Police officials confirm that earlier this month, they were contacted about a possible Sexual Assault, and allege that Reiber touched a child in an inappropriate manner.

He was listed as the Senior Pastor at New Life Christian Church of Chickasha, according to their website.

Two days after the arrest, the church released the following statement:

“The leadership of New Life Christian Church learned this weekend of serious allegations made against senior minister Matt Reiber. His alleged actions did not occur at our church or during a church function. Such allegations, if true, are reprehensible and inexcusable but were not consistent with what we observed of Matt’s service to our church and community for over a year. Matt has denied these allegations and although he is presumed innocent under the law, the legal system will determine the merits or lack thereof in due time. Regardless, Matt has resigned his position and is no longer associated with our church, effective immediately. We ask for prayers on behalf of everyone involved in this horrible situation.”
