Church leaders have removed a prominent pastor from his leadership duties after New Jersey authorities arrested him on accusations of sexual misconduct with minors.
Harry L. Thomas is pastor of Come Alive Church and co-founder of Creation Festival, one of the country’s largest Christian music festivals. The 74 year-old was charged recently with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. Thomas is currently being held in a guarded medical facility because he is too ill for jail.
According to NJ.com, Thomas allegedly assaulted four children over a 16-year period, starting in 1999. New Jersey police are actively searching for more possible victims.
