Domestic Violence 101 To Be Offered To Church Office Administrators

Nov. 13, 2008

A free workshop luncheon for church office administrators titled "Domestic Violence 101: Resources for First Responders" will be held from 12 noon to 2 p.m., Nov. 20, at the Family Abuse Center in Waco. The event is being cosponsored by the Baylor Center for Family and Community Ministries and the Baylor Center for Ministry Effectiveness and Educational Leadership.

Becky Ellison, executive director of the Family Abuse Center and a Baylor MSW alumna, will present the workshop. "We believe this workshop will be a great opportunity to learn and get resources that you need to help those who come to the church hurting as a result of domestic violence," Ellison said. "We also would like to see pastors attend."

The two Baylor Centers offered a similar workshop in the fall on the topic of benevolence, with training and information about response to those who come to the church doors in need of food or services.

Please register by Monday, Nov. 17 by contacting Tammy Woods or at 254-710-3704. Directions to the Family Abuse Center will be given upon registration.
