Pastor AR Bernard, pastor of the very popular CCC (Christian Cultural Center), in East New York, Brooklyn, has stepped down from Donald Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Council.
Below is the pastor’s official statement.
In a social and political climate such as ours, it often takes a gathering of unlikely individuals to shape the future of our nation on issues of faith and inner city initiatives. I was willing to be one of those unlikely individuals, and that is why I agreed to serve on the President’s Evangelical Advisory Board. However, it became obvious that there was a deepening conflict in values between myself and the administration. I quietly stepped away from my involvement with the Board several months ago, and submitted my letter of formal resignation as of Tues. Aug. 15, 2017.
I am always grateful and honored by an opportunity to serve my country.
