Bishop Paul Morton apologizes to the body of Christ after learning his spiritual son, Bishop Victor Couzens was in a sexual relationship with multiple women.
“I was recently made aware of a situation involving one of my spiritual sons, Bishop Victor Couzens, being involved in multiple relationships that caused me concern. I spoke with Bishop Couzens about his actions as they were not in alignment with the level of character I expect of pastors, especially one that is my spiritual son. He has repented and tendered his resignation as the Bishop of College of Elders of Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship,” Morton said in a statement.
Paul Morton also apologized to the women involved.
“Though I understand the relationships were consensual, I want to also offer an apology to the young ladies involved as well as the body of Christ for this situation.”
Here is what we know:
The Ohio pastor was in a sexual relationship with NY model, Andrea Garrison, but got engaged to another woman and allegedly lied about the nature of his relationship with Garrsion.
In an interview with The Christian Post Garrison revealed intimate details about her relationship with the Ohio pastor.
She said she was intimate with him as recently as three weeks ago and was led to believe that she and the megachurch preacher began a steady relationship in April after enjoying an on-and-off sexual relationship since 2011.
She was devastated to learn recently, however, that her relationship with the pastor was not exclusive.
“I never knew that there was another girl [fiancee’]. As far as I knew, whenever I would ask he would always say I was the only one. He didn’t want me sleeping with anybody else. He didn’t want me doing this. He didn’t want me doing that. I was the only one. He would fly me out constantly between New York and Cincinnati. He would fly me out to Miami. You know we would spend more time together, he would have me come to the house for like a week. I would cook, clean, do laundry,” Garrison shared with Larry Reid Live.
She also posted a FB Live video to share her truth.
Bishop Couzens is the Senior Pastor of the Inspirational Baptist Church located in Cincinnati, OH.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][td_block_ad_box spot_id=”sidebar”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
