And the Church wants the money back.
Lawyers for the Greater New Light Missionary Baptist Church said Monday night the church has fired former state Rep. Ron Sailor Jr. as pastor. Lawyers also said they are hopeful they will be able to recover the $250,000 Sailor obtained after secretly mortgaging the church early last month.
“There is a good chance they are going to get their money back,” said Brian Lee, one of two lawyers on the case. Lee would not elaborate.
