What to Do When a Registered Sex Offender Comes to Your Congregation

Presenter: Rev. Dr. Kathy McCallie, Phillips Theological Seminary

Registered sex offenders who are released into the community are approaching faith communities and asking to participate in worship and other activities. We know that community support is important to prevent re-offending. How can faith communities be part of an offender’s support network and insure safety for the congregation? Rev. Kathy McCallie has helped a congregation through the process of creating and implementing a policy and educational plan on this issue and has a wealth of experience to share.
