From the latest UCG council of elders meeting.
Ethics Committee—Dan Dowd
The Ethics Committee is tasked with addressing ethical violations by any elder, overseeing the Member Appeal Committee and the Elder Appeal Committee, in addition to any other matter the Council would remand to it.
Currently there are no pending matters before the Ethics Committee. However, since the December 2019 meetings the Ethics Committee was involved in three proposed Member Appeals. Those Member Appeals were rejected because the individuals submitting the appeals did not meet the criteria for a Member Appeal (specifically, they had not received any “disciplinary measures” to appeal). The Ethics Committee worked collaboratively on the letters to explain to these members why their appeal was not being considered.
Later in these meetings, the Ethics Committee will discuss moderators for the GCE Elders Forum and ask the Council to appoint men for the Member Appeal Committee.
Members on the Ethics Committee: Dan Dowd (chair), Bob Dick, Darris McNeely, Mario Seiglie and Tony Wasilkoff.
Church of God members have never had a real avenue of justice in the church when abusive church leaders assert their power over members. Usually, that justice was a swift kick out the door. These people will soon get a pretty little letter filled with UCG's version of we "love you, but we are not going to do anything about your accusations." As we are all well aware, no one exemplifies love more than the boys in Cincinnati.
