Loving Those Who Betray The Foundation of Love
by David Livingston

It has been fifteen years since I first walked into a battererís treatment group in Nashville, Tennessee.

Ministry Team Summary

When was the last time you heard a sermon on domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, or how violence is destroying our families? Have you heard a sermon or class on the texts of terror such as the rape of Dinah (Genesis 34), the Leviteís concubine (Judges 19), a rape in Davidís house (2 Samuel 13), or the healing of an abused nation (Lamentations)?

AMFM seeks to provide clergy, ministry leaders, and counselors with the tools to protect victims of abuse, hold batterers accountable, and empower survivors to heal from their trauma. We also seek to provide resources for congregations seeking to become powerful allies in preventing abuse in their communities, neighborhoods, and cities.
