Christian Reformed executive forced to quit

Relationship "crossed professional boundaries"
A pastor who hosted the Back to God Hour radio program for the Christian Reformed Church was forced to resign only weeks before he would have started an indefinite term as top executive of the Michigan-based denomination.

Calvin L. Bremer, 57, admitted to using poor judgment in recommending a co-worker for a top fundraising post in the CRC, but he told the Grand Rapids Press that he had not done anything morally wrong.
