NAB Statement on Sexual Misconduct

As the NAB Conference of churches, we deeply grieve the sexual abuse and harassment that has happened in churches across denominational lines. As a conference of churches, we take very seriously our responsibility as church leaders. Any reports of abuse are and will be treated with the utmost care and urgency. We pray for the survivors of this abuse and harassment, as well as those leaders and churches involved. But we are not only praying. NAB leadership is reviewing and, as needed, updating the processes and procedures we have in place as a conference. Our intention is to advocate for truth and to care for the hurting and vulnerable. We will stand in solidarity alongside anyone who has experienced abuse and encourage them to work with local authorities.
