Texas Youth Pastor Arrested in 'Massive' Local Prostitution Sting

A Fort Worth youth pastor was among 46 men arrested in a massive undercover prostitution sting in Texas, local and federal authorities announced this weekend.

Lamarcus Strickland, who was ordained a pastor at Compass Church in Sept. 2018, was part of a dragnet that hauled in a teacher and high school football coach, a volunteer firefighter, a semi-professional hockey player and the director of operations for a large hospital network in Texas, Fox News reported. As a pastor, Strickland worked with the First Priority of America, a youth organization that supports student-initiated, student-led Christian clubs on middle school and high school campuses.

A father of three, Strickland, 35, and 22 other men were arrested at the Hilton at Southlake Town Square in Southlake, Texas, on Jan. 12. He and the others were charged with solicitation of prostitution.

How This Megachurch Pastor Miraculously Survived His Mother's Abortion Attempt to Preach the Pro-Life Message

2023CMPrintcoverJeremiah 1:4-5 has always held a special significance for Jack Hibbs, the lead pastor at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino Hills, California. The Scripture reads: "Now the Word of the Lord came to me, saying, 'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; and before you were born I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.'"

While Hibbs says he wouldn't hold himself up to be as important as the prophet Jeremiah, the megachurch pastor says he knows for a fact that God has "called me from the womb."

On Christmas Eve in 1957, Hibbs says his mother "put her two older children to bed in their apartment, boiled a metal clothes hanger and proceeded to lie down on the kitchen floor, where she attempted to abort her third child." Hibbs told "Calvary Chapel Magazine" that "fortunately, someone came to his mother's rescue and the abortion failed." She went to the hospital, and 21 days later, on Jan. 15, 1958, "God saw fit to let me come into a world where I wasn't wanted."
