As many of you know, in February several Southern Baptist churches and church leaders were accused of sexual misconduct and abuse. The elders of NW believe such past behavior is unacceptable and should not be hidden or covered up. We also believe that the victims of such abuse need to be heard and cared for. Thankfully, several key Southern Baptist leaders have spoken out and are calling for transparency and change. Below are links to comments by Al Mohler, Russ Moore, and J.D. Greear (the current SBC president). The last link gives practical advice for how victims of abuse can get help.
