In a statement toThe Washington Post, Tchividjian said that he discovered his wife was having an affair a few months ago. While he was on a leave of absence from his church, he ended up finding "comfort in a friend and developed an inappropriate relationship myself."
He went on to say that church leaders questioned him about his affair, and after he admitted to it, both sides decided it would be best if he resigned.
Tchividjian has been married to his wife, Kim, since 1994. They have three children.
NBC Newsreported that no successor has been named.
Tchividjian founded Liberate, an evangelical ministry that, according toNBC News, focuses on God's grace and the forgiveness of sin.
Tchividjian is the son of Graham's oldest daughter, Virginia.
