The Trinity Christian Academy will hire independent attorneys to investigate allegations that a former school administrator molested 6 year old students several decades ago.

Former Pastor Robert Gray was arrested Friday, charged with molesting two people who were former students. Since the arrest, a report on file at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office says at least six other women have made similar claims against Gray.

Tonight Trinity Christian Academy released this statement:

“Yesterday, the former pastor of Trinity Baptist Church was arrested on criminal allegations. The church has taken further steps to address this issue. At this time, the Pastor, Deacons, and General Counsel have hired independent attorneys to investigate this matter further and make recommendations to the church. These attorneys have special expertise in the legal issues involved and are fully informed of the spiritual mission of Trinity Baptist Church.
