RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -  The Richmond Outreach Center (ROC) is looking to hire a new Senior Pastor and Executive Pastor.

"This is a lengthy process and will likely take between six months to a year," the ROC Board of Directors said in a statement posted on the church's website. "We are conducting this search with the help of several experienced, Christian consultants."

ROC founder and former pastor Geronimo Aguilar resigned earlier this month following his arrest on child sex charges. Other church pastors resigned in the wake of Aguilar's arrest.

The ROC Board of Directors said it would hire an "interim preacher" to lead Saturday night church services until a Senior Pastor is hired.
