Tulsa's Christian Education Alliance (CEA), a ministry that serves home school families, said its principal Jeffrey Goss is no longer an employee after he was arrested on child pornography charges.

The Tulsa Hills Church of the Nazarene released a statement saying leaders "were shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the arrest of Principal Jeffrey Goss... nothing in Mr. Goss's training or background check raised any red flags with regard to his suitability to serve as principal."

The statement also said that both CEA and the church are cooperating with all agencies in the matter.

On Tuesday, Goss was arrested at his home after federal agents searched a warrant.

Homeland Security agents said Goss used a mobile app to view the child porn. An affidavit says an undercover investigation started in 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona.

In the same investigation, another local church leader was arrested this week on child pornography charges.

Revered Ronald Robinson from the "Welcome Back Community Center" in Turley is accused of possessing graphic images of children. Investigators said Robinson admitted he fantasized about raping and hurting children.

Both Robinson and Goss are in custody at the Tulsa County Jail.
