Now that Perry Noble is fresh out of alcohol rehab, the Lord has something new and exciting in store for him. It won’t be pastoring a church because, according to 1 Tim 3:1-7, he is no longer qualified. So, what has God supposedly “shown him” regarding his future? Jeff Maples of Pulpit & Pen has the details:
Disgraced former pastor of Newspring Church in Anderson, SC, says God is calling him back to the ministry–except this time, he’s in it for the business. After losing his job last year as senior pastor of the seeker-friendly megachurch for years of alcohol-related transgressions, he vowed to return to ministry after a 30-day rehab program and turning himself over to a therapist. He has kept his promise and is now offering what he calls a “consultation ministry,” dubbed The Growth Co., in which he will be offering to come alongside businesses and churches to help them grow.
“I am ready to take the next step in life and ministry…” the repeat alcoholic offender says,
After much thought, prayer and seeking godly and wise counsel I believe The Lord has clearly shown me I am supposed to step into church and business consulting.
