Gary Lamb announced that he’s resigning from pastoring Revolution Church in GA because he has been having an affair with his married personal assistant, Elena, for the last six weeks.
Ten months ago, she and her husband caught his eye.
Speaking of the next generation of world changers…..We have a very cool young couple who have been attending Revolution for a while now. Kyle and Elena Stoeckig have been in ministry at some pretty cool churches in the past and God has them hanging out in Canton for a while as they get ready for the next leg. They are praying about starting a church in downtown Atlanta and I’m praying God keeps them around Canton for a while longer. Pray for them as they seek God will for their next steps!
Seven weeks ago, Lamb chronicled a bit of a staff reshuffle in his church. From April 19:
Elena Stoeckig who is on our staff is going to be assisting in my office. She’s great at what she does, I trust her, and she has thick skin to put up with me.
Crap, I’ll probably steal her from Tim permanently. There aren’t many advantages to being the pastor, but there are some.
Then six weeks ago, he moved in:
I have officially stolen Elena from Tim as my new assistant….
I think she is going to do a great job. She’s very sharp, pretty tough, and has a heart for ministry.
(If anyone ever sees an apology to, or request for prayer for, either of the Stoeckigs from Lamb, direct us to it in the comments.)
