More details on the Willow Creek Community church are emerging. According to the Chicago Tribune, Willow Creek has paid out $3.25M to settle two sexual abuse cases of two developmentally disabled boys. The abuser, Robert Sobczak, plead guilty to these charges that took place in 2013. Earlier this year the church's lead pastor resigned after further investigations from the church proved that some allegations were true.
In a statement to FOX32 news, the church said that they "have worked with law enforcement and security experts to learn how this happened and how we can ensure it never happens again,” the church said.
