Pastor Accused Of Fleecing Orphans Group

A federal warrant has been issued for an Indianapolis pastor accused of misusing hundreds of thousands of dollars meant to help build a church.

The Rev. Wayne Taft Harris Jr. borrowed $482,000 to build a church at 2860 Euclid Ave., but the building was never constructed, and Harris hasn’t been heard from since, a federal lawsuit alleges.

According to court documents, Harris’ nonprofit corporation, known as Kingdom Builders Faith Church, Inc., took a loan from Teen Missions, a group that provides money to help congregations build places of worship, and then uses money made from the loan to feed and clothe the poor in 108 countries.
