Robert Morris has resigned from Gateway Church.

The statement came from the Board of Elders of Gateway Church:

Today, June 18, the Board of Elders of Gateway Church accepted the resignation of Robert Morris, the senior pastor. In addition, the Board has retained the law firm of Haynes & Boone, LLP, to conduct an independent, thorough, and professional review of the report of past abuse to ensure we have a complete understanding of the events from 1982-1987.”

The statement noted that the “elders did not have all the facts of the inappropriate relationship between Morris and the victim, including her age at the time and the length of the abuse.”

With previous references to a “young lady,” the board did not realize Morris’ “extramarital relationship” was actually the abuse of a child.
