Black Pastor Reggie Weaver of Mostly White Greenboro Church On leave After admitting an Extra-Marital Affair

If people think a black pastor with a Caucasian wife and a predominately white church was a making of a ‘cum-by-yah’ statement, think again. These pastors commit sin too. We are sure the church was fooled by his dumbfounded looking appearance that he was so different but his no different from any other pastor who gets caught up in an affair though preaching every, single Sunday morning.

Here’s the story below and his statement about the affair and leaving the church for now:

The senior pastor of one of the city’s largest and most progressive churches has been put on paid leave after confessing to an extramarital affair in the nine months since his arrival.

In an apology letter to his congregation, the Rev. Reggie Weaver of Westminster Presbyterian Church said the woman is not a member of the congregation, and he and his wife, Ashley-Anne Masters, have begun the process of divorce.

“I have violated my ordination vows and my wedding vows,” the 33-year-old Weaver wrote in a letter, which was mailed to the congregation on Friday by the Salem Presbytery, the regional governing body for local Presbyterian (U.S.A.) churches. “I am sorry and I ask your forgiveness.”

Weaver’s letter also referenced an “emotional affair” with a woman in Chicago prior to moving to Greensboro, during the time he was being considered to lead the 2,000-member church here, which is known for its outreach to the community and mission work abroad.

When the predominantly white Westminster Presbyterian hired Weaver, the church was praised for hiring its first African-American minister. We assume they feel some kind of way now.
