A pastor at one of Canada’s largest churches has been accused of sexual misconduct and has been placed on leave while the church undertakes an external investigation.
Bruxy Cavey, who grew The Meeting House into a megachurch with some 5,000 people attending 19 campuses in the larger Toronto metropolitan area, was accused of sexual misconduct by a woman who reported it to the church’s board of directors last week.
Cavey taught at Fresno Pacific University Biblical Seminary as a lecturer for about 2 years before being removed from his position in a program shakeup in August 2018.
A news release from FPU at the time said the dismissal of Cavey and two other pastors resulted from concerns over the direction of the seminary and “some teaching positions of visiting lecturers.”
The chair of the Meeting House board, Maggie John, issued a statement on Thursday regarding the allegations.
“Bruxy has now been placed on a leave of absence while an external investigation takes place,” said John. “We take these allegations very seriously and are committed to a thorough and transparent process. We are praying through this situation.”
