The leaders at one of the biggest megachurches in the United States gave their resignation over a sexual misconduct scandal that has already claimed its founder.

According to a statement from elders at the Willow Creek church, a "new start" was needed, and that they should have handled the allegations better.

Bill Hybels stepped down earlier this year after accusations of inappropriate conduct emerged.

He has declined the accusations but said he had become a distraction.
