(RNS) — A “Safe Churches and Ministers” video features a woman recalling how, from the first day she worked as an interim youth minister, the senior pastor of a prestigious Baptist church began making inappropriate sexual advances.
“Is her story familiar?” asks a narrator after the woman describes too-long hugs, inappropriate conversations and an offer to share a hotel room at a denominational meeting.
The board elected Bethany Molinar Rivera, youth and families program director of Ciudad Nueva, as its new president.
The realignment at the network reflects natural changes and a desire to use the strengths of all of the people involved, said Molinar Rivera, a graduate of Baylor University’s Truett Theological Seminary and Diana R. Garland School of Social Work.
Baylor Master of Social Work student Juliana Hale has been inspired by her work with many different populations, to earn her graduate degree. We were able to sit down with Juliana and ask her about her decision to pursue a career in the field of social work, why she chose to attend Baylor University, and her experiences within the program.
