Is Sexual Abuse Really That Big of a Problem?

1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys will experience sexual abuse before the age of 18

  • Protective barriers in the Church tend to be critically low, creating a target for predators

  • Ongoing failure to address this issue results in increased risk to children and students in ministry programs

The average convicted offender may have
between 50-150 victims

  • Less than 10% of sexual abusers will EVER encounter the criminal justice system

  • There is NO visual profile for molesters

  • Most molesters appear helpful, trustworthy and responsible

The average abuser assaults his first
victim by age 14

  • 90% of victims are abused by someone they
    know and trust

  • Abusers come from all segments of society and many are married, educated and have families

The average age of criminal prosecution is 35 years of age

  • Sexual abusers groom children and gatekeepers prior to sexual behavior

  • Staff Members and Volunteers are gatekeepers and MUST understand and recognize the abuser’s ‘grooming process'

These statistics apply to YOUR ministry.
