When a person dies without a will it is called “intestate.” There will a state law called the intestate succession law. It will say who is entitled to an interest in the estate.
The property will have to go through probate to properly change hands to the new owner.
If the pastor has himself appointed the personal representative for the estate, he would have the right, I would think, to initiate on the behalf of the estate an eviction action against the occupants.
This is a situation where a probate attorney is needed for advice and to probate the estate.
