Pastor resigns after prostitution charge
RED WING, Minn. -- First Presbyterian Church of Red Wing leadership has called a special meeting Sunday following the resignation of Pastor Gary Elg.
Elg's resignation was effective Thursday evening, after he told church officials that he had been arrested on prostitution allegations.
"I have failed you as a pastor and a friend," Elg was quoted as saying in a letter sent out to church members Friday. "I have crossed some serious ethical and moral boundaries."
