  • Clergy Sexual Misconduct Policy

    Clergy Sexual Misconduct Policy

    Clergy are in a position of great trust, power and responsibility. This provides the opportunity for unique relationships of grace and caring. While most clergy remain faithful to their vows and their covenant with God and the church, there are clergy who sometimes violate the trust given them. Sexual misconduct is one grave violation of this trust. We also acknowledge that laypersons can engage in acts of sexual misconduct, abuse and /or harassment. This policy seeks to address the abuse of power by all clergy and laity who engage in sexual misconduct, abuse, and/or sexual harassment.
