Bishop Darryl Brister Closes Houston Church Unbeknownst to Church Members
The pastor of a church in the center of a half-million-dollar lawsuit is moving back to New Orleans, and parishioners at his Stafford church want to know what that means for their money.
According to parishioners, Bishop Darryl Brister announced Sunday that God wanted him to focus 100 percent on the New Orleans church. That service would be the last at the Beacon of Light church in Houston.
Parishioners wondered about the assets poured into the Stafford church. An Infiniti KPRC Local 2 spotted parked outside is registered to the church. Darryl Brister’s home in Sienna Plantation is worth more than $500,000.
The phone numbers listed for the church are all out of order. A woman at the New Orleans church confirmed that the Stafford church was closing. She said she did not know what would happen to the remaining funds from the Stafford church, if there were any.
Bishop Darryl Brister is facing a $500,000 lawsuit from contractors who said they were never paid for a Louisiana church built in 2009.
