From the Back Cover:

They sit in our pews. They come to our church picnics. They may even teach Sunday school or serve on a committee. They are sexual predators, and no church or ministry is immune to the devastating effects of child sexual abuse and the resulting litigation.

Good intentions alone will not stop the physical, emotional, financial, and spiritual damage resulting from just one incident of abuse. This invaluable guide, written by an experienced attorney and active church member, provides must-have information on important questions such as:

· What if a church member or leader is accused of molestation?
· What should be said to the media after an incident or an allegation?
· What insurance coverage should a church have?
· What screening and background checks should be used for church
workers?
· What policies should be implemented to protect children?

“Whether you are running 50 or 500 on Sunday morning, you owe it to yourself and to your congregation to read and study the material in this book. . . . Voyle, you have written a winner!”

—Evangelist Tim Lee
Garland, Texas

“A ‘must-read’ for pastors, ministry leaders, and church members. . . . Predators have no respect for ministries or those who work and worship there. We must be aware, informed, and prepared. [This book] is a vital tool in our arsenal with which we can protect our children.”

—Dan Burrell
Senior Pastor, Northside Baptist Church
Superintendent, Northside Christian Academy
Charlotte, North Carolina
