As The Christian Post reported, the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) president Wayne Alcorn announced that both leaders have lost their credentials for at least two years.

“The next season for them is all about embracing God’s grace as it is outworked in their lives and families. We encourage you to pray for all concerned at this time,” Alcorn wrote in an email.

During this time, there will be an ongoing investigation where all allegations are considered.

Turner, the senior global pastor of Neuma Church, admitted on Facebook that he had been part of the immoral relationship with Hilliar. The post has since been deleted.

“Out of sincere respect to those who have known me, trusted me, and been connected in some way to my ministry as a Christian leader over the past 25 years, it’s important that I publicly confess that the recent allegations toward me of my engagement in a morally inappropriate relationship is regrettably true,” the Pentecostal pastor wrote on Facebook.

As Ministry Watch reported, Turner further acknowledged how he did not appropriately guard his heart to keep this situation from occurring.

“I didn’t sufficiently guard my heart, reach out for help from trusted spiritual fathers, take decisive action or get the necessary rest I needed. I have sinned against God, my family, and the church,” Turner said.

Neuma has churches in Australia, the U.S. and Thailand.
