Former Hillsong pastor Sam Collier and his wife Toni are getting divorced, with both sides publicly accusing the other of wrongdoing.
Sam Collier led Hillsong Atlanta, in Georgia, and was the first-ever African American lead pastor of a Hillsong church.
In March last year, he resigned, stating that it had “become too difficult to lead” after a string of scandals in the denomination.
They released separate statements to their Instagrams moments apart on Friday.
Toni Collier claimed in her statement that she had decided to divorce Sam Collier because of alleged infidelity.
“I’m in the middle of the hardest season of my life. I am heartbroken, yet still hopeful. If you could see all the ways God has been kind to me and my kids your jaw would be on the floor.
