The situation at Arise church is being described as a crisis.
The founding pastor of the mega-church group – John Cameron – has resigned from its board, after interns claimed they were overworked, overwhelmed and taken advantage of.
He's also apologised for any hurt caused.
Religious scholar Peter Lineham told Tim Dower the church is reacting quickly and openly.
“It announced that John Cameron and his brother Brent Cameron were stepping down from pastoral responsibilities and clarified they’re not on the payroll.”
