What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic Violence is a pattern of coercive tactics which can include physical, psychological, sexual, economic, and emotional abuse, perpetrated by one person against another person within the confines of a particular relationship, with the purpose of establishing and maintaining power and control over the victim. Domestic Violence can consist of any of the following types of abuse:


Physical - hitting, biting, hair pulling, pushing, or kicking.​​


Psychological and Emotional - putting a person down, mind games, telling secrets, giving the silent treatment, or jealousy.


​Verbal - name calling, criticizing, or publicly humiliating.


Sexual - force sex, continued advances after being told no, or making a partner do things that make them uncomfortable.


Financial - holding back money, buying everything including personal items, keeping banks books and other financial record from your partner.


Domestic abuse fought from the church’s pulpit 


Dr. Pamela Hill, a former battered and beaten wife, stood tall and triumphantly before several hundred congregants at a packed New Greater Bethel Ministries in Queens Village.

With a soul-shaken voice that drew tears and hollers from her audience, she proclaimed, “I’m not a survivor, I’m a conqueror, I am no longer afraid of my husband,  I now have a voice, I’m no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God.”


The hundreds before her raised a collective voice in song, in prayer and in staunch protest against domestic abuse during a four-hour revival-style meeting called “The Silent Cry”


The program boldly exposed violence against women in a place many least expect it-the church.

The expected outcome of the above objectives is to destroy erroneous religion teaching and culture support for abuse. Also, to bring healing to the entire family by projecting the truth that God does not permit domestic violence. Furthermore, religious leaders trained in domestic violence will encourage more women to come out of hiding and seek help from people of similar faith who they feel will understand their dilemma. Finally, the video production is another avenue to reach into abusive homes and provide resource support.
