Initial Contact for Reporting Pastoral Sexual Misconduct
The Ministerial Committee of CDC is committed to providing a safe place for persons who have been victims of pastoral sexual misconduct to report that misconduct. Once the initial “misconduct report” has been received, an experienced, trained individual will listen to you, provide helpful resources, and walk with you through the initial part of the process.
Conversations are confidential!
If you need to report pastor sexual misconduct you may get in touch with the conference conference contact person Ruth Guengerich at 574-312-0065 or the conference office (574-534-1485),
