Robert C. Stine, 60, of Middleton, who was pastor at Midvale Baptist Church, 821 S. Midvale Blvd., was charged  with two counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child for alleged incidents about four years ago in which a girl who was then about 10 said he touched her improperly during a day camp that was held at the church.

State regulators revoked the license of the daycare, called Kid’s Best Child Care, on June 30, 2023 after the girl’s mother reported the alleged abuse to police on April 21, 2023 according to a criminal complaint.

A page from the Midvale Baptist Church website that had contained a biography of Stine has been taken down, along with the rest of the church’s website. There was no answer at the church’s phone number Thursday afternoon. 

The Wayback Machine website captured the web page from the church website that contained Stine’s biography as it appeared on Aug. 2. The brief biography states Stine had been pastor at Midvale since August 2007 and described him as “a caring and thinking man who has a heart for the community.”

It states he had also led churches in Texas and Iowa and led the Baptist Student Union at UW-Madison.
