Oct 3, 2014 – HOUSTON Texas — Second Baptist Church and Community of Faith Church are being sued by the family of the victim who was sexually assaulted by a youth pastor while wiring in the churches.
Chad Foster has been convicted of multiple counts of sex assault of a child and online solicitation in 2013.
Foster met the young girl while working at Second Baptist. The assaults continued once moving to Community of Faith Church. The parents are suing the churches for failure to perform adequate background checks, to train and monitor youth pastors, and failed to adopt and enforce rules to supervise youth pastors and their interactions with teens.
