(ChurchLeaders) Pastor Micahn Carter, who had been undergoing “ministerial restoration” at Alabama’s largest megachurch, has resigned following a rape allegation by an assistant at his former congregation.
Micahn Carter Resigns
In a statement last week, Birmingham-based The Church of the Highlands announced:
In 2019, Micahn Carter’s Pastoral Overseers from Washington state asked Church of the Highlands to assist them in directing a ministerial restoration process for him. Highlands agreed to do so, and since then we have been working with Micahn and his family. Recently, Highlands received correspondence raising new allegations about events that occurred over two years ago in Washington state. When we shared this information with the Carters, they resigned from their positions on staff to work through these issues themselves. Highlands is no longer involved in the restoration process.
The “new allegations” are from Mary Jones, who had served as Carter’s assistant at Together Church in Yakima, Washington. On July 21, she came forward by detailing sexual abuse accusations against her former boss. Her blog post is now making the rounds on the internet.
