Quest Church Pastor: Public Ministry “Discontinued”

The lead and founding pastor of a prominent Lexington church is discontinuing his public ministry after admitting to an extra-marital affair.

In a statement on its website, Quest Community Church said pastor Pete Hise and another pastor, Sharon Clements, met with church leaders and confessed to a quote: "unhealthy emotional attachment that led to the crossing of physical boundaries stopping short of sexual intercourse."

Clements is also married.

The church’s statement also read: "Despite the hurt they have caused, two people that we love and care deeply about have never been more in need of our prayers and grace."

Quest Community Church has 5,000 members and hosts "Questapalooza."
