A Nashville pastor says someone has vandalized vans at 15 churches across the metro in the last two weeks.

Monterey Lee is the pastor at Celebration Christian Center in North Nashville. He says someone cut the catalytic converter from both of his vans last week. Catalytic converters reduce emissions of three harmful compounds found in your car.

"When you turn it on it sounds like a freight train," said Lee

He uses the vans to deliver food to 100 families every week, pick up kids for the youth ministry, and pick up the elderly for church. He is now unable to use the vans and forced to use his personal vehicle. Volunteers are also helping drop off food and pick up members of his congregation, but says it's taking a hit on attendance.
