2018 DS DCM Orientation on Sexual Ethics


Presented by: Becky Posey Williams

Co-sponsored by: Council of Bishops, Higher Education & Ministry, Discipleship Ministries

Description: One of the most difficult challenges facing District Superintendents is handling complaints of sexual misconduct in the Church. Whenever a ministerial leader commits sexual misconduct the aftermath is traumatic for everyone involved, including the victim, perpetrator and families, and the congregation and staff. The UMC Book of Discipline clearly outlines a process for responding which includes accountability and healing for all. This webinar will offer the opportunity to better understand the dynamics of sexual misconduct and the response a judicatory leader.
