Dallas Pastor Accused Of Stealing $300,000 From His Church

A pastor of a Baptist church in Dallas, Texas has been accused of stealing $300,000 from his own Church. A grand jury indicted Rev. Wade C. Davis on a theft of more than $300,000 charge on March 22, according to court documents, according to Dallas News. 

The 65-year-old pastor of the Munger Avenue Baptist Church reportedly turned himself into Dallas police. When the board began reviewing the church's accounts, it noticed that Davis had made numerous withdrawals and charges for personal expenses and without any oversight from the church.

Davis also attempted to sell property owned by the church without any approval from the board, according to the suit. In all, Davis is accused of wrongfully withdrawing about $400,000 from the church's accounts. 

"I mean, just to think that the man of God could possibly have done something this heinous to his members," Richard Greagor, who said he's speaking on behalf of the church's deacons and trustees, told KXAS-TV (NBC5). 

"Two-thirds of the church decided that they no longer want to be here, so for the past year we've been worshipping at Black and Clark Funeral Home in Oak Cliff."
