“While Rev. Cavey has a larger public profile than most, our posture is still the same as it would be for all our Pastors,” Charles Mashinter, executive director of Be In Christ, said in a statement to Religion News Service.

“We desire reconciliation and healing for any who may experience harm involving one of our clergy. Support has been provided for those directly involved as well as counseling for those deeply affected by this news. When the investigator has concluded their work and delivered their report we, will determine next steps in keeping with these values.”

Cavey gained a following through his sermons and his YouTube videos in which he would answer questions about Christianity, according to City News.

In 2018, California-based Fresno Pacific Bible Seminary, which belongs to the Mennonite Brethren denomination, removed Cavey as a guest lecturer after donors raised concerns over his theology.

In 2019, a pastor in Regina, the capital of Canada’s Saskatchewan province, resigned after church leaders were told he had abused his power to harass women in his congregation.
