Texas megachurch pastor Robert Morris resigned his position Wednesday after a woman recounted her sexual abuse that began at the age of 12.

The resignation of Robert Morris was accepted by the church’s board of elders. The board released a statement saying it is “heartbroken and appalled” by the allegations raised by Cindy Clemishire, who was 12 when the alleged abuse began in 1982. The church has now hired a law firm to investigate the allegations.
