Top Moravian Church leaders step down as church reels from sex scandal
According to a report in jamaicaobserver.com, President of the Moravian Church in Jamaica Dr. Paul Gardner and his deputy, Jermaine Gibson, have stepped away from their positions on the Provincial Elders Conference to facilitate a probe into more allegations of sexual misconduct within the church.
The conference is an executive supervisory body for the church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.
The church has found itself in an untenable position following charges of carnal abuse and rape of a 15-year-old girl in St Elizabeth against Moravian minister Rupert Clarke.
