Dino Rizzo, who pastors Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is stepping away from the pulpit for an undetermined amount of time. Recent reports indicate that the “spirituality board of Healing Place Church” determined that Rizzo required a time of sabbatical, and the pastor has accepted this plan. Rizzo and his wife, DeLynn, have served as lead pastors of Healing Place Church since its founding in 1993.
Charisma News provides additional details:
“I have not felt myself, spiritually, physically or emotionally for several months now,” says Rizzo, senior pastor of Healing Place Church. “My physically exhausted, spiritually depleted state has affected my decision-making, my family life and my ability to lead effectively.”
