A longtime associate pastor at Believers Church in Auburn has been arrested on child sex abuse charges.

Every Sunday, for nearly 30 years at Believers Church on Moore’s Mill Road, 53-year-old John Sluder, an associate pastor, would play guitar during services.

An industry professional in the picture-taking business wants everyone who uses Facebook to be aware that an unknown person is trying to lure young ladies with a pitch that he will pay them to do a photo shoot.
But according to well-known Columbus photographer, John Pyle, all signs point to this being a completely fake enterprise.
Pyle has a studio on Broadway and he does a lot of shoots for high school seniors.
It recently came to his attention that someone using the name Rhonda Howard has been active on Facebook trying to convince young girls to agree to have their picture taken with promises of money.
