John D Rempel

On 20 October 2020, The Mennonite Church Eastern Canada (MCEC) announced the termination of the ministerial credentials of John D. Rempel following an investigation into multiple complaints of ministerial sexual misconduct. We are conscious that the latest issue of Anabaptism Today contains reference to John’s work in a reflection by Eleanor Kreider and a review of John’s latest book by Andrew Francis. The editor and the editorial board were unaware of these allegations prior to the announcement by MCEC on 20 October. Our hearts go out to all affected and we pray for both healing and justice for all the victim-survivors and for wisdom for all involved in ongoing counselling in connection with all those who are impacted.
