Perry told his thousands of followers on social media that his megachurch pastor friend reached out to him when others pushed him away.
In 2016, Noble was removed as the senior pastor of NewSpring Church in Anderson, South Carolina, a church he founded in 2000, for alcohol abuse, posture toward his marriage, and other unbiblical behaviors.
The former megachurch pastor founded Second Chance Church (Anderson, SC) in 2017. The church’s website says Second Chance is “a place where all people can experience the grace of God.” The site also says that “during each message you can expect Pastor P to bring a relatable, and relevant message from the Bible that’s easy to understand, practical, and easy to apply outside of the doors of the Church.”
Perry also shared how Furtick ministered to him after he was removed from NewSpring Church.
“You spoke life and hope and truth into me in a way where I felt corrected, but not condemned! You invited me to Thanksgiving dinner at your house in 2017 when I had no where else to go,” Perry said. “You invited me to Elevation Church to preach…when I was in the middle of wrestling with whether or not I would ever preach again!”
“Thank you for the life and hope you preach every single weekend!!! Absolutely love what is happening Elevation Church—and believe with all my heart that the best is yet to come,” Perry concluded.
