Spark Conference Breakout Session: “Correctly Handling a Child Sexual Abuse Allegation” – Gregory Love
This presentation will take place online, August 25. Register for free at thesparkconference.com 

Description of Presentation: Child sexual abuse is traumatic; mishandling an abuse allegation can compound the trauma. How a ministry handles an outcry can have a tremendous impact on an abuse victim/survivor – both good and bad. Gregory Love will discuss the importance of correctly handling an abuse allegation – current outcries and historical allegations. The session will also address the fear most ministries have related to ‘false allegations’.
