It’s true. Former youth pastor Jacob Allen Conder was convicted for the second time in two months. His first conviction came in January on charges he molested a young girl at a sleepover. Other victims came forward during the investigation, which resulted in his latest conviction. Conder is a serial child molester and former Baptist youth pastor. If you read this blog you know he’s in good company.
The Daviess charges stem from a sleep-over at the church. A 15-year-old girl accused Conder of touching her inappropriately, which led to two other girls coming forward with similar charges.
The analysis here is simple – do not let your daughter go to a sleepover with the youth pastor. Don’t do it – ever. The is simply no reason to send your daughter off into the arms of a child molester. I’m even opposed to allowing a sleepover with the youth pastor if their is adequate supervision. Remember this. If the youth pastor is a man, the he has normal male urges. A pajama party with teenage girls is bait. Are you willing to use your daughters as bait? There are so many other safe ways to develop their character.
