WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A former North Carolina church leader has been accused of stealing nearly $450,000 from the church and multiple retirement accounts.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports Forsyth Superior Court Judge William A. Wood set a $3 million bond Tuesday for 35-year-old Kenneth Ray Sullivan, Jr.
Grace Presbyterian Church in Winston-Salem filed a lawsuit claiming Sullivan used his position of handling church finances to take the money. The indictment says he took nearly $270,000 between 2008 and 2019.
Sullivan is also accused of taking about $170,000 from four individual retirement accounts, including those belonging to his parents.
