Sparger is the former pastor of North Point Church in Springfield, Missouri. He resigned over the summer, citing an affair. The church is now struggling, having temporarily closed two "campuses" in the area.

Sparger has dropped off the radar almost entirely. Does anyone in this area know anything about him? I ask because I expect him to re-surface at some point. He is classic Seeker-Driven, and while he was not in the upper, upper echelon of this movement, he was successful enough that I'd guess he can't stay away. Just my two cents.

He was mentored by Craig Groeschel and others.
