This guide was developed to help churches respond to situations of interpersonal sexual harm not involving leaders or children. Churches who use this guide should publicly commit to its’ implementation and inform their community on how concerns or disclosures of sexual harassment and abuse will be handled. One of the ways we can make churches safer places, both in terms of prevention and response, is by clearly and publicly communicating policies, processes, and supports . This guide lays out clear options for assistance and intervention in ways that center the voice and agency of those harmed, and respect the dignity and rights of all parties involved.
