This guy had little boys crawling all over him constantly--for years. He was allowed to be alone with kids and be an AWANA leader at Elmwood Baptist Church. I am a former member, and I speak with experience. Many adults there are guilty as accessory to lude acts on children. FACT

Do you mean you were a member of AWANA as a leader or one of the children in AWANA? Did you know this guy? And do you mean the adults at the church where this guy worked at or AWANA leaders in general? Sorry for the questions, just trying to clarify. I went to high school with this guy. He always seemed a little odd but I never thought much of it.

Now watch the church defend their own.“I can't believe it, he taught the Bible so well”. Well believe it. You've got a bunch of pervs working with your children. "But lets not shoot our wounded". Come on. Defend your children not your apostate whore leaders. There's one church off my list of my absolute truth, gospel centered body of believers. I'd almost take the prosperity gospel over that mess. Watch what you criticise Church. At least they still have KJV only and no words on the screens. Yep, keep worrying about the important stuff.

I love when people are so quick to judge I've know this man and his entire family all my life, It shocked me but he is human! I was in Awana with him I spent many years at church camp and other activities.

He would witness to everyone and talk to them about God.

So before all the judging starts have respect for his family and friends!!!

We are all human mistakes happen Pray for him instead of being so negative.

Its true everyone makes mistakes. But, this wasn't a mistake. It is a sickness!! It is being called a sexual predator!! Why would we pray for him? If its proven which I am sure it will be. Stick him in prison in general population!!

Seems to me that EBC would hold their leaders to higher standards. Where's the Church dicipline on this one? They just keep running to his aid and defending him. If he's done what they said he did, you'd think they'd be “praying for his victims” as well, but they just keep backing the guy. It seems like as long as they minimilize the scandal, the truth can be masked. Traditional, KJV only, wearing suits and dresses...... ridiculous. Just keep that image nice and polished so that nobody knows what sick pedophiles you have “teaching the Bible” to the Awanas and church camp kids. This crap right here is why the world looks to Christians as acknowledging the gospel with their lips but denying Him with their lifestyle. Such poor ambassadors for Christ. Boooo! You should be ashamed ... if it's true of course.

Your name says it best...you know nothing.First off... what victims are you speaking of ? There has been no claims of abuse of any kind. Praying for someone isn't defending what they did or supposedly did.If he's guilty he needs help and if he's not then he still ruined by this.So he needs prayer.
The church has already taken action in this matter and will act accordingly as the truth unfolds. Its a sad day when someone bashes a church with nothing ,but rumors and partial facts. Also remember this is still under investigation.So its hard to condem someone with out knowing the whole truth.

His haircut is a dead giveaway. Haha, what a dork! I've seen this guy around but never met him. That being said, I could've called it a looping time before he got caught.
