Youth Leader Brunch Podcast: Sexual Assault & Youth Ministry

Our churches need to be a safe place for our students, which is why our last Youth Leader Brunch of the 2018-2019 School Year was about Sexual Assault. We talked about consent, being whole persons, the difference between assertiveness and aggression, and so much more. Our guest, Roxanne Pennington, was INCREDIBLE.

WARNING: This episode is about sex and sexual assault, so there may be some triggers in this episode for you. Take care of yourself, and dip out if you need to.
