NDCC Church Board Announces Paula White as New Pastor Today

It’s pretty obvious now that since church members and Riva Tims have thrown a monkey wrench in their plans to announce Paula White as their new pastor on News Year’s day. Instead, NDCC administrators have already confirmed the news in a press release on Thursday.

“We celebrate the continuation of a vision, a vision launched back in 1996 with the founding of New Destiny Christian Center as a non-denominational church with a multi-cultural mission,” a statement attributed to Board of Directors member Elder Marguerite Esannason, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

“We prayed fervently for guidance during our search which led us to ask Pastor Paula White to take over as Senior Pastor,” Harold Fuller, acting chairman of the Board of Directors, said in a statement. “…We earnestly know that the Lord led us to select Pastor Paula White.”

“…We believe Pastor Paula will continue to make New Destiny a church for all people…”

Paula White, who has been divorced twice and has a string of financial issues, will reportedly be a non-voting member of NDCC’s Board of Directors and will answer to directors as well as the Board of Regents.

The board also is seeking the church to come together and support White as the new pastor in this statement from OS:

“We know that times of transition and change can often bring questions, concerns and uncertainties,” Fuller said. “But we ask that all of our brethren in Christ would unite in prayer and support of Pastor White and to work with her to move our great church forward into a promising new future. Together we will continue to accomplish great things in the name of the Lord.”

In a statement to the Orlando Sentinel, White said:

“I will come to my new assignment with a servant’s heart, humbled by this great responsibility and grateful for the confidence the board has shown in naming me Senior Pastor. I will work tirelessly each day to ensure that the mission of this church is fulfilled and that its ministry and congregation remain united and strong.”

So, this is what the new year looks like for churches like New Destiny Christian Center and Jericho City of Praise: full of deception, power struggling and church mayhem? God, please help them all.
