The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is collaborating with partner Baptist Women in Ministry to compile a resource listing best practices.
Baptist Women in Ministry and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship are working in partnership to produce a resource addressing sexual misconduct by clergy.
BWIM Executive Director Pam Durso and Stephen Reeves, associate coordinator of partnerships and advocacy for the Decatur, Ga.- based CBF, began Feb. 8 collecting church policies related to minister or lay leader misconduct, specifically those with guidelines about harassment or extramarital behavior.
Durso said the collaboration isn’t in reaction to any particular occurrence but rather “a proactive step forward to address an issue that BWIM and CBF both care about.”
Individuals with policies to share with partner churches and organizations may send them to Durso at [email protected].
