On 28 November, Isaac Hunter resigned from his position as pastor of Summit Church in Orlando after admitting that he had an affair with a former staff member. As was previously reported, two days following the resignation, Hunter’s wife filed and was granted a domestic violence petition and restraining order against her husband. The Orlando Sentinel reports that Hunter swiftly denied his wife’s allegations of abuse:
Isaac Hunter issued a statement late Tuesday afternoon denying his wife’s allegations that he posed a threat to her and their children.
“Never in my life have I threatened to harm my children in any way. Nor have I ever lifted a hand against my wife, harmed her physically, or threatened to do so,” said Isaac, 35, the son of megachurch pastor the Rev. Joel Hunter.
