Paula White replaces Zachery Tims and Riva Tims sues

It is official. Paula White has been selected to replace Zachery Tims as the pastor of New Destiny Christian Center. 

During a press conference on Thursday, Riva Tims, ex-wife of the deceased pastor has filed a lawsuit against New Destiny Christian Center's board. She wants an election to determine who will be the church's new pastor.

Riva Tims co-founded the church with her late ex-husband. Many believe that she has a right to succeed him as the church's pastor. 

At the press conference, Tims stated how she was unhappy with how the board handled the selection process. It is pretty clear there were definitely some questionable actions regarding how the board handled this selection. Bishop IV Hilliard's resignation from the board was the first action that began to raise concerns from many people looking at this situation from the outside. 

Apparently Riva Tims believes that the board was negligent in hiring White. A 2006 audit reveals that under White's leadership, her current church Without Walls International Church, is $26 million in debt.

There is no telling what the result of this lawsuit will be. New Destiny Christian Center finally has a new pastor. However, Paula White is now the pastor of two churches and this is not one of those one church, two locations type of scenarios. 

Will she leave Without Walls International? Can she effectively pastor both congregations? What do you think?
