Baptist Press reports:
Clayton King, a ministry leader and teaching pastor at NewSpring Church in South Carolina, is serving as the multi-site church’s interim after the termination of founding pastor Perry Noble.
Noble, in a Facebook video June 13, stated, “I am sorry that I allowed a dependency on alcohol. I ran to it other than Jesus for my comfort, and that was wrong … and I am going to do whatever it takes to make it right.
“I am checking into a treatment facility and going to work with some excellent people who are really going to help me take my next steps. I’m serious about fighting for my wife and my daughter and I’m serious about following Jesus.”
