Acton Bowen: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

A prominent Alabama youth pastor who founded his own ministry and who has ties to several high-profile figures in the evangelical community has been accused of molesting a teen boy, police say. Few details about the case and the victim have been released to protect the boy’s privacy, but he is between the ages of 13 to 16, and is a family acquaintance of the suspect, according to police.

. . .

After his arrest, Bowen took down his website for Acton Bowen Outreach, leaving a message stating, “This site has been temporarily removed.” Previously, the “about Acton” section of the website stated:

Speaker, Best-selling author, visionary. Many words are used to describe him, but Acton Bowen’s only passion has been to connect people with the one, true God. Once recognized as one of the nation’s leading student pastors, God has clearly blessed Acton with the ability to reach today’s high tech, attention-lacking culture.

For 12 years Acton served in the local church, led a city-wide student Bible study in Gadsden, AL, and was also was the host of x|roads TV, a worldwide broadcast viewed weekly by millions of teens and adults in every city in America and over 170 countries around the world on network television. Acton is now co-host of Top3 on the JuceTV Network and a regular contributor on Fox News in NYC where he serves as a correspondent on Faith and Religion.
