Cambridge, MN (The Weekly Vice) – Mark Holm, a 54-year-old youth director was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly engaged in an ongoing sexual relationship with a teenage girl he was mentoring.

Authorities with the Isanti County Police Department allege that Holm engaged in sexual conduct with a 17-year-old girl who was a member of the faith-based organization Young Life, of which Holm was the director.

According to the arrest report, the allegations came to light when the girl's parents became concerned at the amount of time their daughter was spending with Holm and decided to check the teen's phone while she was in the shower.

Investigators say the girl's mother found a number of texts from Holm, including one that read "I love you forever and beyond." After the girl's parents confronted her about the messages, she admitted to having a relationship. One that allegedly included Holm and the teen having sex in his office 10 to 12 time over a period of several months.

Investigators also reportedly found nude photos that had been exchanged between the pair and the content of their discussions included plans to run away together or engaging in a suicide pact.

Holm was arrested at the Young Life facility, and a spokesman for the organization affirmed that he had been placed on administrative leave, but would not be terminated until the investigation is complete.

Mark Holm was charged with third degree sexual misconduct. He is being held on $500,000 without conditions, $100,000 with conditions.
