The Elders would like to provide the following statement regarding our former Youth Minister, Jeremy Mitchell: 
 

In a meeting on May 21st, Jeremy Mitchell informed the Elders of Eastview Christian Church that he had inappropriate contact with an underage female.  Jeremy resigned his position of youth minister at the end of that meeting.  The Elders directed Jeremy not to have any contact with the youth in the church.  After the meeting, the Elders called Child Protective Services and proper law enforcement authorities.  We are shocked and extremely disappointed.  Due to an active investigation, we cannot provide more information.  We ask for prayer for our young people, our congregation, our leadership, and all those affected by this unfortunate situation.
