First AME Pastor Owes Church $122,000 Plus Interest

The Los Angeles Times reports that Rev. John Hunter, who pastors the First African Methodist Episcopal Church in Los Angeles has been ordered to repay the church $122,000 plus interest after independent audits showed that Hunter had used church credit cards for personal expenditures including clothing, jewelry and family vacations. Hunter, who is paid a six figure salary, and has use of a $2 million church parsonage has agreed to repay the money over a four year period.

It appears that the church is being very generous in their handling of their pastor. Hopefully he's learned the error of his ways.
