Popular Gospel Music Minister, Israel Houghton Annouces Divorce after 20years of Marriage, says he Failed and Sinned. '

Famous gospel minister Israel Houghton took to his Facebook page to make his divorce from his wife of 20years public. He blamed himself for falling short of God's grace and giving in to infidelity. And as much as they have tried to patch issues over the past 5years, nothing seems to work and they both have decided to go their separate ways but choose to remain friends for the sake of their children. If you're wondering about who he is then sing this song 'you are alpha and omega, we worship you our Lord, you are worthy to be praised.......' with the New Breed. Read what he wrote after the cut.

It is with a collective heavy heart that we announce that after over 20 years of marriage and a long separation, Meleasa and I are officially divorced. Several years ago I failed and sinned in my marriage. Though this is new to many, it is not new to us as we have been working through this for over 5 years. Although we tried, the challenges in our relationship have proven too much to overcome. We have always handled our family and ministry with grace and generosity toward others, discretion, and privacy. So, for the sake of our amazing kids, we are also handling this privately with pastoral oversight and assistance. We choose to remain friendly and kind to each other going forward. I am in the process of restoration and I have repented for my actions. Although I am sincerely sorry, and forgiven, I soberly realize that I will live with the consequences of my failings for the rest of my life. As this has become a public matter I want to apologize to the many who have supported my ministry through the years. I'm sorry for the many who will be hurt to learn of my personal failure. I regret any pain or disappointment that this news may cause you. We thank you for your prayers and for allowing us to handle this privately with those who are set over us in this process.
