Willow Creek Community CHURCHThe pastor and multiple elders at one of the largest churches in the United States have resigned over backlash from sexual misconduct allegations against the church's founder.

The scandal involves Evangelical Willow Creek Community Church founder Bill Hybels, who resigned four months ago amid misconduct accusations that dates back decades. The accusations include suggestive comments, hugs, unsolicited kissing and invitations to hotel rooms.

Late Wednesday, Elder Missy Rasmussen announced the resignation of lead pastor Heather Larson and elders, and apologized for their handling of the complaints.

"Today I stand before you broken," Rasumussen said in a statement. "These painful and troubling events have scarred these women, their families, and tarnished our church."
