Child Sexual Abuse Lawsuit Filed Against Second Baptist Church, located on John Barrow Road in Little Rock, and former Pastor Ivan Henry Lambert

July 20, 2023

The lawsuit alleges Pastor Lambert groomed and sexually abused the victim beginning when she was only 17. Much of the grooming behavior and inappropriate interaction occurred in open view of the congregation and its leaders, including the former Senior Pastor of Second Baptist.  Some of the most extreme forms of sexual abuse occurred regularly in the offices of Second Baptist pastors.

The victim, who has chosen to remain anonymous, is seeking just financial compensation for the profound and devastating damages inflicted upon her due to the events that transpired both on and off the campus of Second Baptist Church. The allegations made in the lawsuit are deeply troubling and demand immediate attention and accountability.

Attorney Joshua Gillispie is at the forefront of this significant legal effort and is currently investigating all leads pertaining to similar cases involving Second Baptist Church. He is committed to holding any responsible parties accountable.

“We stand firmly with the victim and all survivors of sexual abuse. Our primary objective is to seek justice for this victim and to show organizations like Second Baptist that the days of getting away with child sexual abuse are over,” stated Attorney Joshua Gillispie. “We implore anyone with pertinent information related to this case or any other instances of sexual abuse to come forward and assist us in pursuing their justice.”
