SPRINGFIELD -- The pastor of North Point Church made a surprise announcement Saturday as he has resigned his position.
The announcement was made during the church's 5 p.m. service.
A statement from North Point says Tommy Sparger confessed to a moral failure to the board of trustees Friday.
In the statement, the board says they are working on a plan for the congregation in both the short and long term, and that information will be released in the next few days.
North Point Church has one of the largest congregations in the Ozarks with services held on three campuses.
