Futher details of the pedophila actions of Jordan Roots at Matt Chandler's church include the following:

TVC elders take back church discipline of Karen Hinkley, wife of pedophile Jordan Roots, stating:
Yes they sure do owe her a huge apology and should step down themselves. Clearly they jumped the gun on the wife in hopes to contain her public revelation of her pedophile husband.
Between the pedophile sodomy that went on at CJ Mahaney's church, the molestation of siblings twelve years ago by Josh Duggar, and the pedophile at Matt Chandler's church (and the church there is disciplining the wife who is a victim of her husband's pedophilia via adultery), the common thread continues to be a failure in leadership. All three churches/ families have been under an overbearing view of unbiblical submission. In all three cases, it seems that the victims were the least of the leaders' concerns. Instead their main focus was a fake unity, a cover up of the heinous crime, and a demand to forgive and move on without serious consequences. In other words, it seems to me that the perpetrators have become the victims instead of the victims being the victims, and anyone who stands up and against such has become the problem. This is calling evil good, and good evil. It is also not true biblical shepherding of the sheep, especially the vulnerable. It is also not taking seriously the heinous nature of the crimes and sins, and the law is not being used to protect the sheep.
Such heinous sin reveals a systemic problem of leadership in many homes and churches, along with the lack of believing and then protecting the victims. Privatizing sin allows it to continue. God gave us the government to protect people from evil, not protect the evil doer!
Like the Roman Catholic Church and it's decades of covering up their pedophilia within leadership, these churches were not willing to report crimes to the authorities.
Rom 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,
Rom 13:4 for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer.
