Ted Haggard, the former pastor of New Life Church in Colorado Springs and former head of the National Association of Evangelicals who resigned in 2006 after a sex scandal, was the featured guest Sunday at MyChurch in Midland, according to My-Church’s Web site.
Haggard took part in an interview format with the pastor, the Rev. Jeff Murphy, rather than delivering a sermon. Haggard was part of a current church series, “2nd Chance,” the Web site and Murphy’s Twitter account states.
In November 2006, Haggard resigned from all of his leadership positions after he admitted soliciting a gay prostitute for sex and methamphetamine.
After the scandal went public, Haggard entered three weeks of intensive counseling, overseen by four ministers.
Earlier this year, Haggard told the Washington Post he calls himself “heterosexual with issues.”
Murphy was formerly on staff at Cascade Hills and more recently lived in the Atlanta area and in Virginia.
On his Twitter account Sunday evening, Murphy said: “Never been more excited about the future of what God could do through MyChurch. We have great days ahead being ‘the church.’”
