On October 13, 2009 approximately 500 clergy from across the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church came together for the Clergy Gathering 2009. The topic was domestic violence. Training was provided by Gayle Crabtree and by Bishop Swanson, Robin Kimbrough, Deban Yeomans and other members of the Holston Conference Domestic Violence Task Force.
This marked the first time that mandated clergy training on domestic violence was offered to the pastors of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Gayle Crabtree presented on Domestic Violence 101. The talk included information on the cycle of domestic violence, safety planning, symptoms, statistics. She shared heartbreak but also success stories. Pastors left empowered and emboldened to care for victims. Gayle made sure they had the knowledge to back up their compassion and can do the same for your group.
