UMC sexual ethics resources are available
January 29, 2019
The UMC believes sexual misconduct within ministerial relationships represents an exploitation of power and is a betrayal of sacred trust. The UMC defines sexual misconduct as a continuum of behaviors that includes sexual harassment, which is the creation of a hostile or abusive working environment resulting from discrimination on the basis of gender (2012 Book of Resolutions ¶2044). The General Commission on the Status and Role of Women (click here
