Ted Haggard’s Church Set For New Leader

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that New Life Church has narrowed down it candidates to replace its disgraced former pastor, one who will be less concerned with political activity: “Brady Boyd, 40, is an associate senior pastor at Gateway Church in suburban Dallas, another well-known evangelical megachurch. He is scheduled to preach at New Life three times — Aug. 12, 19 and 26 — before the congregation votes Aug. 27 on whether to hire him as senior pastor … Boyd’s résumé indicates a man who is much more concerned with a church faced inward for healing than a church faced outward toward politics. He is not well-known nationally, and his selection may show that the leadership of New Life wants to strengthen its core evangelical role rather than regain prominence in the national political arena.”
