BREAKING NEWS: Robert Morris Resigns as Pastor of Gateway Church

Robert Morris has resigned from Gateway Church.

The statement came from the Board of Elders of Gateway Church:

Today, June 18, the Board of Elders of Gateway Church accepted the resignation of Robert Morris, the senior pastor. In addition, the Board has retained the law firm of Haynes & Boone, LLP, to conduct an independent, thorough, and professional review of the report of past abuse to ensure we have a complete understanding of the events from 1982-1987.”

The statement noted that the “elders did not have all the facts of the inappropriate relationship between Morris and the victim, including her age at the time and the length of the abuse.”

Tony Evans’ Son on Controversy: ‘We Already Have Victory’

Tony Evans’ son, Jonathan Evans, took to the pulpit at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship for a special Father’s Day message where he expressed his feelings amid his father’s step away from ministry.

“People have been asking me all week, ‘How do you feel?’ Let me tell you, I feel like we’ve already won,” Evans says.

“I feel like we’re on offense, not defense. I feel like we already have victory. I feel like His Word is true. I feel like He’s going to finish the work that He started. I feel like if it’s not good yet, God’s not done yet,” he continues.

Was This Prophecy About Gateway Church Fulfilled? 

Has a prophecy about Gateway Church been fulfilled?

In a special prophetic message from last year, Troy Black shared a word from the Lord about Gateway Church and Gateway Worship.

“I heard this back on March 3, 2023, and I was in worship and I began to hear this word from the Lord,” Black says. “He said, ‘Gateway Church is under spiritual assault at the moment.’ He said, ‘The enemy is moving his forces around because he hates what is happening at Gateway and its sister churches.’”
