Rev. Bob Moorehead "horrible, perverted, reprehensible" masturbating in public restroom
by Maria Gomez

Bob Moorehead was the pastor of Overlake Christian Church in Redmond, Washington for 29 years.

But Moorehead said On Sunday May 17 1998 he was resigning as senior pastor of the 5,000-member Overlake Christian Church because he has concluded the "horrible, perverted, reprehensible accusations" represented a stumbling block to the church's mission.

He said he was innocent. But Moorehead's nearly three decades of selfless service, of impeccable reputation, were shredded by unrelenting attacks by accusers.

First was the news that he had faced charges of masturbating in a public restroom in Daytona Beach, Fla. - charges of which he was later exonerated but that stirred suspicions among some in his church.

Then, several men publicly alleged that Moorehead had inappropriately touched them in the past, often before weddings or baptisms. One man said he had an ongoing homosexual relationship with Moorehead in the late 1970s and early '80s that had left him, the accuser, emotionally scarred.

On May 18, 1999 the elders said in a letter to the congregation that they had erred in their support of Moorehead.

The letter did not describe any specific misconduct on Moorehead's part, but the elders, calling themselves "ordinary, fallible men," said they had discovered new evidence that showed he "did violate the scriptural standards of trust, self-control, purity and godly character required for the office of elder and pastor."
