Michigan Conference president Jay Gallimore writes, "I received a call from Dr. Pipim Monday [May 23] afternoon telling me that he was resigning from Michigan Conference and the ministry."
Samuel Pipim, director of public campus ministries for the Michigan conference, helped to found Generation of Youth for Christ (GYC), led the opposition to the ordination of women, and authored a number of books supporting conservative readings of the Bible.
In a May 29 message addressed to "Colleagues in Ministry," Jay Gallimore writes, "life and ministry sometimes brings us great pain and sorrow. This is one of those times. Dr. Samuel Pipim. . .has given the Michigan Conference Executive Committee (MCEC) his resignation. It has been accepted and voted. Please see his resignation letter. . ." Because it was circulated by his conference and is freely available on the CAMPUS website, it is embedded below.
