Perry Noble has filed paperwork to start a new nonprofit, called Second Chance Church, about a year after he was removed from the church he founded, NewSpring Church. NewSpring was one of the nation’s largest churches, with 14 campuses and an attendance of around 33,000. The church has lost followers in the year since the split, which church leaders said was caused by Noble’s alcohol use and stance toward his marriage. Noble filed for the new nonprofit in July and has declined to talk about what Second Chance Church would be. Wochit
Two years after being dismissed from the church he founded, Perry Noble has announced he will be moving his online ministry into an Anderson building.
In social media posts Wednesday morning, Noble posted a picture of a sign at a strip mall in Anderson where Target and Lowe’s stores are located. He said the services are expected to start in September.
“Until then we will continue to gather online every week!” his Facebook page says. “The best IS yet to come.”
Noble founded NewSpring Church, the state’s largest church, nearly two decades ago.
Noble was dismissed from the church two years ago for issues including alcohol and his stance toward his family. He has been to rehab since, and last year launched Second Chance Church, which has existed as an online church and has held in-person services at a the Bleckley Inn.
He announced on social media this weekend that he would be giving his last apologies and would be moving forward.
“However, when a person falls down they can either cry about the fall, try to blame the fall on others — or simply get back up and try to keep moving forward, and for me—I’ve chosen to get back up,” Noble posted this weekend. ”
