A Greenacres Florida youth minister has been arrested and charged with having sex with a female parishioner every week for more than a year. Pastor Brent Edwards 33-years-old, ran "Extreme Revolution Youth Ministries" from the Community Life Center in Greenacres, and from his Suburban Lake Worth home. The details of the criminal behavior came to light after the young girl confided in another youth minister about what had been happening to her. According to reports, Edwards had given the girl a ring telling her that they were married.
Unfortunately, youth ministers are often untrained, unsupervised, and not well versed in how to minister to youth. In some circumstances, proper background screening isn’t performed. As a parent, one would think that a child should be safe at church. Think again!
