Causeway Coast Community understands that Jeff Wright has resigned from his position as 'lead pastor' at Green Pastures in Ballymena.
Sources close to the church told us that he made the announcement at end of service yesterday morning, Sunday 1st May 2022.
In 2007, the married father-of-three set up Green Pastures. The evangelical church's website describes him as its "lead pastor, founder and visionary"
Last week it was widely reported that eight senior members of the church stepped down amid reports of "internal governance issues".
We have contacted the church for further comment.
