Pastor: Criminals Who Don't Like My Clean Up Efforts Set Church On Fire

The owner of a Jacksonville church undergoing renovations believes he knows why his church was the target of arsonists.

Elder Joseph Morgan, pastor and founder of Wings of Faith Ministries on Hargett Street has been renovating the building into a church since 2005.

Morgan suspects criminals in the area set the church on fire because they didn't like his efforts to clean up the neighborhood.

While investigators say the fire was intentionally set, the investigation is ongoing into how it started.

Morgan says they did not have insurance. They plan to hold church services in a nearby building and are accepting donations to begin renovations again.
