A recent, high-profile case involving child sex abuse at a church in Oklahoma is a tragic reminder that abuse can happen anywhere, and church leaders must be prepared to respond appropriately. In this case, five staff members delayed reporting the crime for two weeks. All five face misdemeanor charges for their failure to report in a timely way.

Every state has child-abuse reporting laws that clergy and church leaders must know and understand. In this free, one-hour webinar sponsored by Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company, church law expert Richard R. Hammar will discuss common attributes of state abuse-reporting laws, including what to do when a suspected case of abuse arises; the best practices for clergy and staff to follow; and other important details. The event also includes a short question-and-answer session.
