Andy Savage: Memphis pastor confesses to 'sexual incident,' gets standing ovation

Andy Savage: Memphis pastor confesses to 'sexual incident,' gets standing ovation Andy Savage: Memphis pastor confesses to 'sexual incident,' gets standing ovation

He told the host Thursday, "I am in full cooperation with our leadership at Highpoint".

"I'm going to be taking a leave of absence for the goal of cooperating with a third-party, independent firm that will come in and do an audit of my ministry, the policies that we work with at Highpoint, and get their assessment on my fitness for ministry", Savage said. Oh my God, I'm so sorry.

Savage said the day after the incident, he made a "partial confession" to Woodlands Park Baptist Church Associate Pastor Larry Cotton, saying only that he had kissed Woodson. She said he took her to an empty road and Savage assaulted her.

I know when you support Andy in that way, you are also supporting Ms Woodson. I asked him where he was going. I was scared and embarrassed, but I did it. "And I mean that'". "I don't remember his exact response, but it was something along the lines of "you'll see" or 'it's a surprise.'" Woodson alleges Savage exposed himself and asked her for oral sex before fondling her bare breasts. He fell to his knees and begged her to not tell anyone about what had just happened. You can't tell anyone Jules, please. "You have to take this to the grave with you.' He said that several times".

Andy Savage, teaching pastor at Highpoint Church, spoke about the controversy surrounding him in an hour-long radio interview on the Ben Ferguson Show in Dallas.

Even then, however, the church never "came out with an official statement addressing what had happened and/or what was being done about it", Woodsonsaid.

"To anyone who has suffered from sexual abuse in the church and the subsequent cover up and pressure to remain silent, I want you to know that it is not your fault". You are supporting her healing.

Earlier this week, Cotton was placed on a leave of absence by his current church in Austin, Texas, while it evaluates his role in the case through a third party, similar to what Savage described. "I regretfully had a sexual incident with a female high school senior in the church".

Andy Savage, a pastor at a Memphis megachurch, received a standing ovation after apologizing to a woman who said he assaulted her when she was a teenager.

Downline Ministries, a discipleship training group, has now removed Conlee from its speaking line-up for a conference in February as the fallout from the revelations about Savage's behaviour continue. "I was wrong and I accepted responsibility for my actions".

Savage, a father of five, added that "there has never been another situation remotely similar in my life before or after that occurrence".

"His apology isn't enough because number one, he's lying about how he handled it".

Instead they applauded him.

In a tearful telephone interview with the New York Times, Woodson said of the scenes, which were streamed live on the church's YouTube page: 'It's disgusting'.

"It's very hard to tell your story".
