Presbyterian seminary president resigns before misconduct verdict

Posted: Friday, May 19, 2000

SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (AP) -- The president of San Francisco Theological Seminary resigned days before a Presbyterian church tribunal convicted him on two counts of sexual misconduct.

The Rev. Donald McCullough wrote seminary trustees that he was stepping down because of ''inappropriate conduct'' before joining the school.

The clerk of San Francisco Presbytery said McCullough faced two charges of ''sexual abuse.'' McCullough and the seminary administration would not elaborate on the allegations.

A church source told the San Francisco Chronicle the trial stemmed from McCullough's involvement with two adult women staffers at a San Diego church he served.

A hearing to determine punishment is scheduled May 22.
