for Communications, National Religious Broadcasters
Evangelical Council for Abuse Prevention was created in 2019 to help leaders protect the vulnerable in ministry through standards, accreditation, and resources.
While there are a number of providers doing good work in this space, our community must press forward to excel still more in this biblical stewardship. We believe that every person is created in the image of God for the purpose of worship. The people in our care must be protected from abuse so that they can hear the gospel and grow in discipleship for the purpose of the Great Commission. ECAP seeks to help leaders know what should be done to protect persons and how to respond when an allegation of abuse is reported.
Our accreditation program will assist in demonstrating compliance to the standards resulting in peace of mind for leaders and parents and sustainability to ensure that safety programs continue as designed. There is an important role for other providers to support this mission. From training providers, background check companies, response and investigation teams, as well as care and counseling for victims of abuse. ECAP is a membership-based accreditation organization committed to supporting ministries in creating safe environments for kids.
