Churches need to be aware of how children are being protected at church from sexual, mental, and physical abuse. To help in this effort, we've interviewed a group of leading experts on preventing sexual abuse at church. This is the second interview in a series. The first interview covers how to respond to reports of child abuse.

Roundtable participants: Brian McAuliffe, CFO at Willow Creek Community Church in Illinois; Boz Tchividjian, law professor at Liberty University and executive director of GRACE; Peter Persuitti, managing director of insurance and risk management of Religious & Nonprofit Practice at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.; and Frank Sommerville, lawyer and a shareholder in the law firm of Weycer, Kaplan, Pulaski & Zuber, P.C. Freelance editor Ashley Emmert conducted this roundtable discussion with assistance from Samuel Ogles.

Ashley: What are common blind spots for church boards when it comes to child abuse prevention? How can boards implement a culture of safety and protection?
