The Delmar Dilemma: Wrong If You Do, Wrong If You Don't
The Greater Ester Theological Mission (GETM) is a church of 3,500 members located in a politically divided community. The church includes traditional religious activities and three nonprofit corporations. This complex organization is headed by a fifteen member Board of Deacons that serve as the Corporate Directors and policy leaders for all components.
The church operates a nationally recognized childcare center, serving children of every economic strata. The center depends upon a Delmar County grant to subsidize over 60% of the children. Controversy has arisen with the admission of a convicted child molester to the church that also serves in one of the on-campus nonprofit corporations.
