Evangelist Roberts Liardon leads London Bible College
Evangelist Roberts Liardon has been named principal of the International Bible Institute of London (IBIOL), the training arm of the charismatic Kensington Temple London City Church, reports Charisma News Online.
The school, which began classes Monday, trains Christians to evangelize throughout Europe and around the world.
"Roberts brings an enormous amount of experience in ministry in general and in training in particular," said Colin Dye, founder and president of the school and apostolic overseer of Kensington Temple. "We know Roberts will be a blessing to us, and we hope to be a blessing to him."
The appointment comes nearly eight years after Liardon (pictured) stepped down from his Embassy Christian Center in Irvine, Calif., after confessing to a short-term homosexual relationship with the church's youth pastor.
Dye said he believes Liardon, 43, has been fully restored to ministry since his December 2001 confession.
