Statement on Dr. Anthony Moore

Video Transcript 

Dear Cedarville family,

I was motivated by the love of others, desire to radically live out the Gospel in my own life, and a prayer to see James 5:19 happen. I’m sorry that I brought Anthony Moore to Cedarville University. I did not know all the information at first. When we learned the new information, we took the action needed. Dr. Moore violated our agreement. There are no other plans for restoration like this on campus.

Even though no incidents were reported by students, I’m recommending to the Board of Trustees that we hire an outside, independent agency to confirm that nothing inappropriate occurred on our campus, with that report to go directly back to the Board of Trustees.

Cedarville University will strengthen our resolve to continue to be a safe place for our students and future students. We will learn our lessons. This summer, I and other key leaders will go through victim prevention awareness and advocacy training.

Would you pray for me as the Lord works on my heart to mold me into the man of God He wants me to be? Would you pray for Cedarville University as we walk through this difficult time?

Thank you.
