RICHMOND, VA (WRIC) - Joe Donahue will be the new leader of the Richmond Outreach Center. 

Rev. Jonathan Falwell, who's been helping in the search for a new pastor, made the announcement at the service Saturday night.

Donahue and his wife come from Georgia, where Donahue has been working as a student pastor at First Redeemer Church since 2008.

You can read more about Joe Donahue on his website. 

The announcement comes almost a year after the ROC's former pastor--Geronimo Aguilar-- was arrested. A grand jury indicted "Pastor G" on felony child sex assault charges in two separate cases. He's accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl and her 13-year-old sister while he was their youth pastor in Fort Worth, Texas in the late 1990's.

ROC leaders say Saturday marks the beginning of a step forward.
