NASHVILLE, Tenn. (OSBORNE) -- The Nashville based Southern Baptist Ethics Commission has launched a denomination-wide response to sexual abuse.

 

The campaign is a reaction to the #metoo movement and recent sex scandals within the SBC.

 

Current Convention President J.D. Greear is out with a video introducing what’s being called “The Caring Well Challenge.” In the video, Greear explains what the denomination hopes the campaign will accomplish.

“It’s a free initiative designed to walk with church leaders step by step towards becoming a church that is safe for survivors and safe from abuse.”

SBC Ethics Commission leader Russell Moore launched The Caring Well Challenge at a Franklin church on Sunday.

 

The Tennessean quotes Moore saying congregations need to report abuse to authorities immediately, inform the entire congregation, and minister to survivors.
