In October 2015, the administration of Southeast Christian Church first became aware of possible misconduct between Chris Hutchinson and a member of his former youth group from another local church. At the time of the investigation by the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office, Mr. Hutchinson served as the high school pastor at Southeast. There were no allegations of inappropriate conduct at Southeast nor any allegations of misconduct involving any youth at Southeast. Once we learned of the circumstances of the investigation, Mr. Hutchinson immediately resigned from his position at our Church. His resignation occurred before charges were filed and his subsequent arrest.
As a family, we continue to pray for all involved and affected by this matter and ask that our community pray for those harmed by these events.
