Liberate Ministry, an outreach of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, has announced that it will closing following Tullian Tchividjian’s admission of having an extramarital affair. 

 

Christian Today report Tchividjian, the grandson of Billy Graham, confessed to having an inappropriate relationship with a friend last week. He then stepped down from his position as senior pastor of Coral Ridge, a large church in south Florida. 

 

Tchividjian founded Liberate Ministry to connect “God’s inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world.” 

 

But in a statement posted to the ministry’s website announced its temporary closure. 

 

"Coral Ridge very much believes in the message of God's 'good news' of grace to a broken and burned out world. Considering Pastor Tullian's recent resignation as senior pastor of CRPC after admitting moral failure, it is with heavy hearts that our Church Leadership has come to the conclusion to temporarily close Liberate,” the website said. 

 

Tchividjian has apologized for his behavior and asked for prayer for his family.
