Eddie Hilburn, a married pastor and father of three, resigned from his post at The Woodlands First Baptist Church in Texas after he allegedly paid $80 for sexual activities to an undercover Harris County Sheriff's deputy. As soon as the deputy was paid he was arrested.

The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary graduate also served as senior pastor of churches in Texas, planted a church in Wisconsin, and served as student pastor prior to joining The Woodlands.
