Jordan Baird, a 25-year-old youth pastor, pop singer, husband of former Hillsong United singer and songwriter Michelle Fragar, and son of senior pastors David and Jo Ann Baird of The Life Church in Virginia has been arrested and charged with three counts of indecent liberties by a custodian including exposing himself to a teenager inside his father's church.
Jordan was a contestant on CW's "The Next" in the fall of 2012 and placed second in the competition. He was mentored by Joe Jonas during the competition, which led to a relationship with The Jonas Brothers and The Jonas Group according to Breedlove Music. In the summer of 2013, he opened for the Jonas Brothers tour and moved to Los Angeles where he signed with Jonas Group Management in the fall of that year – the same year police say he committed one of his alleged crimes.
Jordan's legal troubles started on July 7, when detectives from the Special Victims Unit of the Prince William County Police Department in Virginia, responded to investigate inappropriate contact which was reported to have occurred at the Life Church located at 11234 Balls Ford Rd in Manassas in 2015. more >>
The film "Pass the Light," which encourages younger generations to share the love of Jesus instead of cursing the darkness, is gearing up for an online release this month following its success in select theaters nationwide.
The movie follows Steve Bellafiore (Cameron Palatas), a religiously devout teen who yearns to become a football starter and works twice as hard as his high school peers to accomplish that goal.
Steve's work ethic and kindness radiate through his life. Upset by his parents' estrangement, Steve is even more disturbed by the message of hatred and intolerance espoused by Franklin Baumann ( Jon Gries), an extremist candidate for Congress. Steve wants to make the point that Baumann's exclusionary and fear-based message has very little to do with his Christian perception of Christ's teachings. more >>
