We are deeply saddened by the recent disclosure from Pastor Sam Hinn! However, as Christians, we have the Bible to guide us when there is a failure.

Galatians 6:1 “Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.” Therefore our fervent goal and objective is full and complete healing and restoration.

Pastor Sam Hinn has been relieved of all ministry responsibilities and as the official board, we have outlined a restoration process. This process includes Pastoral and Professional Counseling, as well as a mandatory time out of ministry so that all fractures in both his personal and family life may be healed.

Although this will be a lengthy process, we are very hopeful and remain encouraged by the response of both Pastor Sam and his wife Erika.

We have asked for and received the counsel and leadership support of Pastor Ron Johnson of One Church in Longwood, Fla. He has committed to walk with us during this difficult season and to provide ongoing spiritual help and guidance.

We ask you to pray for Pastor Sam and Erika as well as our leadership team as we seek to navigate this trying season!

Thank You,

Official Board  “The Gathering Place”
