Apparently, to Phoenix.
According to the article:
In Phoenix, Haggard plans to pursue a graduate degree in counseling at an area university, said [Rev. H.B.] London, who heads an outreach effort for pastors through Focus on the Family, the Colorado Springs-based right-wing Christian group. London was not sure where Haggard would be studying. The Haggards and two of their children — another three are grown — are expected to live in a home made available by a supporter.
In addition, Haggard will be attending the Phoenix First Assembly of God, a Pentacostal church better known for housing televangelist Jim Bakker after he was released from prison “for bilking supporters of $158 million.”
Haggard will still get paid by New Life Church in Colorado Springs through the end of the year (his salary was approximately $138,000, benefits excluded) as part of a severance package. Other staff members from the church weren’t as lucky. Because of Haggard’s actions, 44 employees were fired.
In return for the severance package, Haggard agreed to leave town and not discuss the scandal publicly.
However, that’s not the case for Mike Jones, the gay prostitute whom Haggard (a.k.a. “Art”) was seeing. Jones has a book deal where he will be discussing the details Haggard won’t be able to share.
