#SBC21 Messengers...Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for hearing our cries and acting in support! While I am beyond elated many important steps have been taken over the last 2 days, there is so much work still left to be done...and it cannot be done by 1 person alone.
There will be a continued need for many things as we move forward with a new sense of hope...Accountability for promises made, ministering to survivors (while meeting them where they are,) continued education into trauma and how we as Christians can respond in a way that...
that honors Christ...etc.
Then, once the investigation is complete and made known, there will be many more steps needed to be taken in regards to genuine repentance & restitution along with concrete actions to prevent further harm to God's children. This is just the beginning...

When I use 'The SBC' I'm speaking about...

My SBC ordained Youth Pastor who sexually abused me

My SBC pastors who blamed me when I reported my assault

My SBC pastors who failed to report my abuse

My SBC pastors that never informed my abuser's next church about his history
My SBC pastors who were not honest with the congregation about what occurred

My SBC pastors who allowed my abuser to lead a 'True Love Waits' weekend right after he assaulted me

My SBC pastors who threw my abuser a going away party
My SBC pastors who never once reached out to me personally after I reported my abuse

The SBC pastor who later hired my abuser all while knowing that he abused me, a teen, in his past youth group

My SBC pastor who continues to deny wrong doing in how my abuse was handled

Thread #SBC21: Does NO ONE have ears to hear, eyes to see, a heart to care AND COURAGE TO ACT??? Why do #SBC survivors continue to get the run around??? @SusanCodone reached out to the chair of the #CredentialsCommittee in an effort to have them right their wrongs with...
regards to my case. When I recently inquired about how it went, here's what she had to say...
"Hi Jules. After I wrote the chair of the committee, I found out he was in some collusion with Mike Stone. He also told me that he was afraid pastors would get...
mad at him if the committee took too many actions. Then I had a zoom call with Rolland Slade, who
was taking over as chair. He seemed genuine and promised to look into your claim. I sent him all the documentation I had already sent to the Credentials Committee and he said he...

I am so livid at the SBC Credentials Committee right now I could scream!!! A Thread: Yesterday, a fellow advocate and friend, @writer_dee, spoke with Mike Lawson and Stacey Bramlett via a Zoom meeting on my behalf.
One of the purposes for the meeting was to address their massive failures regarding my submission...Specifically their lack of communication and failure to speak with me. Stacey made a point to say that their decision is final...that it's too late to go back and change anything.
I find this to be extremely disturbing considering they really don't seem to know what they are doing. Remember, they never once made an effort to speak with me regarding my submission even though they claimed to have done so!!!
