A one-time youth pastor with Faith Impact Fellowship in Bastrop, Texas has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 15-year old girl.
Isaiah Arellano, 25, was a friend of the girl’s family that they knew from their church. He was staying with the alleged victim’s family after they took him in when he was experiencing marital troubles.
The girl’s mother, who wishes to remain anonymous, told KXAN news that they trusted Arellano because he was the youth pastor at their church and they were told that he did not have any other place to go. The victim’s mother discovered Arellano having sex with her daughter in their home and immediately reported the pastor to the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office.
Upon learning of the incident(s), the head pastor at Faith Impact Fellowship said that Arellano, his nephew, was dismissed from his position.
“This was a youth pastor. This was supposed to be somebody who represented God,” said the victim’s mother. “This was the ultimate betrayal.”
