Preparing Louisiana Baptists to Prevent and Respond to Sexual Abuse
Following the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Louisiana Baptist Convention, Executive Director Steve Horn appointed a Sexual Abuse Response Council.

Some of the anticipated resources include:
- Biblical Call for Righteousness and Protection
- Sexual Abuse Response Checklist
- Definitions and Louisiana Statutes
- Child Abuse and Adult Abuse
- Minor Protection Methods
- Flow Chart Diagram
- Reporting Agencies
