The First Baptist Church of Hammond was set to vote on a new pastor Sunday.

Pastor John Wilkerson was the candidate being considered for a Sunday-night vote.

If approved, Wilkerson would replace former Pastor Jack Schaap who was fired last July.

Schaap was scheduled to be sentenced this week after pleading guilty to having sex with an underage parishioner.
