What happens if someone signs the statement, but later breaks the agreement?
As a general rule, the American Pastor Project does not exist to “police” doctrine, nor do we have the resources, or desire, to monitor what every signatory is teaching. With that said, in cases of obvious and public departure from the values held by our statement, the American Pastor Project reserves the right to remove signers at will that no longer fit the qualifications for the project. Whenever possible, prior to doing so, one of our team will attempt to reach out with concerns and allow signing pastors/churches the opportunity to clarify or correct their position.
How do I remove my signature or church name from the map locator?
If you need to remove your name or your church listing from the website, please write us at [email protected] and request removal from the site. Our team will follow up to confirm the process.
