Payola Pastor Accused of Molestation

KSAL StaffJuly 14, 2016

A church pastor and longtime eastern Kansas homeless shelter director has been charged with sexually molesting a child.

57-year-old Jay Preston was charged Monday in Miami County with felony aggravated indecent liberties with a child. He’s jailed on $500,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.

He had served as pastor of Grace Revolution Church of the Nazarene and president and CEO of My Father’s House in Paola. My Father’s House said in a statement that he has been placed on unpaid leave and that the charity will continue operating. It serves residents of Miami, Linn and four additional rural counties.

Miami County Attorney Elizabeth Sweeney-Reeder says the charges stem from an incident earlier this month in rural Miami County.
