Pastor Andre Symmonds is thanking God for a second chance as he takes over as the new senior pastor of the Calvary Temple Community Church
He made that clear during his official installation ceremony at the Church last Sunday.
Two years ago, Pastor Symmonds was dismissed as the senior pastor of the People's Cathedral, after being accused of sexual misconduct within the church.
Calling it an extremely humbling experience, Pastor Symmonds took the baton from outgoing senior pastor Dr George Callendar in a symbolic gesture,
He says anyone can turn their lives around once they don't give up and he is living proof of that.
Dr. Callendar who led the Church for several years says he was happy to be handing over leadership to Pastor Symmonds.
