Texas Pastor Launches “Fearless” Video Series to Help Churches Provide Support for Sexual Assault Survivors

An American pastor produced a program seeking to tackle the healing of women who are victims of sexual abuse.

In a webinar hosted by Covenant Eyes, a pornography accountability software company, Pastor James Reeves of City On a Hill church shared about “Fearless Series for Women,” a tool to help women recover from the trauma of sexual abuse, The Christian Post (CP) reported.

“So we were dealing with the sexual issue in men, but they were not addressing the fact that they had women who were survivors of sexual abuse. Maybe one out of every three probably, is what they say in churches today. … It was very frustrating to me, so I decided to do a [film project],” the pastor said.

“This is a subject that the Church can talk about. God’s Word says a lot about it, and we should be talking about it. And we should be helping women who have experienced the trauma of that violation. [The Church] is the best place. … Our culture now is really opening up to this and the opportunity for ministry in the local church,” he continued.

Pastor Reeves assured that the program is biblically based and professionally done, having been a pastor for more than 40 years, as well as a strong educational background on Theology.

“So I designed it as a pastor for pastors. They can trust that this is good stuff. It’s biblically based. It’s professionally done just to give women the opportunity to get the conversation started and watch what happens,” he stated.

The pastor said that he modeled his church as a “hospital church” wherein people can come to heal. The video series will help women share about their experience in a safe environment and recover from it.
