popular american pastor convicted

A Virginia pastor and his wife have been convicted of
defrauding members of their congregation and investors in a Nigerian oil
scheme.

According to the United States Attorney’s office for the Eastern
District of Virginia, 53-year-old Terry Wayne Millender and 57-year-old
Brenda Millender were convicted by a federal jury Monday of a $2 million
fraud scheme.

Terry Millender is the former senior pastor of Victorious Life Church in Alexandria.

Prosecutors said the couple recruited investors for companies they
said provided small loans to poor people in developing countries and
helped broker Nigerian oil deals.

Prosecutors said the Millenders used investor money to pay for golf
trips, a birthday party, and to help purchase a $1.75 million home.

The Millenders are set to be sentenced in March.
