Billy Graham's Grandson Deposed from Ministry; Tullian Tchividjian and His Wife Both Had Affairs

The grandson of Billy Graham -- considered by many Christians to be the most popular evangelist of our time -- has been deposed from ministry by his Florida mega church after both he and his wife admitted to having extra-marital affairs, the Christian Today website reports.

Tullian Tchividjian joined Coral Ridge Presbyterian church in 2009 and resigned in June this year after the affairs became public knowledge.

The church said he was deposed in order both to "protect the integrity of the Church from which his credentials were given while, at the same time, wrapping Tullian in the grace offered by Jesus Christ to all those who confess sin, pursue repentance, and desire restoration."

The American Presbyterian Church defines deposition as "the degradation of an officer from his office."
