North Carolina Pastor Charged with Historical Child Sex Abuse in Florida

LINCOLN COUNTY, North Carolina — A former pastor with ties to Lincolnton and Shelby is charged with sexually abusing a child.

Channel 9’s partners at the Gaston Gazette reported Michael Hill is charged with sexual battery of a person younger than 12 years old.

The alleged abuse happened decades ago in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Gazette reported that Hill served as pastor of churches in Shelby and Lincolnton for 15 years, leaving his most recent position in April of 2014.

How do such dreadful people become pastors? There's something very wrong intrinsically with the way the Christian church vets its clergy when people like this (assuming he's guilty) become pastors. It's too easy! We have gifts of discernment in the evangelical church; why aren't we using them?
