Connection with empathetic peers through EQUIP, a support group

Sometimes advice hurts more than it helps

When ministering to those in unhealthy relationships, it can be hard to know what to say.

  • Traditional marriage advice doesn’t apply to emotional abuse.
  • Church teaching can sometimes excuse abuse.
  • Scripture can be twisted or taken out of context.

You don't have to walk on eggshells any longer.

Together, Chris Moles and Leslie Vernick have 40+ years combined experience working with both abusers and the abused. They can help guide you to address abuse God’s way and help those who desperately need biblical counsel.
