ATLANTA - A fourth young male member of Bishop Eddie Long's megachurch says the prominent pastor coerced him into a sexual relationship.

Attorney B.J. Bernstein says she is filing a lawsuit Friday on behalf of a member of New Birth Charlotte. New Birth Charlotte is a satellite church run by Long in Charlotte, N.C. The man met Long in May 2005.

The lawsuit says the bishop took the teenager to Kenya in July 2005 when he was 17 and engaged in sexual activities with him. It said that Long later encouraged him to move to Atlanta, where the activity continued until early 2009.

The other three men who filed the lawsuit were 17- and 18-year-old members of the church when they say Long abused his spiritual authority to seduce them.
