4.2 Church personnel must not exploit the trust placed in them by the faith community for sexual gain or intimacy.
4.3 Church personnel, because they are in positions of power or authority, must be particularly careful to avoid sexual misconduct, including the possession or distribution of pornography in the workplace. Church personnel should avoid even the appearance of sexual misconduct.
