Hugh King resigns as pastor

We had heard about this Monday afternoon. Rev. Hugh King, Jr. told his congregation on Sunday that he was stepping down as their pastor at Greater Union Baptist Church. King is facing charges for possession of $25 worth of cocaine. In November, King rejected pretrial intervention and announced at a press conference that he would fight the arrest in court. The case is set for trial Jan. 14.

IN reported on the press conference: King: ‘I’m Not Guilty’.

We don’t know whether King will also resign from the Community Maritime Park Associates Board
