It's pretty obvious now that since church members and Riva Tims have thrown a monkey wrench in their plans to announce Paula White as their new pastor on News Year's day. Instead, NDCC administrators have already confirmed the news in a press release on Thursday.
"We celebrate the continuation of a vision, a vision launched back in 1996 with the founding of New Destiny Christian Center as a non-denominational church with a multi-cultural mission," a statement attributed to Board of Directors member Elder Marguerite Esannason, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
"We prayed fervently for guidance during our search which led us to ask Pastor Paula White to take over as Senior Pastor," Harold Fuller, acting chairman of the Board of Directors, said in a statement. "...We earnestly know that the Lord led us to select Pastor Paula White."
"...We believe Pastor Paula will continue to make New Destiny a church for all people..."
Paula White, who has been divorced twice and has a string of financial issues, will reportedly be a non-voting member of NDCC's Board of Directors and will answer to directors as well as the Board of Regents.
