About Us

We can’t heal what we don’t reveal. We can’t address that which we don’t understand. Therefore, at Reveal to Heal we believe that with proper education and training we can reduce the likelihood of child sexual abuse. 


Reveal to Heal also believes that it’s time to start addressing the topic of sexual abuse prevention and awareness in the faith environment and address its spiritual impact. Too often, members of the faith community have been misinformed or uninformed about the complexities of abuse and its affects. 


Our hope is that communities of faith can become the safest communities for the vulnerable and victimized. We seek to shine a light on the Biblical truths of God’s love for the broken, oppressed, and victimized. Our prayer is that survivors of sexual abuse can heal their spiritual wounds through the power and love of Jesus Christ.
