Controversy Over Picking Zachery Tims' Successor

It was announced that the new pastor of New Destiny Christian Center would be announced New Year’s Eve. As the church eagerly awaits to confirm a new leader, one leader selected to help the church find Tims’ replacement is speaking out against the process.

The Bishop’s Committee Council was constructed to aid in the process of helping the church to install a new pastor in the wake of Dr. Zachery Tims’ untimely passing.

Highly publicized member of the council and megachurch pastor Bishop I.V. Hilliard of New Light Church in Houston recently resigned from the council as an initiative to maintain his integrity, choosing to part ways with the group that he feels has veered from its initial commitment.

“I was asked to be apart of a four bishop council, a committee of four bishops that would give wisdom and council and guidance to the board during their selection process,” Hilliard said.

In a special announcement, Hilliard spoke openly about his decision.

“Now after being involved for sometime in the process, I have decided to resign my position in this bishop’s council. Now my commitment to integrity will not allow me to support something that I believe is deceptive and that compromises previously agreed upon procedures and protocol.”
