Assemblies of God Megachurch Pastor Fired
Over Misconduct Allegations

A Washington state Assemblies of God megachurch pastor was dismissed over misconduct allegations.

"My relationship with Assembly of God has been fractured," says Dean Curry, former pastor of Life Center Assembly of God in Tacoma. "This woman accused me of behavior that would have amounted to adultery if it were true."

The church's board of elders told congregation members they were recently made aware of Curry's alleged behavior toward a former church employee. Board spokesperson Caryl Andrews said the allegations involved physically inappropriate conduct.

According to the Tacoma News Tribune:

Andrews said board members asked for written details from the district office and received none. On June 21, leaders of the district office presented a plan to dismiss Curry as an Assembly of God minister, she said.

"We raised concerns about the thoroughness of the investigative process," she said. "We do believe that all people, women and men, deserve to be heard."

Andrews said the church board will begin the search for an interim pastor, review policies regarding employees and communicate with members when more information becomes available. Several speakers echoed past statements from Curry about the nature of the church, saying the church did not belong to Curry or the members—rather, they called it "a Jesus place."

Another speaker and church member, former NFL player Eric Boles, closed the short meeting with a prayer.

"There are people who are hurting on all sides of this, and we're praying for everybody," he said, to a chorus of amens.

"I have been falsely and wrongly accused," Curry says, and claims a continued investigation of his conduct would show "no damaging phone logs, no compromising emails or text messages."

Curry says did not get to defend himself to district officials in Seattle, but "I'm not going to allow myself to be bitter toward my accuser."
