Pastor fighting church over forced resignation

We told you about this church and pastor a while back.

Well, the pastor and his son pleaded guilty and were fined $50 plus court costs.

But now there’s a bigger battle at the Church at Polaris near Columbus.

It seems the leadership team has asked the pastor to resign.

According to a suit filed recently, Pastor Bennett Smith actually did resign last month when the leadership asked him to.  But then ‘revoked’ his resignation and then tried to fire a leadership team member and church employee.

Also, the suit accuses him of trespassing and telling a staff person to transfer a large amount of month out of one of the church’es accounts.

The website still lists Smith as their Senior Pastor.

QUESTION:  Can you really revoke your resignation?

How does one do that?
