Noun. A hug from a member of the church clergy or staff to a member of the congregation in a manner that intentionally maintains distance from any private parts or unwanted contact.
Used especially by responsible adult leaders of youth programs where contact must be strictly controlled, so the leadership runs little to no risk of being branded a priest
Older, Married, Male Church Volunteer: "I think you're awesome, Female Teenager at the Church. Give me a good Christian Hug."
Female Teenager at the Church: "Thanks, Older, Married, Male Church Volunteer. You don't creep me out like the guys at my old church did. You rock."
