Why are youth pastors in the Christian faith so often arrested?
They are generally in their twenties, and it happens a lot.

Really bad generalization, and even a Straw Man fallacy.

Really? None of those in my church have ever been arrested for anything.

Predators go where the victims are.

For two reasons. Firstly, satan is able to quote the scriptures ... we know this because of when Jesus was tempted in the wilderness and secondly because, unfortunately, wherever there are children ... there will be a tiny minority of perverts who are only there to gain access to them.
In terms of an answer to counter this you have to look deeply into the scriptures along the lines of testing these people in terms of their life styles outside of their jobs and there needs to be complete transparency about the conduct of such people ... whether they are aware of that or not.
It is an appalling scenario in which people who work with children virtually need to be spied on because of the extent of this problem.
However, despite the obvious consternation that such a course of action would cause, one simple fact remains true today as it was yesterday and as it will always be. Those who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear.
It has to be said, however, that there is no age limitation or guideline as regards genuine predators and perverts nor indeed is it purely confined to one gender so vigilance without the vigilante in the right measure is the order of the day.

There is a misconception that just because someone believes in God that they stop sinning. We all are sinners, Christians included. We all need the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to wash us clean from our wrongdoings; that is why it is called grace. If it were by our deeds alone, we would all be going to hell as we all fall short. In God's mercy for us, he came in the flesh to die and to give us the chance at life. If anyone, including you and I, come before him and put our trust and faith in the Son and what he's done, he will not only let us live, but he will give us everlasting life in joy, peace, and splendor.
So why then do people who are pastors in Christian faiths often get arrested? Well, considering the number of those who don't, I wouldn't agree with your statement, but those who do, do so because they fell into sin. It is our hope that they turn from that behavior and God will use them still for his kingdom.

I don't really trust practically any churches, I think pretty much all of them are corrupt in doctrine and other ways.
Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.
The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death
