Second Atlanta Bishop Involved In Sex Scandal

Another local Bishop may be facing allegations of commiting sex crimes against children.

The allegations surfaced two weeks ago, after an anonymous tip led the Dekalb County District Attorney’s office to Bishop Johnathan Alvarado. Alvarado is the head pastor of Total Grace Christian Center. Pastor Shaun King, worked closely with Bishop Alvarado at Total Grace. King has said he believes the allegations are true.  He says his heart goes out to the families affected by the Bishop’s actions.

Bishop Johnathan Alvarado was once the Minister of Music at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia. He founded Total Grace Christian Center in 1992.
