Sexual Misconduct Prevention

What does MCEC do to prevent sexual misconduct?

  • All MCEC ministers sign a Covenant Regarding Ethics in Ministry with MCEC and the congregation in which they are serving.
  • In addition, every five years all active ministers are expected to attend continuing education events such as the Healthy Pastoral Relationships Workshop which outlines appropriate behavioral boundaries.
  • All congregations are strongly encouraged to implement a Safe Church Policy, which outlines appropriate and inappropriate behavior and sets in place practical procedures to ensure that their faith community is a safe space for everyone.
  • MCEC works with SMARRT to provide education and resources to foster Church as a safe space for persons of all ages.
