A Virginia pastor and his wife have been convicted of defrauding members of their congregation and investors in a Nigerian oil scheme.

Terry Wayne Millender, 53 and Brenda Millender, 57, were convicted by a federal jury Monday of a $2 million fraud scheme, according to the United States Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Terry Millender is the former senior pastor of Victorious Life Church in Alexandria.

Prosecutors said the couple recruited investors for companies they said provided small loans to poor people in developing countries and helped broker Nigerian oil deals. The Millenders used investor money to pay for golf trips, a birthday party, and to help purchase a $1.75 million home, prosecutors said.

The Millenders are set to be sentenced in March.
