Worship pioneer Kevin Prosch restored to public ministry
AMERICA'S internationally known worship leader Kevin Prosch has been restored to public ministry, three years after admitting to a string of affairs. Prosch, whose popular recordings include 'Come To The Light' and 'Reckless Mercy', is being "released for public ministry without reservations" by the church that oversaw his restoration process. Kit Buschman, president of the Trinity Fellowship Association of Churches based in Amarillo, Texas, said that Prosch had served on staff with a member congregation for more than a year, during which time leaders had seen his "passion for righteousness and godly character."
Widely recognized as one of the leading figures in contemporary worship, Prosch shocked many when he stepped down in April 1999 after admitting to having "committed adultery and used my gifting to manipulate the women involved...for my own selfish gain and personal pleasure." In an open letter to the Christian community he expressed his remorse to his ex-wife, family, friends and others for "disappointing and hurting you."
Buschman said in a statement that he and others had seen in Prosch, now remarried, "the character, giftings and anointing as a man of God." They believed that "God has fully restored Kevin and the Church should also."
