The Evangelical Council for Abuse Prevention (ECAP) — a new organization aimed at helping evangelical organizations and ministries prevent and respond to abuse — will hold its inaugural national conference on June 17. The meeting will be hosted by First Baptist Church, Nashville. The conference theme is “Prevention and Redemption,” and will equip attendees to effectively prevent abuse in the organizations they serve and be agents of redemption when abuse has occurred. Both prevention and redemption “demonstrate the heart of God in His care for His people,” according to the ECAP website. Further details and information on the conference — in addition to general information about ECAP, its child safety standards, and other resources — can be found at ecap.net.
