Church pastor attempted to entice followers into swinger relationship

A former Church follower has sensationally claimed that Pastor Paul Buress who administers in the church abused his powers by attempting to entice worshippers into the swinger lifestyle, as Christian Post reported. The link has now been taken down from the Christian Post, but still up on rawstory.com reported yesterday but still making the rounds on the internet on sites like reddit.

The Victory Church to which the pastor belongs was recently featured in a documentary about the many churches that attract followers and build communities through fights of martial arts involving fight ministry’ religious leaders.

Buress steadfastly defended these fights, saying that they were not destructive or hateful. Instead, he says that these fights taught participants to control their most violent impulses by means of strength, perseverance and discipline- none of which, he said, are in conflict with Christianity.

However, according to reports by Bloody Elbow blog, a former member who cannot be identified reported to Victory Church’s leadership team that Pastor Buress attempted to entice him to join a sexual affair with his wife.

According to the unidentified man, Buress asked him to do bodily back rub on Jill Buress, the Pastor’s wife, who, the man claims, was already braless and shirtless. He said that this happened twice while he was at the home of the two in 2009.

The man further claims that Buress ensured that his hand touched his wife's breast claiming that he moved his hand there himself. He also ensured that the man touched his wife's bare bottom.

According to the man, who says that at that time he was 21 and unmarried, Buress also let him see his wife’s nude photos and also video of the two having sex.

He said that the swingers incident weighed on him so much that he decided he had to quit the church. According to him, he found it increasingly difficult to have faith in his pastor. Quoting 1 Cor 4:2, the man says that stewards are required to be trustworthy.

The man further said that Buress also made sexual approaches to two erstwhile church followers, in their early 20s, at the couple's home in 2012. He said that this took place where the two ought to have had their backs being worked on.

According to him, Pastor Buress later approached one of the members at a local coffee shop with the intent to seduce her. He even confessed that he was in a swinger relationship while married previously to another woman.

The pastor, according to the man, asked the girls to remove their bras and tops apparently because the straps hindered smooth working. These girls later quit victory and will never return, reports the man. This, the man says, is because the girls were too frightened by the blatant sexual approaches of the man they thought was their pastor.

At the same time, a former student, 16 years at that time, and who in 2009 stayed with the Buress couple sent a correspondence to the leadership of the church last year, stating that she had been molested by the pastor.

The following day, the executive pastor of Victory Church dispatched an email to church leaders saying that the woman’s claims were “the latest snide email attack against” the church and Buress.

Part of the email questions the timing of the letter given that the woman has not come out to complain about the alleged sexual molestation after all these years. Al Ogden, the church's director of counseling , also says that last year, the lady came back to the church. This, according to Ogden, means that she was not bothered much at that time by the incident.

In the email, Ogden also says that these claims might have been the work of serious coaching given the way they resemble other allegations leveled against Buress. Also, Ogden questioned how the woman ended up with the email list if the deacon.

The man further voiced his concern over the lifestyle of the pastor, who he accused of having been in an affair while he had a wife in Missouri. He says that the pastor was divorced after his extramarital relationship with another woman from his Rochester Fusion church was discovered. According to him, the pastor has had several swingers before this incident and must be stopped.

He accused victory church leaders of only protecting their image instead of addressing the issues that he raised in the letter.
