    An Edenton minister has been relieved “of all responsibilities in any official capacity” until further notice.

    A statement from Rocky Hock Baptist Church in Edenton said that Jonathan Winfield Rose, 35, formerly a music and children’s minister at the church, had been relieved of his duties July 25 after contact with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

    “We further make it known that we will support, pray, and minister to (Rose) and his family to assist through this difficult time in his life and in the lives of the members of Rocky Hock Baptist Church,” said James E. Horton, senior pastor.

    Rose has been accused of propositioning a 13-year-old Cumberland County girl by computer, authorities said. He was detained July 25 in Buncombe County at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys in Black Mountain. He was transferred to Cumberland County. Authorities say that between June 11-29, Rose asked the girl to take part in sex acts. His bail was set at $50,000.
