Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:
Less than a week after the Hillsong board released a statement revealing its cofounder, Brian Houston, had sent inappropriate text messages to a staff member and spent time in a woman's hotel room, the board of the global megachurch has announced the longtime global senior pastor has resigned.
In a statement posted on its website Wednesday (March 23), the board said it had accepted Houston's resignation and acknowledged "there will be much emotion at this news."
Houston, 68, a New Zealand native, founded Hillsong Church with his wife Bobbie in the suburbs of Sydney in 1983. The Pentecostal powerhouse now boasts 30 locations around the world, with an average global attendance of 150,000 weekly. Hillsong's music program has produced some of the most popular worship songs used in evangelical churches around the world, including "Oceans," "What a Beautiful Name," and "Shout to the Lord."
Spiritual warriors Mario Murillo and Hank Kunneman both believe God is getting ready to move in a huge way, and it starts April 21-22 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Murillo says Awaken Oklahoma, set for the Mabee Center on the campus of Oral Roberts University, will be the spark for "something to fall," so believers need to prepare themselves for a mighty move of God.
"Tulsa is a reset button," Murillo says. "If any of you are thinking of missing that event or you don't understand that God spoke to me about this, listen up. God told me to go and rent the Mabee Center—8,000 seats—for two nights. A miracle service will take place the second night. It's definitely a reset button. I know I'm not going to be the same after that."
Gospel singer and songwriter LaShun Pace passed away Monday in Atlanta at the age of 60. A Pace family member confirmed the news to Atlanta-based WXIA News, adding that she died from organ failure after being on kidney dialysis for five years.

Pace also traveled with the Rev. Gene Martin and the Action Revival Team before finding solo success.
