Statement from the GRACE Board of Directors

December 7th, 2016, the GRACE Board of Directors issued a public statement in response to credible allegations that Tullian Tchividjian had engaged in clergy sexual abuse over multiple women. These claims included much evidence that is impossible to ignore.

As of this date, Tullian Tchividjian has not repented or made right the terrible wrongs he has committed.

As long as the status quo remains, this statement will remain on our site. We know many disgraced leaders try to rehabilitate their image after scandal, and we hope people exercise discernment before accepting religious speech as evidence of heart change.


We believe that no material institution is more sacred to God than His lambs—be it church or mission or family. Institutions ordained by God were destroyed at His hand when they became corrupt. Given that we must be what He calls His people to be or we too will have chosen silence and darkness over truth and light, we make the following statement.
