Silas Edward Sams surrendered to the Carter County Sheriff's Department on Monday following his indictment by a county grand jury on a charge of theft over $60,000.
Sheriff Chris Mathes said an investigation of Sams began after church leaders came to the sheriff's department seeking help.
Following the investigation, a presentment was sent to the grand jury on Nov. 8, which accused Sams of taking money and other items over a period extending from Sept. 1, 2006 and July 9, 2013.
Mathes said the exact amount of the missing money could not be determined, but said it was over $100,000.
Sams is out of jail on $25,000 bond.
