In the court of public opinion, those accused of child abuse are usually guilty until proven innocent. This is especially true of ministry leaders given the number of high profile cases in recent years.

This will minimize both the risks of abuse and the possibility of false accusations against ministry workers.

Happy Independence Day from your friends at the NCLL! This July Fourth, we are reminded of our American heritage and how thankful we should continually be to live in a country that was founded upon the Scriptures. God has called me—and our group of attorneys and support staff—to partner with you so we can work together to see America return to its Biblical roots. Will you please pray for us as we are helping churches, litigating cases, and working through several legislative initiatives? It is our hope and prayer to continue to serve you for the remainder of 2014 and beyond. We hope you have a wonderful day celebrating with your families!
