Sovereign Grace Ministries

A lawsuit in Montgomery (Maryland) County Circuit Court accuses past and current members of the 100-church Sovereign Grace Ministries of covering up sexual abuse of minors, forcing small children to “forgive” abusers, and ostracizing families that would not hide the alleged crimes. Former coleader Larry Tomczak is among the churches and individuals charged, he with forcing a victim, over a period of 25 years, to strip “against her will” and assaulting her.
