Ted Haggard, the New Life Church founder who fell from grace amid a sex scandal, has called a news conference to make an announcement. The announcement is planned today at Haggard's Colorado Springs home, three weeks after Haggard said he and wife Gayle had filed incorporation papers for a new church.
Haggard has said they incorporated the church for accounting purposes but predicted they would return to some type of ministry one day.
Haggard resigned as senior pastor of the 14,000-member New Life Church and as president of the National Association of Evangelicals in 2006 after a male prostitute alleged Haggard paid him for sex over three years. Haggard confessed to "sexual immorality."
The Haggards held two prayer meetings at their home last year.
