Youth Minister at Anti-Gay Illinois Church Charged With Sexually Exploiting Teen Boy

Authorities claim Paxton Singer, a youth pastor at Harvest Bible Chapel in Aurora, Illinois, asked a 16-year-old for nude photos, inquired about the teen’s sexual habits and requested the two spend the weekend alone together.

Prosecutors says Singer, “knowingly enticed a person under 17 years of age to remove their clothing for the purpose of sexual arousal or gratification of the defendant or the child.” He faces a misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and sexual exploitation of a child.

Singer also worked at the Harvest Bible Chapel campus in Rolling Meadows, about 40 miles away. Church officials disclosed there were also allegations of inappropriate actions between Singer and three different male teens there also.

Harvest Bible Chapel is a large anti-gay evangelical organization with congregations across the metro Chicago area. In its bylaws, Harvest asserts that God “is the sole authority in matters of marriage and sexuality for all people, and that marriage involves the sacred joining together of one man and one woman in faithful, permanent union.” and also condemns sex outside of heterosexual marriage and prohibits “‘sexual immorality’ activities related to: lustful thoughts, adultery, fornication, pornography, homosexuality, bisexuality or polygamy.”

  1. Interesting that they claim to see polygomy as evil
    The Bible as the word of God is full of it

    Seems they as do many such groups
    Cherry Pick from the Bible

    If all listed are wrong
    Which makes Gods
    Word wrong
    They are contradicting God

    What do they think they are?
    Better than God?
    Know more than He?

    Hope they can handle heat
    All members are clearly going to Hell

    I wonder if internet useage of porn
    Is higher in their neighborhoods

    Hypocrisy is not a virtue

  2. Predatory behavior from any adult, in any situation or setting is disturbing and unlawful. Any who violate this should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of religious affiliation or public position. No one is above the law of God. Judgement awaits all who disobey. Sad to see a youth leader, who knows the Word of God falling prey to the enticement of the adversary. In the end, even Christians are just imperfect people living in a fallen world.Maranatha! Maranatha!
