Baptist youth pastor Clyde Wesley Way indicted

Baptist youth worker and youth pastor Clyde Wesley Way was indicted for taking indecent liberties with four boys at a Baptist summer camp. He allegedly liked to play strip poker for sexual gratification.

Clyde Wesley Way, 68, was indicted Jan. 21 by a grand jury on four counts of taking indecent liberties with a child and four counts of indecent exposure, according to the Port City Daily in Wilmington, N.C. The acts are alleged to have occurred during a church retreat at the North Carolina Baptist Assembly at Fort Caswell June 24-29, 2013.
Prior to his arrest on July 10, 2013, at his home in Ablemarle, N.C., Way worked several years as volunteer student ministries team leader for the Stanly Baptist Association. Associational leaders removed him after four boys told their parents what happened at summer camp.

Way’s entire life focused on children. I’m sure authorities asking a lot of uncomfortable questions of former employers.
