How can our churches become places of healing for those who have experienced church trauma and spiritual abuse? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Ryan George. Ryan is the co-founder of a spiritual adventure community in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. He’s written several books, including his latest, titled “Hurt and Healed by the Church.” Ryan shares his story of redemption and reconstruction of his faith after spiritual abuse and church trauma. Together, Ryan and Jason look at some of the ways that our local churches can open our doors and make space for those who’ve experienced spiritual abuse.
