Though the Rev. Tullian Tchividjian was retained as senior pastor at the influential Coral Ridge Presbyterian in South Florida, a large contingent is upset, signified by the recent resignation of two elders.
The two have accused Tchividjian and his officers of retaliating against members who tried to have him fired, criticisms that he and other officials have denied. An effort to oust Tchividjian failed.
Tchividijian was officially called as the senior pastor earlier this year to succeed the outspoken conservative James D. Kennedy, who was very traditional in leadership and worship philosophy. Tchividjian seems to have a more modern approach, which has ruffled feathers in the church. Tchividjian is the grandson of famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
