The former pastor of the Wellspring Church near Hudsonville officially faces two felony embezzlement charges after the court hearing Wednesday morning.

Gary Petersen is said to have used Church money to pay for personal vacations.  One of them, a cruise, was said to have cost Wellspring $1,400.  

The Prosecutor alleges that Petersen also opened a charge card at Costco to which  only he had authorized access.   

Petersen currently is pastor of The Rock Church in Grandville.
