15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. KJV
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Statement On Arrest Of Pastor Michael Bryant
Last week, Michael Bryant, pastor of Hour of Restoration Church of God in Christ in Memphis, Tennessee, was arrested on charges of sexual battery against his 16-year-old stepdaughter. Pastor Bryant has since been suspended indefinitely from all of his ministerial duties. The Church of God in Christ does not tolerate such acts.
There has been a fair amount of inaccurate information in the media regarding this matter. The Church of God in Christ has never told the media that it had not made a decision as to whether Pastor Bryant would be removed from the pulpit. There is an internal process to handling matters of this kind that is being followed. We ask for your continued prayers for all of those affected by this matter, especially the teenage victim.
The Church of God in Christ has no further comment on this matter.
