The Rev. Mark Crow, founder of the multisite Victory Church in Oklahoma, resigned Tuesday “after confessing to marital unfaithfulness,” said Executive Pastor Dale Swanson in a statement.
“The Victory Church family and staff are praying for Mark, that the same grace we all experience and draw comfort from in our own spiritual journey, will be ever present in Mark’s transition to healing and wholeness,” Swanson continued.
Crow, a televangelist who is well-known because of his connection to Oral Roberts University, founded Victory Church with his wife, Jennifer, in 1994.
“Mark will be focusing his full attention on his personal relationship with God, and beginning the process of bringing healing to the fractured relationships in his life and family. Victory Church is fully committed to providing the counselors and ministers who will guide him through the process of reconciliation with God, and ensuring the best possible outcome for this next season in his life,” Swanson added.
The multisite church draws more than 8,000 people each weekend.
