Top Gospel Singer “Credibly Accused” Of Child Sex

The Christian Post reports:

A new report details allegations of sexual misconduct against well-known contemporary Christian music singer and songwriter Chris Rice, who reportedly engaged in “massages” with underage boys and invited them to stay overnight at his home.

Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment, a leading Evangelical organization specializing in “empowering Christian communities to recognize, prevent and respond to abuse” within religious organizations, released the results of an investigation into the claims against Rice Monday. The firm found the allegations “credible.”

Tates Creek Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, hired GRACE to investigate in 2020 after a former male member of the church’s youth group alleged that Rice sexually assaulted him while leading worship at youth and college retreats for the church between 1995 and 2003.
