The West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptists are grateful for the recommendations of the Southern Baptist Convention Sexual Abuse Task Force, and likewise as a state convention, we have formed our own task force that will bring recommendations to our WVCSB Executive Board for implementation within all of our churches. We are supportive of the work of the SATF and believe they accomplished the expressed will of SBC messengers for a robust and thorough review of sexual abuse within our denomination. Though we are deeply grieved by the results published in the report, we believe transparency will only guide our convention towards godly accountability, repentance, healing for survivors, and prevention to establish safe and effective ministry for the glory of God.
