ATLANTA (AP) - Church officials in Georgia cite "inappropriate
sexual behavior" for the resignation of Trinity Chapel founding
pastor Jim Bolin.
The congregation of the 7,000-member church in Powder Springs was told of the resignation Sunday during an emotional 90-minute service. But no details about Bolin's behavior were released.
The announcement was made from the pulpit by Donald M. Walker, the state administrative bishop for the Church of God.
Church officials said the 56-year-old Bolin, who did not attend Sunday's service, will be inactive in the ministry while undergoing
Bolin's 32-year-old son, Jason Bolin, will take over as head pastor, assisted by his wife Sarah Bolin.
