The Rev. Wes Feltner, lead pastor at Berean Baptist Church.

Allegations that a Burnsville pastor had inappropriate sexual relationships with two teenage women 17 years ago in Indiana have shaken the congregation at his south metro megachurch, resulting in his taking a leave of absence and removing him from consideration for hire by a church in Tennessee.

"We understand the nature of these claims and we take them very seriously," said Berean Baptist Church elders in a statement on Twitter and given Sunday at the church, listed in recent years as among the nation's fastest-growing Protestant congregations. They said they have enlisted a neutral party to investigate.
