Bruxy Cavey, the leader of Toronto's Meeting House Church has been placed on a leave of absence after sexual misconduct allegations were made against him.
In a statement to the Religious News Service, Maggie John, chair of the Meeting House board, said: "Bruxy has now been placed on a leave of absence while an external investigation takes place.
"We take these allegations very seriously and are committed to a thorough and transparent process. We are praying through this situation."
The Meeting House has 19 campuses across Toronto.
Cavey is a renowned author and preacher with over 20,000 followers on Twitter.
He's a regular contributor to the Premier Unbelievable podcast and is known for reaching out to those who aren't naturally drawn to Christianity.
He is yet to respond publically to the charges.
