The pastor of an Indiana megachurch lost his job after being careless with cell phone pictures showing him making out with a young woman.
The girl may be as young as 16, and police are now investigating Jack Schaap.
Schaap, 54, was fired from First Baptist Church in Hammond on Tuesday after 11 years in the pulpit, a church spokesman told WBBM-TV.
Former First Baptist member Trisha Kee said Schaap left his cell phone behind and a deacon picked it up to bring it to him.
“The deacon then saw a text come through from a teenage girl in the
church, and it was a picture of Jack Schaap and this girl making out,”
The spokesman would not confirm the girl’s age, but said she was thought to be over 18. Others believe she is about 16, according to the Chicago Tribune.
