A Buena Vista pastor is behind bars and facing child-sex-related charges.

Larry Clark, a pastor at Pentecostal Outreach Church, is facing multiple charges for molesting two teenage boys.

We were able to pull the search warrants related to this case, and they detail accusations that Clark molested two teenage boys on separate occasions back in 2011.

One victim claims Clark molested him inside his home, which is near the church.

The second says Clark invited him to his house via Facebook, and when he came to the house, he, too, was molested.

Rockbridge County Sheriff's deputies executed those search warrants at Clark's home Thursday, removing his computer, some VHS tapes, CDs and camcorder tapes. They also snapped pictures inside and outside of the home.

Once that search was complete, Clark was arrested on two charges of taking indecent liberties with a child and one charge of cruelly treating a child.

He's currently being held at the Rockbridge Regional Jail without bond, though a bond hearing has been scheduled for early next week.

On Friday, members of Clark's congregation gathered at the church to pray, they tell us. They did not want to go on camera, but said they're completely shocked and devastated by these allegations, and that the matter is now in God's hands.
