Rob Coy Pastor of Megachurch Broken Over Unfaithfulness to Wife and Church

Rob Coy

Rob Coy, Senior Pastor of Megacgurch Calvary Chapel in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, recently stepped down from that position of 30 years, as he confessed to having two extra marital affairs as well as being addicted to pornography. His actions have left him broken over his unfaithfulness to his wife and church.

The announcement shocked the 20,000 member church, yet as one of the members stated, we are a strong church. We will survive. We have other Pastors who will be able to step in and take over. Many of the church members are weeping not only for their own hurt, but for Pastor Rob, his wife Diane, and their two children. While no one in the church is calling for him to be “stoned,” Brian Craig, the producer of the Steve Kane Show on AM1470 WMNN told the Examiner that Pastor Rob was a very selfish man who indulged in his own personal desires and when he was caught, he abandoned his church.

In a standing room only meeting where 7500 people attended, Pastors read an apology letter written by Pastor Rob. Many have been hurt by his actions as well as disappointed which goes without question, because of the faith and trust they placed in Pastor Rob Coy was violated. One of his parishioners recalled him saying, Don’t place your trust in me because I am going to let you down. The world will could either see this as a cop-out for his moral failing, a fact based on where he came from before becoming a Pastor, or an eerie prediction of what was going t

No one is perfect and should the people of the world want to pick up rocks and stone Pastor Rob Pastor of Megachurch Calvary Chapel, who continues to be broken over his unfaithfulness to his wife and church,  Jesus would have this to say: He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone. The Apostle James would have this to say if he were living today regarding this situation, We all stumble in many ways. It is quite possible the Rob Coy failed to reach out first to his wife and secondly to the church board about his addiction to pornography and the affairs because of shame. It is also quite possible that maybe he thought he could handle it and walk away whenever he wanted to. It is equally possible he felt that by confessing these sins, he was not as strong in the Lord as he thought he was. All in all, the bottom line is that he chose fear over confession until the burden of this weight became too much for him to bear. But people will probably see it as he chose not to be accountable until it was too late and the damage was don

No one is too far gone and beyond the reaches of God’s grace and mercy, as God is the God of 2 chances, 3rd chances, etc. If this scandal would have continued to go on as it was, more damage could have been done to those at that church. It is possible that Rob Coy remembered what 1 Peter 4:17 said, and the conviction of this broke him into true repentance. For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God. Rob Coy, Pastor of a megachurch, is a man broken over his unfaithfulness to his wife and church does not need pity, chastisement, or judgment. Pastor Rob needs prayer.

    Nathan:

    Thank you for your comment. However, one thing you may be unaware of with Guardian Liberty Voice’s article writing criteria, is that when writing an article such as I did on Pastor Coy, it is mandatory that we use a variation of the person’s name such as I did in my article. My next response to your comment regarding Pastor Coy’s addiction to pornography and affairs was something that he himself admitted to another source. I did my research to make sure my comments were credible. If you happened to read the sources I listed, then you would know that I did not make up anything.

    I want to say that Pastor Bob Coy has a wife that is truly a mighty Woman if God! Listen to a word at a woman’s retreat she spoke at in the fall of 2012. It is so amazing!!!

      Hi Nick,

      You are 100% right. Diane Coy is an anointed woman who comes from an anointed family. The Coy’s have a true love story, which is why this is all the more disappointing and unfortunate.

    John,

    Good article with two MAJOR structural problems. Rob Coy does no exist. The pastor’s full name is Robert but went by BOB while in the pulpit. It would seem that if you were writing an article on a pastor you would know that. Second, your information regarding pornography and multiple affairs is pure conjecture. There has been no such admission made by either Bob Coy or Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale.
