Yesterday PATH reported the unfortunate resignation of Bishop Neil C. Ellis from the Full Gospel Fellowship. A resignation that also included withdrawing his church from associating with the denomination. Today the founder Bishop Paul S. Morton responds in an open letter to the Full Gospel Church Fellowship.
In it Morton says there is no split, and he re-affirms the confidence he has in Bishop Joseph W. Walker to lead Full Gospel in 2015. Morton has previously announced his retirement in 2015 naming Walker as his successor after a vote amongst Full Gospel Pastors.
Many are pointing to the voting process as the reason for Bishop Neil Ellis’ resignation. Ellis reportedly felt overlooked by Pastors who expressed concern with his location in the Bahamas being outside of the United States.
The following letter is from Bishop Paul S. Morton’s office.
