Reporting Sexual Misconduct by Church Leaders

MCBC is committed to supporting congregations to ensure that they are safe for everyone.

When sexual misconduct occurs (that is, uninvited sexual engagement of any kind by a church leader) the church takes this very seriously.

Sexual misconduct by church leaders is a topic most people want to avoid. But, unfortunately, the church is not immune, abuse does occur, and the effects can be devastating. It is a topic we need to talk about. Victims deserve to be heard because the harm must be acknowledged, and if ongoing, stopped. If you have experienced sexual misconduct, we extend an invitation that we hope will help you move beyond the pain to a place of restoration and healing.

If you have been a victim of sexual misconduct by a church leader, your story deserves to be heard and you will be treated with dignity, respect, and without judgment. We want to hear about your experiences in a way that will feel safe, respectful, and supportive for you. Our responsibility is to hear your concerns and to ensure that abuse stops and is investigated thoroughly, respecting everyone concerned.
