Initiatives



1) How should the church of Jesus Christ seek to prevent sexual misconduct and handle accusations regarding such conduct if they should arise?

 

One of the tragic problems in some Christian churches and organizations in the present day is sexual misconduct and abuse.  This should NEVER be the case and the WRF, with the help of many of its members is seeking to provide guidance in this area.  For full details on all that we have already done and for suggestions of areas in which continue to work, type the words “sexual abuse” in the search box in the upper right corner of this home page.  


2) Assistance to the Church in South Sudan


For years, the Sudanese Reformed Churches, a denominational member of the WRF) have been experiencing persecution.  At their request, the WRF arranged (in November of 2017) for the writing and publication of a history of this denomination and a copy of that history is available on this website.  In addition, WRF members Flip Buys and Rob Norris have spent and will continue in 2018 to spend significant time in the country assisting with (i) refugee support (ii) trauma training (iii) seminary development.


3) Working on "Christian Civility."


Three members of the WRF (Richard Mouw, Craig Higgins, and Sam Logan), joined by Katherine Leary Alsdorf and Vince Bacote, arranged a "Consultation of Christian Civility" in New York City from October 3 - 5, 2017.  Twenty-five evangelical leaders met at Central Presbyterian Church (EPC) to discuss ways of addressing the problem of "verbal nastiness" among evangelical Christians in the USA.  Out of the Consultation came several specific ideas which are in the process of being implemented.  

 

NOTE: Questions about or offers of assistance with any of these initiatives may be sent to Sam Logan at  sloganwrf@gmail.com
