DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — A Durham church pastor has been removed from his position after he was arrested on child sex charges last week, according to church officials.
David Keandre Dixon, 37, was arrested by Raleigh police at his home in Raleigh on Thursday, records show.
On Monday, a Durham police news release stated that Dixon had been arrested and charged by that department. He is charged with three counts of statutory sex offense with a child and one count of indecent liberties of a child.
Dixon is being held in the Durham County Jail under a $10,000,000 bond.
Social media accounts indicate he is a pastor at Kingdom City Life Empowerment Church at 1100 Holloway St. in Durham.
However, Sunday evening, an official with the Victory Christian International Fellowship of Churches addressed the issue with Dixon.
Mario L. Davis, the presiding bishop and chief apostle with Victory Christian International Fellowship of Churches, said in an email that Dixon was removed from “all official capacities.”
No other information was released.
Dixon had a court appearance set for Monday in Durham County.
