According to what the victim told police, the abuse began in 2009 and ended in 2011 when he was a freshman in college and told Youngblood he didn’t want to be counseled by him anymore. Youngblood allegedly asked the teen not to tell his mother “because he didn’t want to get into trouble.” According to neighbors, the pastor is married with multiple children.
According to nearby residents, the Higher Call World Outreach Church is owned by the Youngblood family.
The criminal complaint says Youngblood also showed a pornographic video on his computer to the victim.
In 2006 Youngblood was accused of molesting a 15-year-old boy whom he was also counseling.
He was subsequently sentenced to one year of intermediate punishment and seven years’ probation. Youngblood is a registered sex offender.

His problem was never with being gay.
Some of the Amazon reviews of his book are interesting.
