What Others are Saying about Chris:
"Chris and Leslie are not only extremely qualified to speak into this field, but their counsel is rich with the gospel. They show a deep understanding of how God’s character and redemptive plan inform the church’s response to abuse. Simultaneously, they are very well acquainted with the church’s troubled history of dealing with this issue with the seriousness and intentionality that is necessary. Their training makes key corrections and recommendations for churches that seek to honor the Lord’s high view of covenant and to protect vulnerable and abused people.We have no doubt that Leslie and Chris will be a fantastic resource for your church or organization. We eagerly recommend them to you."
Matt Chandler, Josh Patterson, and Brian Miller, Lead Pastors, The Village Church
"We invited Chris Moles to come and train the elders at Bethlehem Baptist Church so that we could grow in our ability to shepherd our people through the horrors of domestic abuse. We had high hopes because he came highly recommended. We were not disappointed. Time and time again the Lord gave us "aha" moments concerning what questions to ask and when to ask them, how to look for warning signs, and how gospel confrontation aims for the heart in calling for repentance and gospel transformation. This training was a lifeline for us in a difficult season of shepherding. I thank God for Chris Moles and this material."
Jason Meyer, Pastor for Preaching and Vision. Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN

Called to Peace Ministries
Individuals affected by domestic violence and other life crises struggle with limited resources, from housing to employment to childcare and transportation, and many stay in abusive situations simply because of these limitations. Currently we maintain a database of resources to share, and are working on a plan to provide resources such as housing and transporation directly. At Called to Peace Ministries, we believe that healing belongs to God. His Word and Spirit are powerful instruments of healing! We offer practical, biblically-based counsel and support groups to help individuals and families overcome destructive relational cycles. Our confidential services are offered free of charge to those who cannot afford to pay, and all are welcome to utlilize our services. You do not need to share our faith, and we do not force our beliefs in anyone.
We recognize that without proper knowledge and training those who desire to minister to victims of domestic violence may unwittingly make matters worse. Therefore, CTPM offers educational seminars and training to help equip churches and other organizations by giving them the knowledge necessary to help. We offer quarterly community wide workshops on domestic violence in the Raleigh, NC area, but we are also willing to travel to your church or small group.
