Gospel musician and Pastor Josh Laryea has reportedly quit the International Central Gospel Church to establish his church.
His new church, according to Zionfelix, is known as Charis International Church located at Cantonments in Accra.
The report continues to say Josh Laryea’s church was launched on June 18 this year — a few weeks after quitting ICGC Doxa Temple. Before his controversial exit, Josh Laryea was the minister in charge of the Doxa Temple of I.C.G.C. located at Labone Junction in Accra.
The church suspended the ‘Ngiboo’ hitmaker in March this year for an alleged “immoral conduct.” A letter dated March 29, 2017, issued by The Church Council said the decision was taken to suspend Rev Laryea after it received a report against the pastor.
The letter indicated that “The Presbytery has authorized the Disciplinary Committee to look into the allegations leveled against Rev. Laryea”.
It also added that “Rev. Josh Laryea is being withdrawn from the pulpit and thereby the Doxa Temple with immediate effect. This is to allow the Committee carry out its work uninterrupted.”
The Church Council noted that a new pastor will be assigned to the Doxa Temple and urged the pastor to fully co-operate with the leadership of the church in the investigation.
Sources close to the church remained tight-lipped on the details of the alleged “immoral conduct” when the issue came up.
