Terry MacAlmon leaves worship minister after extra-marital affair revelation

SINGER, pianist and worship leader Terry MacAlmon, who has risen to prominence through his appearances on Christian TV working with such figures as Benny Hinn, has announced that he is stepping down from ministry after having had an extra-marital affair. MacAlmon wrote in a letter to ministry supporters, "I don't have a timeline as to if or when I will return to ministry, but I know I cannot go forward with my soul in this condition."

MacAlmon's wife Greta said she planned to file for legal separation, saying counselling and a restoration process had failed. She said, "At this time Terry has chosen to leave his family, these [counselling] relationships and the ministry," adding that she believes MacAlmon will one day be restored. CR

Hi Terry, I was so drained the other night and you came up in my Spirit so I looked you up on youtube. I spend almost the whole night in prayer in worship. The anointing was so strong, my words were tears for hours as I worshiped along with you, video after video. Especially, "Even So". None of us can judge you, I want to encourage you to continue to minister as a the Bride's Ambassador to heaven. You remind me of David a man after God's own heart. Your worship is pure, genuine, intimate. I believe in these last days before the coming of the Lord, There is a special Grace for the Body of Christ to become a extremely intimate with the Son of God. I asked the Lord the other day. I'm always asking you to come and meet my needs and comfort me. But I asked him let me comfort you Lord, he grieves over mankind, those who have not given there lives to him. He knows there true destiny and he wants everyone to make it into heaven. May our Worship comfort heaven. May the Lord continue to use you my brother. I'll be praying for you, your ministry, your ex-wife and your new wife and family. While I keep a watch on my walk with Jesus Christ, I've been devoted to my wife but I can never get in pride, it's by God's grace that we remain faithful to him and our spouses. Russell Moore, if you ever want someone to just listen and pray. I would like for you to come to our church in Minister one day. We are in Los Angeles, CA.

Terry,
I so love your ministry. It leads me to the throne room of our lovely Saviour.
I have been a Christian for around sixty years and have lots of intimate times very special ones with the Lord, but your music is so anointed. I feel so close to him
I am greatly blest. Please carry on and accept the Lords forgiveness for you.
We love you.
Irene

Dear Terry,

God gives gifts without repentance, So, If he has freely forgiven you, Who am I not to forgive.? I still listen to your praise music and still feel the annointing. It has NEVER BEEN ABOUT YOU OR ME , ONLY HIM!
If we all can remember that , we can all forgive more freely! Accept HIS forgiveness and allow God to heal all of your lives and move on to obey Him in whatever He calls you to. You did not take God by surprise! He knew all about you before the beginning of time and He is NOT THROUGH WITH YOU !!!!!!!!!

OOOOOH my dear friend Terry really happened, but you can still get restored.God is God of mercy, thus He is always called "MERCY"

Dear Terry and family my heart goes out to you all, God knows all about us and how our lives will span out on earth and we also know and agree before we come here what we are taking on.He also knows we all sinners,and that the devil tempts us every second of the day as humans we are not Perfect. The pain we feel when we hurt God/and our loved ones I know is unbearable I believe the torment for our sin feels like hell in our minds. Forgive yourself as God does. You give us all World Wide so much pleasure in your gifts of music/voice from the Holy Spirit. Believe in all the love of God/ joy/ happiness you bring taking people like me also a repentant sinner on a journey to The Lord's Throne. May God heal /Bless you and your family always Thank you Terry for all your hard work and honesty. Cynthia from UK

I don't understand how can one be lifted of the Lord and turn around to ashamed the Lord into sexual sin...I read this article with tears...remember David.....

It is as simple as someone's choice. You can be extremely close to God and still make the wrong choice. No one is exempt and everyone has to be very careful that they follow What God Says at all times because a second later you could make the same bad choice as someone else you thought you'd never act like.
