A pastor of a south-east Christian church has been charged with child molesting a minor.

St Paul’s Rev Paul Williams is charged with one count of rape and one count each of aggravated sexual assault and sexual abuse, according to a statement from the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.

Williams was arrested on March 25.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the arrest to News24 on Friday.

Williams is being held on $50,000 bail and has not entered a plea.

Williams, who is pastor at the St. Paul’s Church of the Nazarene in West Richland Hills, is being investigated by the Montgomery Area Child Abuse Task Force, according the statement.

The charges are the latest in a string of cases involving Williams.

In October, Williams was accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, who also attends the church.

Williams has been the pastor at St Pauls Church of The Nazarena in West Hollywood since November 2016.

He was also a member of the local Nazarenoan Baptist Church before joining the St Paul-based church.
