Our toll-free number is staffed by Ethico, an independent organization, providing this reporting resource free from fear of retaliation in a confidential setting, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. You do not have to give your name. The operator will give you a reference number so that you may follow-up.
To be clear, this hotline is for asking a legal, compliance, policy, or ethics question; raising a concern about integrity or ethics issues; or reporting wrongdoing or misconduct. We encourage open and honest communications of concerns and this hotline helps us uncover and address integrity and ethics issues early, while they are easier to resolve. We value the ability for open and confidential reporting.
Your report will be reviewed by an appropriate member of our staff and/or Church Council. All reports are sent to the independent chairperson of our Church Council, the independent chairperson of our Audit Committee, the independent chairperson of our Compensation Committee, our Interim Senior Pastor and a pastor on our Senior Leadership Team, provided, however, that, if your report alleges misconduct by a particular person, your report will not be sent to that person. For example, if you made a report about John, Ethico would send that report to Gerry, Jerry, Ann and Brian, but they would not send it to John.
We also strongly encourage all reports of criminal activities to be reported to law enforcement. Please do so by calling 911.
