Gina Pearson has filed for divorce from her traveling evangelist husband, Bishop Carlton Pearson, according to court documents.
Charisma News has obtained copies of the divorce papers, which were filed in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Aug. 25.
The papers cite "incompatibility issues which has completely destroyed the legitimate aims of the marriage of the parties and rendered its continuation impossible by reason of which petitioner is entitled to dissolution of marriage from respondent," for the dissolution of the marriage.
Carlton Pearson is an award-winning vocalist and fourth-generation Pentecostal preacher, according to his website.
"Today Pearson's ministry targets specifically and primarily the 'un or less-churched.' He makes his appeal to those who feel spiritually unresolved. His ministry now addresses issues of spiritual, social, moral, cultural, religious and political significance in a practical, yet provocative manner relating faith to culture. He likes to call himself a Sacred Activist and Spiritual Progressive and is a strong proponent of Justice and Peace issues," his website reads.
He attended Oral Roberts University before he founded New Dimensions ministries.
Carlton Pearson has come under fire for his "gospel of inclusion" message, claiming there is no hell.
Messages left for Carlton Pearson were not immediately returned.
