Superintendent Resigns Because of “Sin”

MEDFORD, Ore. — A Christian school system is telling parents “a persistent sin issue” had nothing to do with any children or anything illegal. Parents received a letter from Grace Christian School’s governing body, the First Baptist Church Leadership Council, last week.

The letter explained to families Superintendent, Ray Johnson, chose to step down from school and church duties because of the quote “a persistent sin.”

The First Baptist Church Leadership Council will not comment further on the nature of the resignation. As with many Christian schools, employees at Grace Christian and Cascade Christian High School sign a contract agreeing to follow biblical principles, something the leadership council says former Superintendent Johnson violated.
