Matt Chandler Restored to Ministry After Three Months

posted on December 6, 2022

Daniel Silliman of Christianity Today reports, “Matt Chandler returned to the pulpit of The Village Church on Sunday, restored to ministry by the Texas church’s elders a little more than three months after he took a leave of absence to deal with what one elder called ‘some challenges that arose.’” Chandler stepped down in August citing an inappropriate online relationship with a woman which he claimed was neither sexual nor secret. Neither Chandler nor the elders shared details of what the restoration process during his leave of absence entailed. He said in his first sermon on Sunday, “I’ve got a part of this I’ve got to own. It might just be 1 percent, but that’s my 1 percent. Forgive me. Now we’ve got a shot at reconciliation.”
