Open Investigations


The following institutions have hired a GRACE team to research and investigate matters related to historic abuse, and the investigations are ongoing:


Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE)*

Posted January 4, 2013

*The ABWE investigation was halted in February 2013, and we are no longer taking interviews. 

GRACE was asked by ABWE to investigate the behavior and abuse issues related to Donn Ketcham, the mission culture of the ABWE mission field in Bangladesh, and the manner in which ABWE personnel had responded to the issues relating to Donn Ketcham during his employment and beyond. This independent investigation commenced in May of 2011, but was aborted by ABWE abruptly in February 2013, just weeks shy of completion. Please see the investigation updates below, including GRACE’s response to ABWE’s termination.
