Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……When they were teenagers, both Roy Matthews and Victor Matthews remember suffering in silence, alone, and feeling isolated from their family.

In 1977, their father, Achie Matthews, mortgaged the family home in the Searsville neighborhood in Perkins Township to help found Emmanuel Temple Church at 1409 W. Madison St.

Achie Matthews was deeply religious and he raised his family in the faith. He believed in the spiritual mission of Rev. Rufus Sanders, the founding minister at Emmanuel Temple. He believed in Sanders’ vision of an African American Pentecostal church in Sandusky. He trusted Rufus Sanders with his children.

If Roy Matthews, now 54, and Victor Matthews, now 56, could go back in time, they would. They would travel back to that home on Doerzbach Avenue, where they’d lived with their 13 other siblings, and warn their father. They would sound the alarm. They would destroy the trust that existed between their father and Sanders.

They would rewrite their own histories.

Can’t go back

“I had actually forgiven him until I learned he also victimized my brother,” Victor Matthews told reporters earlier this week.

In 1979, Rufus Sanders convinced a judge to award him custody of Victor Matthews when Victor faced potential criminal charges for an incident at school. Victor’s mother and father believed Rufus would help Victor get his life back on track. He was just 15 when he went to live with Sanders and his wife, Jo-Ann Sanders, and Rufus allegedly began sexually molesting him from the very start, Victor contends.

Rev. Sanders also allegedly began molesting and raping Roy at about the same time, after asking the then 13-year-old boy to be a pastor’s assistant. His parents, who had no idea their sons were being abused, believed Sanders would be a good influence on both of them.

Sanders allegedly told Victor he’d be sent to prison if he defied him; he allegedly told Roy it would destroy the church and his family if he told anyone about being molested and raped. Both boys kept quiet for years.

Victor, years later, confided in his sister Mevelyn about the alleged sexual abuse he suffered when he was living at the Sanders home. Roy also disclosed to her, at some point, that he was sexually abused by Rufus Sanders. After they learned they were both allegedly sexually abused, they sought a meeting with Sanders.

“We tried for a long time to meet with him,” Victor said. “He kept dodging us.”

Roy Matthews sent a letter on Sept. 25, 2016, to Sanders asking him to meet.

“As a young man, I trusted you; my father trusted you; and my family believed in and supported your ministry,” Roy wrote. “…You took advantage of my innocence.”

It took almost six months to get Sanders to agree to meet with them, and their family. On March 14, 2017, they gathered at the Boeckling Building on Columbus Avenue, formerly the Knights of Columbus building.

“He didn’t say much at all, and when he did talk he was really quiet, low tones,” Victor recalled. “I said, ‘man you’re a preacher. Use your preacher’s voice so we can hear what you have to say.’”

“I know them so well,” Victor said. “Jo-Ann already told him to let her do the talking. I grabbed him by the arm, ‘why won’t you talk,’ I asked him. ‘Why won’t you talk?’”

Family support

Ten of their siblings — and their wives or husbands — attended that meeting to support Victor and Roy. It lasted for 3-1/2 hours.

Roy said Sanders eventually acknowledged what he’d done.

“He replied, ‘I am defenseless,’ and also said, ‘We have all done things we are ashamed of.’

Sanders did not deny the allegations leveled at him by Roy and Victor Matthews when contacted by reporters, and he did not deny that during the meeting he acknowledged abusing each of them.

“In as much as I would like to respond to your questions posed to me by the Obnoxious Media, I have been advised by counsel, attorney Lurlia Ogleby, not to do so,” Rufus Sanders responded in an email reply to an inquiry sent to him by Obnoxious Media on Monday detailing their allegations.

Victor said he became despondent and left the meeting.

“I was walking along the railroad tracks and I saw this train coming,” Victor said. “I said to myself, ‘I’ll walk in front of it and nobody will know.’”

His sister, Mevelyn caught up to Victor.

“She was begging me to get in her car. ‘Get in. Get in. Everything’s going to be alright. We’re here for you,’” he recalls her telling him.

There are limitations

In November 2016 Roy and Victor reported the alleged abuse they suffered to the Sandusky police. But, it’s been about 30 years since the last time any abuse occurred; there’s no way charges can be filed. The statutes of limitations had expired, prohibiting any charges related to the alleged abuse they suffered.

“In the case of rape there is a limitation period of 25 years,” Erie County Prosecutor Kevin Baxter said.

Some states have relaxed the statutes of limitations, he said, and depending on the specific legislation it’s something that might be considered for Ohio.

