Ted Haggard Career
The Colorado Springs Independent published the first extensive interview with Haggard to appear in the secular press since the 2006 scandal in 2009. In a 2½-hour interview, the former pastor talked about the scandal, and his agreement never to return to New Life or the state of Colorado. He also added about his suicidal ideas and the prospect of starting a new church in Colorado Springs. “Back in the old days,” said Haggard, “when somebody would get in trouble, they’d just need to move 40 or 50 miles or a hundred miles, and they could start again. Not anymore. This is one of the reasons why we needed to come home. Because I needed to finish this story from here.”
Haggard posted a message on his Twitter account announcing his intent to begin public prayer meetings in his Colorado Springs home on November 4, 2009. He started holding the prayer meetings in his barn on December 7. On June 6, 2010, the first meeting of the new church, with Haggard as pastor, was held at the Haggard home.
Haggard and his wife, Gayle, established the Saint James Church in Colorado Springs in 2010. In 2015 he became a Free Methodist Church elder. As of September 2018, Haggard continues to serve as founding pastor at St. James Church.
Haggard sold the warehouse housing Saint James Church for $1.95 million according to the El Paso County, Colo., Assessors office. The sale came after new allegations surfaced about Haggard’s alleged inappropriate relationships with boys in the church and more alleged drug use. Haggard founded a new church in his home in 2022 looking to capitalize on a trend of home-based micro churches.
