The Good Ole Boy’s Club is alive and well at Summit Church. Why would one say that? Years have come and gone BUT finally the Summit Church has hired an outside organization called Guidepost Solutions https://guidepostsolutions.com/ to investigate Bryan Loritts’ mishandling of sex abuse at a former church. Yes, finally, ‘The church of Southern Baptist President J.D. Greear today announced it is hiring a third party to investigate Executive Pastor Bryan Loritts’ handling of sex abuse at a previous church.
As The Roys Report first reported in June, eyewitnesses at Fellowship Memphis, where Loritts served as a senior pastor, alleged that Loritts covered up sex crimes at the church 10 years ago.
Aware of these allegations, Greear’s Summit Church hired Loritts as an executive pastor on June 1.
At the time, Summit claimed that it had conducted its own investigation into the allegations and concluded that though Loritts had made mistakes, he had not participated in a cover-up.
The eyewitnesses, however, told The Roys Report that Summit had conducted a sham investigation and had failed to take their allegations seriously.
Today, the elders at Summit acknowledged in a public statement that their investigation was flawed.
“(W)e realized that without an open and confidential channel for victims to report and an independent investigative firm to evaluate that evidence, an important part of our process was incomplete,” the elders said.
As a result, the church said it has hired a firm called Guidepost Solutions to conduct a new investigation. Summit also published its contract with Guidepost Solutions.’https://julieroys.com/greear-church-investigation-loritts/?mc_cid=78623c2910&mc_eid=b13d34ad49
