Another prominent minister toppled in Fort Lauderdale this weekend, as the senior pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church agreed to resign following revelations of an extramarital affair.
Tullian Tchividjian, grandson of Billy Graham, said he was “heartbroken and devastated” to learn that his wife Kim had been having an affair and said he “sought comfort in a friend and developed an inappropriate relationship myself,” according to a statement he gave to the Washington Post.
Oddly, the article ends with a reference to the Dallas Cowboys, which doesn’t really add anything to the story.
At Coral Ridge, Executive Pastor Rob Pacienza referred inquiries to statements the church has posted on its website.
He briefly met a reporter and photographer in a room with a framed jersey for former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman.
“Tullian likes them,” Pacienza said of the Cowboys.
