Despite our best efforts and due diligence, sexual misconduct/abuse by clergy and lay leadership in our congregations does occur. 

The Book of Discipline, Discipleship Ministries and the New England Conference offer mechanisms by which sexual abuse/misconduct is to be addressed.

While our hearts break for the victims of misconduct or abuse, knowing how and to whom an incident should be reported is a first step to beginning the process of healing for everyone affected.
