Megachurch Pastor Zachery Tims’ congregation has called a special meeting to address rumors and speculation surrounding his weekend death in a New York City hotel room.
In an email obtained by Charisma News, New Destiny Christian Center staff has asked the congregation to come together on Monday evening:
“Today has been filled with rumors and speculations regarding Pastor Zach. We are having a meeting on tomorrow, Monday, Aug. 15th at 7:00pm. Please join us. We look forward to seeing you there.”
New York City police are probing Tims’ death. The W Hotel’s housekeeping staff found Tims dead on the floor of his hotel room, according to the Orlando Sentinel. It is not clear how long he was dead before the maids discovered his body, or the purpose of his trip to Manhattan.
New Destiny has more than 7,500 members that call a $34 million campus their church home. The ministry was rocked after Tims admitted to an extramarital affair, which ended in divorce in 2009.
