Whether sexual, physical, emotional, or spiritual, abuse has impacted nearly every area of church life and ministry. Catholic churches have been scandalized to learn of priests’ abuse of young children. Abuse allegations have shaken ministries and megachurches, schools for missionaries’ children and marriages between committed Christians. Victims seek restitution, forgiveness, and healing. Apologies by perpetrators and the organizations they worked for can help victims heal, as can sharing their stories to raise public awareness and prevent such abuses in the future.
