“Christy Gunter Sim’s Survivor Care speaks directly to persons who have survived trauma and all people who support survivors. She writes with clarity and sincerity as a survivor, professional, and clergy member. These particular standpoints give her exceptional insight into reimagining who the church is called to be and how it is called to minister to those who have survived abuse and trauma.”

Quote: February 6, 2019: The Western PA Conference:Survivor Care: Many clergy and pastoral-care professionals are unprepared to assist the victims of domestic violence who sit in their churches’ pews, writes Dr. Christy Gunter Sim in “Survivor Care: What Religious Professionals Need to Know About Healing Trauma,” a book recently published by the UMC Board of Higher Education and Ministry. Get details.

Quote: January 22, 2019: #MeToo in Church: New Guide to Pastoral Care for Domestic Violence Survivors. “In my world, where I deal with survivors of violence daily, I see women in particular leaving the church in order to find healing elsewhere. The space that should be welcoming, loving and supportive becomes a source of greater agony and pain,” writes Sim. “… It is time to pay attention to this crucial issue in our faith communities, and this book is a guide for how to do that.”