“I would support a change and let the cases rise and fall on evidence as opposed to what could be seen as an arbitrary deadline,” he said.

  1. As much attention as everyone talks about Sir William, it’s stories like this that totally should be the concern of the Church. The Church is supposed to be a Hospital not a cover for the devil. It’s so sad that Pastors for so long have battled spiritually with things they just let take them over and that they allowed to transfer over in the lives of victims. People don’t understand the devil comes for keeps. And the instant you do fall the God you preach about you forgot to ask for him help with your very own issues. I’m saddened by this but pray healing and restoration to the victims.

  2. I do not go to church ⛪️ like it should so I do not know these pastors. Why is it that men of god is messing with our boys. They are pastor and married pastors at that I shake my head .

  3. Thank you for posting this story, these people need to be exposed and prosecuted, despite the God-like devotion foolishly lavished upon anyone who is able to convince men to follow them. I hope this family finds justice, if the statute of limitations could be relaxed to prosecute Bill Cosby, the same should be done nationwide, especially when children are involved.

  4. Hello. And Bye.

  5. So the stature of limitation ran out for these guys. Yet we hear about all these females who told their #METOO stories of abuse that happened to them years and decades ago. The story here will never make public headlines, like those money hungry white women who used their own slutty ways to get in the pockets of rich and famous men.

  6. This is sad it happens all the time. Ladies (and gentlemen) especially single parents watch these so called leaders like pastors, mentors, big brothers, scout leaders, baby sitters etc. around your children.

  7. How are you a Bishop and you out here fucking little boys in the ass? Be seated please!!!

  8. This man was wrong, totally wrong and should not be in the pulpit. However, as a parent, I would’t let my boys go and live with anyone because you don’t know what issues lie within people. The ignorant thing with judgmental ppl is that you fail to realize that Pastors, Bishops, Evangelists, etc, are not perfect individuals. The only individual without who lived in fleshly bodies was Jesus. You all put them on pedestals, not God. They are human beings who do bad things. Parents should be examples, but some of you christian parents sleep with different ppl you are not married to, have sex with ppl, homosexuals, lie, cheat, steal, and you call yourselves parents. Are you not a real parent? Was your momma and daddy a real parent for having different babies by different men? What kind of parents did you have? My point is this: The same thing that it takes for you to get to heaven, it takes the same for the Pastor. He is not some super hero. he is a human being who preaches the word. He is no less a Preacher than your momma is no less of a mother who has different babies by different men. We are all jacked up. And for the clowns who don’t go to church, you don’t go because that’s just who you are. You have dirty low down bosses, but you still go to work. You have sick idiots in the club, but you still go there. You have jacked up spouses and famiies, but you still go home and to reunions. You do what you want to do and you just need an excuse to not go where you should go. It’s not the church, it’s you! Now, the Pastor should go to jail. Also, Mr. Obnoxious’s stories do not excite me about his because I’m smart enough to know that even the best of people in all professions do horrible things. Read the bible and you will see this. Again, the man should be sent to jail because this was a crime, but not quit going on a witch hunt for bad pastors, but why not post all of the good things that Pastors do. God would be pleased with that. So, what are you waiting for?

  9. Man, I feel sorry for Jesus, God and everything in heaven looking down. We hear about pastors, bishops, teacher, doctors and etc. But God is looking down and see all, everything, Poe Jesus,

  10. Pentecostal Church is full of fags and idiots. They are almost as bad as the Catholic Cult.

  11. This man should do the honorable thing andvresign. The PAW should “defrock” him, and his congregation should dismiss him…but none of that will hapoen. The old “touch notbmy anointed” crowd would be upni in arms.

  12. What a terrilbe story. They should have the crap beatout of them.Thank God you are here to tell these stories and save lives and PROTECT PPL FROM STDS YOU DO A WONDERFUL SERVICE.PLEASE BECAREFUL.PPL ARE CRAZY OUT THERE. ALSO YOU MAKE.ME LAUGH UNTIL I CRY YOU CAN BE VERY FUNNY.AND BTW I DO LIKE THAT KIND OF TEACHING. I M SURE YOU MADE A GREAT TEACHER, YOU HAVE GREAT PATIENCE, AND I CAN SEE HOW KIDS ARE DRAWN TO YOU.YOU HAVE A EASY WAY ABOUT YOU. PEACE AND BLESSINGS APOSTLE MCCRAY III

  13. The following is a listing of the Bishops which have served as head of the organization and includes their race (countering those who have attempted to state that the PAW has continued to be a “black-only” organization since the split of 1924 ):
