The pastor who barred church officials from using Facebook, saying it can lead to adultery, will take a 90-day sabbatical and return to his post, a church elder announced Sunday.
The decision follows the pastor’s admission that he engaged in a three-way sexual relationship a decade ago.
Rev. Cedric Miller, pastor of Living Word Christian Fellowship Church in Neptune, N.J., was chosen to remain the pastor of the church after the congregation voted.
According to the AP, the unanimous decision came after “prayer and thoughtful consideration” by the church’s board of elders, along with recommendations from other local pastors.
“We are confident that Pastor Cedric Miller is the man that God has chosen to lead this church into our destiny,” Associate Reverend Lind Parreott said. “After 90 days, Pastor Cedric Miller will resume his goal to be senior pastor of this church.”
