OKLAHOMA CITY -

A former Oklahoma City youth pastor accused of sex crimes was formally charged on Thursday.

Brian Burchfield, 42, was charged with four counts of Sexual Solicitation of a Minor by use of Technology. Authorities arrested Burchfield on July 29. At the time he was serving as the Young Adult Pastor at Quail Springs Baptist Church. 

Burchfield’s arrest came after a mother of one of the alleged victims discovered inappropriate texts on her son's phone. There are a total of four victims who are all teen boys ranging from 14 to 17 years old.

News 9 learned more about Burchfield’s past after the story broke. For about eight years, Burchfield was the youth minister at the Immanuel Baptist Church in Shawnee. About a year ago, he left and took a new position in Oklahoma City at the Quail Springs Baptist Church. But court documents state he was still communicating with teen boys from the Shawnee youth group, and it was sexual in nature.

To this point, investigators believe that Burchfield never engaged physically with any of the victims and detectives do not believe anyone else is involved.

The case remains under investigation.
