Defendant in sexual abuse suit known nationally for work with Kanakuk, motivational speaker for Promise Keepers
Kanakuk Ministries President Joe White, the defendant in a lawsuit filed by the parents of a Texas boy who was molested at the Kanakuk Christian sports camp, is a nationally known motivational speaker who has spent considerable time working the Promise Keepers organization, as shown in the videos accompanying this post.
White is not accused of any sexual abuse, but the lawsuit charges him with negligence for not firing the molester, camp director Pete Newman, after 1999 and 2003 incidents in which Newman cavorted naked with underage boys.
Newman is serving two life sentences plus 30 years after pleading guilty to the sex crimes.
