Ministry has sad but necessary job: Protect children from adults


January 31, 2020

Child sexual abuse scandals have rocked the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts, and far too many Protestant churches, which is why a ministry is working to protect children from becoming the next victim.

According to attorney and child advocate Kimberlee Norris of MinistrySafe, 90 percent of kids who are sexually abused are abused by someone they know and trust – not a stranger.

And those abusers, she says, are typically very good at not getting caught.

“There’s a process utilized by these offenders,” she warns, “to gain access to children: Select specific children, prepare that child, and then keep that child silent.”
