It's amazing to me that when ANY church is involved I don't see any references to the POLICE being involved. And they SHOULD be. This is true with ANY church that even SUSPECTS activities like this are going on. Instead, we turn our heads and let the church handle things. This does not stop what's going on. Just ask those in the Catholic church. They have been "relocating" people for YEARS with NO repercussions from law enforcement.

These people need to be investigated like anyone else that's suspected of a crime.

This is one Instance I agree with hbrogan. I find it amazing the lack of police involvement in a majority of these cases. Making a major decision in your life to become an ordained minister,pastor,reverend or priest is an agreement made with God. Why is it that they still feel compelled to blatantly abuse their position in the eyes of God. How do they sleep at night after preforming such activities knowing that God knows this as well. They must be phonies,

probably the reason they join the church to begin with so they can get away with it.

Where is the law? Someone needs to pray for the leadership of this church better yet they really need to pray for themselves. This is just SAD.

Wesley Grove is the church where I grew up, and it pains me to no end to see the church is such disarray. The UCC as well as the church should have had some kind of law enforcement on the premises to ensure that this man is not conducting business as usual. The locks should have been changed and he should have been banned from the building.

Neuter him with pinking shears. That would slow him down a bit.
