Report Pastoral Misconduct

Initial Contact for Reporting Pastoral Sexual Misconduct

The Pastoral Leadership Team of PNMC is committed to providing a safe place for persons who have been victims of pastoral sexual misconduct (or other pastoral misconduct) to report that misconduct. Calls can be made to the Conference Minister, Katherine Jameson Pitts (503-349-5420), or to PLT Chairperson, Rod Stafford (503-234-0559). We will receive your story and connect you with an advocate and support person who can walk with you through the steps you decide to take in the process described in our Sexual Misconduct Policy.
