Our guest today is Gregory Love.

Gregory S. Love is a recognized expert in legal standards of care related to child sexual abuse. He also has a unique passion for equipping ministry leaders with an understanding of sexual abuse issues facing the Church. Litigating sexual abuse cases across the United States, his unique perspective provides valuable counsel to high profile secular clients, while providing crisis response to ministries and churches nationwide. In addition to creating loss control resources for insurance companies, Love regularly trains underwriting and risk management professionals to assess sexual abuse risk. After decades of litigating sexual abuse cases and providing legal counsel to ministries, Love partnered with Dallas Theological Seminary to create the first seminary course addressing the risk of child sexual abuse in ministry contexts.
