Chapel Probation s4: Christa Brown- SBC Abuse Survivor and Activist for Justice

Christa Brown was a victim of horrible sexual abuse as a child by her SBC youth pastor. This took place in what she calls, "Baptistland," and this is the title of her incredible book. She writes unflinchingly at her childhood filled with abuse at the hands of said pastor and her family members, but she also pulls herself out of Baptistland to become a successful attorney. She eventually takes up the fight against the SBC when she discovers that her experience was not unique in the SBC. In an attempt to expose the coverup that was systemically engineered at every level, she created a database of pastors who had been credibly accused of sexual assault. This led to her being brutally attacked online and threatened in person by everyone from top SBC officials to everyday congregants of SBC churches. But through it all, she has found her voice and her identity. To me, she's a bonafide hero.

You can read more from Christa on her Substack and her previous book, This Little Light: Beyond a Baptist Preacher Predator and His Gang.
