Bonnie Nicholas, interim director of Safe Church Ministry (SCM), was introduced to Synod 2011 on Thursday morning.
“Every person is created in the image of God. I’m really proud to be a part of a church that affirms this,” she said.
Nicholas was appointed to her office in April of this year. "A lot of people think that Safe Church is for other churches—it’s not. We all wish we didn’t have the problem, but in fact it is there, and it affects a lot of people in our churches,” she explained.
“Safe Church Ministry is here to provide a safe place for ministry, for growth. That can only happen when every single person feels safe.”
