Ted Haggard to start new church in Colorado Springs
June 2, 2010
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Ted Haggard, the former megachurch pastor who fell from grace amid a sex scandal, is starting a new church in Colorado Springs.
Haggard made the announcement Wednesday during a news conference at his home, three weeks after he said he filed incorporation papers for a new church.
Haggard previously said he and his wife incorporated the church for accounting purposes but predicted they would return to some type of ministry one day.
Haggard resigned as senior pastor of the 14,000-member New Life Church after a male prostitute alleged Haggard paid him for sex over three years.
