This week I was able to attend the Faith Communities Protecting Children conference in Oklahoma City put on by the Potts Family Foundation, the Interfaith Alliance, and the Center for Child Abuse and Neglect at OU. The keynote speaker was Dr. Darrell L. Armstrong the Pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church in Princeton, NJ and founder of the Institute for Clergy Training. He is the product of the Resilience that is offered by faith in Jesus Christ and the support of his local church in South L.A. while he was in foster care as the child of a teen mom. He went on to attend Stanford University and Princeton Theological Seminary and to be a strong advocate for the role Faith communities can have in protecting and supporting vulnerable children and families. I wanted to let you know I have added 5 new links of National Resources to the Churches page of the site. These look like great new resources to share with your local pastors and clergy. Please check them out and share!
