You should google his name on YouTube where he's introduced as a Pastor and then goes on to speak about the evils of the church he worked in as a Youth Pastor where he was also fired from for cause and physically assaulting another pastor

The same church where he was repeatedly molesting a child in the youth group for 3 years while actively working as a youth pastor. He's the victim? Have you found the sentencing? It was supposed to take place Dec 12th.

Yes he was sentenced to 8 yrs.! The whole YouTube video was pretty disturbing... I didn't watch all of it because it made me sick.... HYPOCRITE! That's all I could think of and he's a pig.

Be very careful what side you take when you do not know the full story......

He was my counselor when Oasis was still open. The man helped me in amazing ways and I am drug free because of it. This news has me crushed and now believing I can not trust anyone. How can someone who helped a heroine addict like me be this evil?

Look there, "TRUE" Christian behavior illustrated by Mike & Avsfan1957... Be Careful while casting stones based on media truths! Truth lies between our Lord and the sinners... It is not up to you to judge and condemn.

I don't have to be careful what side I take.... I KNOW THE WHOLE STORY! I'm very close to the situation and I don't listen to the media...Anonymous! And I am not casting stones or am I judging or condemning not my job that's up to the good Lord. Matt has to deal with this with God! He knows what he did and he can deny all he wants but God knows what he did too. THERE WAS A LOT OF EVIDENCE OR THEY WOULD NOT HAVE CONVICTED HIM!

The state of CO convicts anyone. No evidence existed except the evidence the detective made up......

He didn't have a choice. I pray that none of you are ever in the position to have to make the decision he did.....

Mike Crane said...

Position he was in? You mean the position he put himself in by choosing to be a sexual predator against a child? Or the position where he plead to a lessor charge to save himself and take a lower sentence for something he has only himself to blame? There is no excuse for abusing a child. Even less for doing so and playing the victim afterward as though he was wronged. 8 years is not nearly enough. His victim has to live with what he did to her for a lifetime.

I was also court ordered to attend Oasis back in 2008. I know Matt on a personal level. You're gonna tell me what I can and can't do while you're over hear molesting some kid? I hope he rots in prison. I hope he gets trained by the inmates tag team style. And if and when he does get out, I'm going out of my way to further expose him. All I am is a pothead and he tried to make an example of me. HE's A CHILD MOELSTER! Looks like I win. HAHAHAHAHA
