JAILBIRDS DIGITAL LLC reached out to New Life Christian Church Chickasha on February 22nd, regarding Reiber’s arrest. On February 23rd, New Life Christian Church Chickasha responded with the following statement that they have shared with other news sources as well. They stated:

“The leadership of New Life Christian Church learned this weekend of serious allegations made against senior minister Matt Reiber.  His alleged actions did not occur at our church or during a church function.  Such allegations, if true, are reprehensible and inexcusable but were not consistent with what we observed of Matt’s service to our church and community for over a year.  Matt has denied these allegations and although he is presumed innocent under the law, the legal system will determine the merits or lack thereof in due time.  Regardless, Matt has resigned his position and is no longer associated with our church, effective immediately.  We ask for prayers on behalf of everyone involved in this horrible situation. “
