For more than 40 years, Sovereign Grace Ministries was a haven for evangelical Christians from around the D.C. metro region. With congregations numbering in the thousands, SGM’s churches — including Sovereign Grace Church in Fairfax, Va. and Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, Md. — created insular communities led by a patriarchal hierarchy. But according to a Washingtonian magazine investigation, SGM’s leadership allegedly suppressed years of child sexual abuse within in its membership and actively discouraged victims from notifying police. Kojo learns more about what happened inside two of this powerful organization’s local churches, and explores the legal and personal fallout for those who filled its pews.
