BJU and GRACE will meet next week to discuss their differences and, both parties claim, to attempt reconciliation and the resuming of the investigation.
The dismissal of GRACE by BJU made national headlines this week, and pressure from the media and alumni doubtless played a role in BJU’s haste to attempt a resolution to the dispute.
During the past week, representatives of GRACE and BJU have continued to
communicate for the purpose of working out a time for an in-person meeting. The parties
were recently able to schedule such a meeting for next week. The purpose of this
meeting is for the parties to articulate expressed concerns, as well as to dialogue about the
possibility of GRACE completing the independent investigation process started last year.
GRACE will post another update shortly after the meeting next week.
We ask for prayers for everyone involved in this upcoming meeting. We also ask that we
continue to pray for God to work mightily on the behalf of all the amazing individuals
who have been impacted by this most recent development.
Bob Jones University and GRACE will meet next week to discuss the concerns of both parties and determine a plan for moving forward.
Bob Jones University and GRACE remain hopeful this project can be completed with GRACE and in so doing raise sexual abuse awareness and minister to victims whose lives have been ravaged by abuse.
