A pastor at an Amarillo church could face up to six months in prison after getting caught with a prostitute in a Motel 6.
Texas Department of Public Safety officers arrested Cameron Tate Reeves, a 34-year-old pastor at Hillside Christian Church’s Hillside Canyon campus since 2009, on Thursday at the hotel at 2032 Paramount Blvd. in Amarillo, Myhighplains.com reported.
Reeves resigned from his post after the arrest, the Amarillo Globe-News reported.
The pastor penned a letter to be read to the church’s congregation on Sunday, according to the Globe-News. In it, Reeves admitted to knowingly booking an appointment for an “inappropriate sexual encounter.”
Reeves said it was Christ’s love that allowed him to be arrested, the Globe-News reported.
“I’m sorry for wounding the heart of Christ … I want to be a faithful son,” the letter read, according to the Globe-News.
