The International Communion of Charismatic Churches (ICCC) College of Bishops elected Bishop David Huskins as their new presiding bishop at a meeting in Rome on Nov. 17 and 18.

Huskins, who serves as Bishop over the Fellowship of Vineyard Harvester Churches, a nationwide fellowship that includes Cedar Lake Christian Center, had been serving as vice president of the ICCC. He will now assume the helm of the largest charismatic ecclesiastical order of bishops in the world.

“My goal is to seek to bring integrity and accountability back to the office of Presiding Bishop,” said Huskins. ...

The ICCC College of Bishops met under a cloud of accusation surrounding its former Presiding Archbishop Earl Paulk.

Paulk was asked by the group recently to resign after allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct surfaced from longtime staff members and close associates of Paulk, who all alleged his patterns of abuse had continued for many years.
