CNN Belief Blog

Fort Lauderdale, Florida (WPLG Miami) The senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale has resigned after confessing to cheating on his wife, according to WPLG Miami , which disqualifies him from continuing his leadership role at the church.

Pastor Bob Coy, 58, reportedly confessed a “moral failing which disqualifies him from continuing his leadership role at the church” to  Calvary leaders on Wednesday. A board meeting was called the next day, when he resigned.

Coy, who has led the church since its founding in 1985, said he will now focus his full attention on his personal relationship with God and his family. The radio, television and digital media that distributes Coy’s teachings have also been suspended.

“The governing board of the church is providing counselors and ministers who will help guide him through the process of full repentance, cleansing and restoration,” Calvary Chapel said in a statement.
