Southern Baptist Executive Committee Hires Guidepost Solutions to Review Moore Allegations

posted on June 11, 2021

Religion News Service’s Bob Smietana reports that the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee has hired Guidepost Solutions to review how it has handled sexual abuse allegations. The review comes after Russell Moore, who recently resigned as head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s public policy arm, charged that committee members “had tried to delay attempts to deal with abuse and to silence abuse survivors.” Smietana writes, “Abuse advocate and attorney Rachael Denhollander, who has been critical in the past of SBC officials’ treatment of alleged sex abuse victims, called Guidepost Solutions a ‘highly qualified firm’ that is capable of reviewing the Executive Committee’s actions and advising SBC leaders.”
