Three months after Bruxy Cavey, the pastor of one of Canada’s largest churches, one of the country’s most recognizable religious leaders, and also a rank heretic was put on leave by his board pending an external investigation after a woman came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct, the disgraced pastor has now resigned after being asked to leave by the church’s board. When asked why he was allowed to resign rather than terminated, the church board explained:
“The board unanimously decided that Bruxy’s employment was coming to an end effective immediately whether he resigned or was terminated. Giving him the option to resign provided the opportunity for him to demonstrate responsibility, and that’s the reason why.”
Cavey was pastoring the Meeting House, a 5000-member multi-campus megachurch in Oakville, ON. He is also a false teacher, who denies penal substitutionary atonement, biblical inerrancy, the eternality of hell, has an unbiblical view of the sin of homosexuality, and displays an affinity for open-theism.

Official as of March 3rd, he was put on an initial leave of absence in mid-December 2021 after a woman came forward with allegations that they’d had a sexual relationship for years. Being that he was “terminated,” it is likely he will receive a substantial severance package.
During a Townhall held on Tuesday night, the church shared with members a few details of what has occurred:
“Early December that allegations of sexual misconduct were made against Bruxy Cavey. As soon as this information came to the attention of the overseers board the overseers put him on a leave of absence, and the church retained an external independent third party investigator to conduct a thorough investigation into the allegations, and to provide the overseers board with the findings. The investigator’s work is now complete.
Over the last number of days the overseers have read the report and we’ve taken time to pray and process the information to determine the subsequent outcome. The investigator determined that Bruxy had maintained a sexual relationship with the victim, an adult woman, in the violation of The Meeting House policy and The Handbook On Faith And Life of Be In Christ Church Of Canada. The investigator also found that what became a sexual relationship between Bruxy and the victim, which lasted over an extended period of time, constituted an abuse of Bruxy’s power and authority as a member of the clergy, and amounted to sexual harassment. Having carefully reviewed the investigator’s report, our board unanimously decided to ask Bruxy to resign from his role at The Meeting House effective immediately. Bruxy then submitted his resignation on March 3rd, which the overseers accepted.
The Meeting House stands against sexual sin, sexual harassment, and abuse of power and authority….Bruxy’s pastoral credentials with the denomination have been removed.”
With the news of his departure, teaching false pastrix Danielle Strickland also announced she was leaving as an act of solidarity with the victim, who she believes has not been treated well by the church throughout the whole affair:
I’ve resigned my position as teaching pastor @TheMeetingHouse in solidarity with the victim of abuse. I’ll be releasing a statement from her on Wednesday when the leadership releases their statement to the church body.— Danielle Strickland (@djstrickland) March 7, 2022
The church addressed this as well, writing that they had fully complied with what a reputable third-party investigation had concluded, but that Strickland wasn’t happy with the language they used and wanted them to go further, lamenting their choice to limit their verbiage to what was in the report.
“From the day the victim came forward on November 30th with the allegations of sexual misconduct, we acted immediately. We put Bruxy on a leave of absence. We communicated very transparently about the allegations with our church community and retained the external independent third-party investigator to conduct a thorough investigation into the allegations, and to provide the overseers’ board with the findings.
We purposely chose to go with a very experienced, well-respected, external third-party investigator. The investigator, Catherine Milne, is experienced in trauma-informed investigations, and took a trauma-informed approach to this investigation. It was important for us to handle the situation with integrity and transparency. We did not limit the scope of the investigation.
The victim met with the investigator three times. The investigator prepared a detailed statement of allegations, based on what the victim wanted investigated. The victim reviewed the statement of allegations and made extensive revisions before it was finalized. The victim knew what the investigation was about. She fully participated in the investigation and was not silenced…
The investigator found that what became a sexual relationship between Bruxy and the victim, which lasted over an extended period of time, constituted an abuse of Bruxy’s power and authority as a member of the clergy, and amounted to sexual harassment. Bruxy, as the person in the relationship with power and authority as her pastor, had the responsibility to ensure that their pastoral and counseling relationship never grew into a sexual relationship.
Danielle has been a valuable friend and advocate to the victim, and based on Danielle and the victim’s understanding of the victim’s experience, they would like us to use stronger language that goes beyond what was found in the report. It was important to us to maintain the integrity of the independent third-party nature of the investigation by sticking with the findings of the investigator, which is what we have shared with you this evening.”
