According to Tulsa Police, Gregory Ivan Hawkins, 54, had sex with a 15-year-old several times.

The teenager said the encounters began in April of 2012 and continued until January 2013, occurring at a home, a hotel, in a car at River Parks, at a hotel and on church property.

Police also have two recorded phone calls between the girl and Hawkins.

Hawkins was arrested in late June and charged Wednesday with six counts of child sexual abuse.

Hawkins is a pastor at Zion Plaza Church in Tulsa.

He took over the ministry in 2003 after his brother, pastor Nico Padillow, was murdered.
