COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 22, 2023 /Christian Newswire/ -- It can be difficult for a ministry to prepare for potentially damaging abuse claims and possible litigation. Many Christian speakers, churches and outreach ministries have unfortunately found themselves embroiled in controversy and unprepared to handle the backlash from moral crisis and abuse allegations. Planning through preparation and training is vital to ensure the longevity and success of a ministry, but it can often be difficult to start the process.

Telios Law, PLLC, serves businesses, individuals, ministries, and churches, and represents clients in litigation, investigations, appeals, and alternatives to litigation, while providing legal advice on a variety of issues. Telios Law also provides reliable information for ministries in need of legal aid and guidance.

"Preventive planning or negotiating can often avoid lawsuits. And if you are going to be in a legal proceeding, you should have excellent legal support," said Telios Founder Theresa Lynn Sidebotham. "Legal needs can easily get tangled up with conflicts and interpersonal problems that can sabotage the mission of a ministry and create risk. In today's environment, legal solutions should include solving conflict in ways that heal people and preserve their vision, while protecting the organization from liability."

Telios Law emphasizes educating and preparing ministries through Telios Teaches, which offers concise, values-based training from an Imago Deo (image of God) perspective. Telios Teaches provides helpful resources, training, and solutions that line up with God's calling for ministries and their leaders.

"Through Telios Teaches, we train religious organizations to prevent and respond to misconduct and allegations using common values their staff learners can understand," Sidebotham commented. "The online subscription options give an organization access to an ever-growing library of concise, value-based resources that teach leadership and staff how to prevent misconduct and how to respond to allegations in a way that shows care and integrity and protects against legal liability."
