Eunice and Owen Johns - Council reinstate application

Printer-friendly version
Committed Christian couple Eunice and Owen Johns have had their foster care application successfully reinstated by Derby City Council.

Committed Christian couple Eunice and Owen Johns have had their foster care application successfully reinstated by Derby City Council. The couple, who have fostered in the past and have raised four children, were initially told that their views on homosexuality were out of line with diversity standards, and had their application withdrawn . Throughout interviews with social services and meetings with the fostering panel, the Johns maintained their biblical approach to sexual ethics and said that they would love any child regardless of their sexual orientation. The Mayor of Derby is supporting the Johns, and, following intervention by the Christian Legal Centre and extensive media coverage, social services have agreed to reinstate the couples’ application. Please pray the couple will be approved to foster.
