Leonard wired the money to Brown, and the pair verbally agreed that Faith World would repay the loan, said Leonard's attorney, Howard Marks of Winter Park.
The suit, filed in Orange County Circuit Court last month, says Leonard has seen none of the money, despite demands for repayment. Marks said Leonard knew Brown because the Orlando pastor had performed at the 10,000-member Denver church.

Faith World attorney Mark Matthew O'Mara would not comment on the suit, saying he had not seen it yet.
