Columbus Reverend Refuses To Leave Church To Be Torn Down

Last updated on Thursday, April 2, 2009

(COLUMBUS) - A minister whose church is scheduled to be torn down in preparation for street widening in downtown Columbus refuses to leave, because he says God wants him to stay.

Mayor Fred Armstrong insists the city-owned building be vacated by April 27th to keep the project on schedule for a spring start.

Armstrong says he will decide by that date how to deal with the situation if the Reverend Charles T. Goodin is still there by the deadline.
