AVA (Advocacy for Victims of Abuse)
The Evangelical Covenant Church addresses sexual assault and its related concern, domestic violence, through the Advocacy for Victims of Abuse (AVA) initiative. As a church we acknowledge the reality of brokenness and sin in the world as well as the power of the community to heal brokenness through Jesus Christ. AVA informs, educates, and raises awareness in our congregations and communities.
If you are interested in joining SCC’s coordinating team for our growing AVA ministry, please contact the office. Also, SCC will be hosting a broader training regarding AVA, and related topics, on May 11. This training is open to the public, both those who attend SCC and those who do not but would be interested in becoming better educated and equipped to respond to sexual assault and domestic violence in the community.
