Child abuse remains a perennial top reason churches go to court each year. Recent headlines nationwide only confirm this reality. From jury verdicts doling out multimillion-dollar damages awards, to expanded statutes of limitation for victims to come forward, to new interpretations of the clergy-penitent privilege affecting abuse reporting, the evolving nature of this issue demonstrates the need for church leaders to remain vigilant and intentional about protecting children and youth in their ministries.
In this free, one-hour webinar featuring attorney and senior editor Richard Hammar and Church Law & Tax content editor Matthew Branaugh, viewers will learn more about these emerging trends. Viewers also will receive valuable reminders regarding key best practices and standards their churches should follow to prevent possible abuse and avoid costly and painful litigation.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help your leaders get smarter—and savvier—about this ever-present, and seemingly ever-expanding, threat to churches.
