BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Youth evangelist Matt Pitt remains behind bars in Shelby County, and the ministry he served in has released a statement on the status of the ministry as it continues without Pitt at the helm.

Pitt faces charges of impersonating a peace officer.

He pleaded guilty to similar charges in 2012.

Over the weekend, The Basement, the ministry Pitt helped found in 2004, released a statement regarding the situation.

The statement read:

“The Basement is stronger than ever. No one involved in The Basement is concerned about it ending or slowing down.”

Pitt is scheduled to appear in court in late September.
