A lawsuit is being filed against Trinity Fellowship Church in Amarillo -- one of the largest churches in West Texas -- over accusations that one of the volunteer pastors molested a girl.
The lawsuit is being filed by the law firm of Glasheen, Valles & Inderman, LLP on behalf of the child. The suit alleges the girl was subjected to sexual abuse by a volunteer youth group leader at the church.
In a statement provided by Trinity Fellowship Church the church stated that Randy Castillo served as an occasional volunteer in the Children's Ministry from October 2012 to July 2014. They said Castillo was not, at any time, employed by the church, given the title of Pastor, or even referred to as such.
TFC said Castillo occasionally served on the volunteer team, where he worked with 4-year-olds in the early childhood ministry. He also served at the summer camp for 1st through 4th graders in 2014.
