Its pastor accused of sex abuse, Sanger church leaves Southern Baptist Convention amid inquiry


SANGER — The church whose pastor, Dale “Dickie” Amyx, was accused of abusing and impregnating a teenage girl in the mid-1970s left the Southern Baptist Convention this year shortly after the SBC said the church needed to be investigated further due to the allegations.

Bolivar Baptist Church, along FM455 west of Sanger, was one of three Southern Baptist churches the SBC identified as needing further inquiry into how allegations of sexual abuse were handled.
