Youth pastor engaged in 'inappropriate' sexual activity with teens, New Jersey prosecutors say

WYCKOFF, N.J. - Prosecutors say the youth pastor of a northern New Jersey church engaged in "inappropriate" sexual activity with two teenage girls in a church youth group and shared explicit text messages with other teen girls.

Thirty-seven-year-old David Hayman, of Oradell, faces two counts of sexual assault and five counts of child endangerment. His bail was set at $250,000 and it wasn't known Saturday if he has retained a lawyer.

Officials say Hayman was dismissed by the Cornerstone Christian Church in Wyckoff church last summer, when its leaders learned of the text messages.

Hayman allegedly engaged in sexual activity with two 16-year-old girls and exchanged sexually explicit videos with them. He also allegedly exchanged sexually explicit text messages with three other teenage girls.
