JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (WIBW) --A hearing for a Junction City minister at the center of a church sex scandal has been continued.

Jordan Young, 25, appeared in Geary County District Court Tuesday for a status hearing.

Young is facing child molestation charges in two separate cases stemming from an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct at Faith Tabernacle Apostolic Church in Junction City where he had been serving as the music minister.

The proceedings were pushed back to September 6th at 9 AM when a hearing will be held to address both of Young’s criminal cases.

Young was originally taken into custody at the Junction City Police Department at 11:30 AM on Monday, August 13, 2012.

He was arrested for Aggravated Indecent Liberties With a Child, Attempted Criminal Sodomy and Solicitation of a Child.

He was still in the Geary County Jail on Friday, August 17, 2012 and being held on a $250,000 bond from his first arrest when he was re-arrested for Aggravated Criminal Sodomy, Aggravated Indecent Liberties With a Child and Sexual Solicitation of a Child in connection with a second case involving a second victim.

Police say Young's arrests stem from an ongoing investigation into information his department received about a local church.

Jordan Young is the son of former Faith Tabernacle pastor Edwin Young, who reportedly recently and abruptly resigned.

Young's bond in his second case was also set at $250,000. He is being held in the Geary County Jail. He has been ordered not to have any contact with any alleged victims or anyone under the age of 18 unless they are under the supervision of an adult.

Prosecutors say the church investigation is ongoing.
