RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- The Richmond Outreach Center (The ROC) has hired two interim pastors. Pastors David Wheeler and Louis 'PJ' Preston will alternate preaching duties so the church board of directors can focus their full attention on the search for a new senior pastor.

Pastor G faces seven felony charges that he allegedly sexually abused two minors in the 1990's.

The ROC's senior pastor and founder, Geronimo Aguilar or Pastor G, resigned in June after charges from his past resurfaced. Aguilar has been charged with aggravated sexual battery of a child under 14 in Tarrant County, Texas. Aguilar and his lawyer maintain his innocence.
