The president of the National Association of Evangelicals, an outspoken opponent of gay marriage, has given up his post while a church panel investigates allegations he paid a man for sex.
The Reverend Ted Haggard resigned as president of the 30 million (m) member association on Thursday after being accused of paying the man for monthly trysts over the past three years.
Haggard, a married father of five, denied the allegations, but also stepped aside as head of his 14,000-member New Life Church pending an investigation.
A spokeswoman for the New Life Church said a four-member church panel would investigate the allegations.
The board has the authority to discipline Haggard, including removing him from ministry work.
A senior pastor at New Life Church told KKTV-TV that Haggard admitted that some of the accusations were true.
The allegations come as voters in Colorado and seven other US states get ready to decide Tuesday on amendments banning gay marriage.
The allegations stunned church members.
One church member said: “My heart goes out to him and his family, to have to like deal with this right now. Cause I mean it’s just so ridiculous, and I can’t believe that he would even have to deal with something like this.”

In terms of the formation of a congregation, the Lutheran Christmas Church is the oldest Lutheran church in Palestine. It was formed in 1854 by German missionaries, which means the ministry is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. In 1886 the construction of the sanctuary of the Evangelical church was begun by the Germans. Some Americans of German origin, living in Philadelphia, PA, gave financial help. The church was completed in 1891 but could not be used for worship until it received a permit from the ruling government in Istanbul, seat of the Ottoman Empire. In 1893 Empress (Kaiserina) Augusta Victoria of Germany (wife of Emperor [Kaiser] Wilhelm II) visited Istanbul because there was a relationship between Germany and the Ottoman Empire. She was able to obtain the necessary permit for the Bethlehem church. The sanctuary was dedicated in 1893. The actual permit document exists today in the church; it is beautiful, written in the Ottoman script. In 1893 the church name was Evangelical Christmas Church (it was connected to the Lutheran and Reformed traditions). Not until 1947, through the efforts of Lutheran World Federation (LWF), did the church become named and recognized solely as a Lutheran church. The official name of the church since 1947 is the Evangelical Lutheran Christmas Church.
History of the Sanctuary
The windows in the church came from the Emperor Stained Glass Factory in Germany. They are in a unique style, similar to German windows, and made to reflect the Bethlehem and Holy Land environment. In the church chancel, at the front, are three windows depicting the Christmas story, complete with angels, shepherds and the Holy Family. At the left, in a shallow, rounded chapel, are three windows showing the life of Christ until his baptism, including the flight to Egypt, portraying Jesus and his family as refugees. This picture is particularly pertinent and poignant for the congregation of today because two-thirds of the people re refugees themselves. At the right, in another shallow, rounded chapel, are three windows portraying Jesus’ passion and resurrection, with the crucifixion in the center window. The remaining windows in the main church are related to Bethlehem’s biblical history and landscape.
Windows made by this factory in this style have been used around the world, but today the Bethlehem windows are the only ones to survive in total. This is an amazing fact for two reasons:
The church was bombed in the 1967 war and the roof and ceiling were damaged; and
The church was in the middle of fierce Israeli shooting and bombing in 2002.
People were under curfew in their homes and could hear glass breaking everywhere. Pastor Raheb, who lives with his family in the parsonage on the church compound, also could hear glass breaking and feared it was the stained glass windows. No one could get out to check until a few days later. When Pastor Raheb finally went into the church he was astounded and grateful to see that all the windows were unbroken and intact. There is one small hole in the red robe of a person in the left chapel windows, which is hardly noticeable but serves as a reminder of the frightening chaos and the damaging attacks in 2002.

New Year eve – 2017
It was in early 1991 that Pastor John Akers of First Free Evangelical Church requested a meeting with those who ministered at the abortion death camp in Rockford, Illinois. He asked us to “back off” for one month from ministering there while he tried to win those inside to Christ. We were doubtful, but complied. All of the other Rockford pro-life churches were extremely disconnected from being involved.
I am unsure of all nice things that were said and done for these baby-killers, but we learned much later that Wayne Webster and John Kaske (See God Mocking Baby-Killers) came before 1st Free’s congregation and parroted some drivel about their conversions to Christ. John Akers included this chapter in a book that he wrote in which he condemned us for not being winsome.
Webster and Kaske joked about this for sometime thereafter. We who ministered at these death camps felt betrayed. We decided to take the pictures of aborted babies to the Christian “pro-life” churches beginning with 1st Free. We were surprised at the hostility and rejection that we were met with.
