False Profit: How an El Mirage Preacher Swindled Followers

1 of 15

 

Guadalupe Davila Jr., a self-proclaimed pastor, delivers a sermon at Primera Iglesia Bautista Camino al Cielo, a small church in El Mirage.

Guadalupe Davila Jr. isn't standing at the pulpit of his small church in El Mirage preaching to the congregation about living a godly life. He isn't inside the baptismal font, waist-deep in water and immersing new members and cleansing them of their sins. And he's not at the church's learning center giving children a lesson about the evils of lying.

Instead, on this warm day in May, the 47-year-old is sitting in a crowded El Mirage courthouse waiting for his turn to stand before a city judge.
