Pastor Mark Rivers

Pastor Mark Rivers, 45, of New Life Ministry in Zwolle was arrested on Monday, January 14 on a charge of cruelty to juveniles.

The arrest came after a complaint filed with the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office after the child was taken to a doctor.

Many were alarmed over the weekend after photos were posted online of some of the bruising on the child, and the doctor’s prognosis after a check.  The post has since been taken down or hidden.

Rivers posted a bond of $2,000 on the cruelty charge and was released.  He was also booked on a number of Many Police Department warrants for operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, speeding, and no insurance.  He paid the fines.
