Statement and Encouragements to BRN Churches Regarding Abuse of Minors and Vulnerable Adults
The Baptist Resource Network of Pennsylvania/South Jersey (BRN) makes the following statement in support of the prevention of abuse and for the protection of minors and vulnerable adults. As an organization we recognize we have no authority over any church however it is our intention to encourage all churches affiliated with the BRN to be in full compliance with state law and diligently guard those whom God has given us for the purpose of ministry.
BRN Constitution & Bylaws
Upon review of the current BRN Constitution & Bylaws from BRN legal counsel, the 2018 Constitution & Bylaws Committee worked most of the year to process much needed revisions. The goal of the committee was to have a Constitution & Bylaws document that can be a foundation for the BRN for many years to come. They made revisions that are up-to-date with current laws concerning non-profits, revisions to streamline the BRN operations, and revisions to clearly articulate when the BRN Policies & Procedures Manual will be the guide for the BRN administrative and operational duties. At the 2019 Annual Meeting, messengers will vote on the proposed document.
