The Windsor pastor accused of inappropriate contact with teen girls waived his right to a preliminary hearing Friday.

Pennsylvania State Police charged the Rev. Scott Allen Snyder, 35, of Windsor with two counts of corruption of minors Aug. 11.

Officers say Snyder kissed a 13-year-old girl from his congregation and sent thousands of text messages, including some obscene images, to her and another girl, who is 14.

Court documents state that Snyder admitted to the acts; however, he refuted the claims in an Aug. 15 e-mail to the York Daily Record/Sunday News.

His arraignment is set for 9 a.m. Oct. 24. Snyder's attorney, Joanne Tyler Floyd, declined to comment Monday.

Snyder grew up in Chanceford Township and is founding pastor of the nondenominational New Beginnings Bible Fellowship in Windsor, which also operates a Christian school for children.
