A Fort Lauderdale pastor who resigned from the helm of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church over an extramarital affair has broken his silence following the “worst external decision I had ever made in my life.”
Tullian Tchividjian, 43, the grandson of evangelist Billy Graham, first addressed his Facebook followers in late July with a note about the darkness that had consumed him and the light he’s now attempting to shed on his fragile, broken self.
“Grace always flows to the lowest point, and while it scares me to death because I’m a lot more image-conscious than I let on, I’m going to let you see me at the bottom — because that’s where Jesus is,” he wrote.
Tchividjian has also opened up and reflected on his downfall during a podcast released Wednesday by the Vanderbloemen Search Group, a pastoral search firm.
After discovering his wife, Kim Tchividjian, had had an affair, the couple separated and the head pastor then “ended up getting involved with a girl that I should not have, obviously,” he said.
