Survivors of abuse perpetrated by church members and church leaders often find it difficult to experience safety in traditional worship spaces. Trauma caused by abuse, facing abusers still present in churches, and traversing the harrowing path of healing are among the sequlae that often drive church abuse survivors out of church, but not away from God.
PorchSwing Ministries, Inc brings together individuals who no longer feel safe inside the walls of church buildings to be the church to one another.
Blogs, moderated forums, and digital communication bring church abuse survivors together.
Christine Fox Parker brings her passionate love for God and God's people with her as she serves those broken by abuse from her PorchSwing.
No one knows better how to serve abuse survivors than those who have been abused.
When survivors have a space to speak in private, they are known by one another in ways that are profoundly healing.
PorchSwing Ministries, Inc facilitates Survivor to Survivor Care in our members only Survivors' Forums.
