Jericho City of Praise Church Members Withhold Tithes and Offerings and Board Sues Pastor In Retaliation

You know some of these church boards are just down right evil. We are sorry but it is true. They know they have power and authority over many things concerning the church and they use and abuse that authority to the highest degree.

We want to thank our friends over at The Church Lady Blogs site for this exclusive. Apparently members of Jericho City of Praise are sick and tired of the church board having so much control that they feel they should not disclose how the church’s finances are being distributed and used.  We are so happy because the members have now been withholding tithes and offerings until they get the financial information they want from the board.

In retaliation, Jericho City of Praise church board wants to now sue Pastor Joel Peeples  because of what the church members have done; or should we say, have not done. This is the messiest church board we have ever heard of and we are praying for the board to be broken up and reconstructed.

Check out the letter sent to The Church Lady about the lawsuit below:

Church Lady,

Thank you for your continued prayers. Pastor Joel remains our Pastor much to the dismay of the self appointed rogue board.  He is moving forward with the vision despite the attempts to thwart him.  Our congregation stands firmly behind our pastor and we are adding souls weekly.  We continue to stand in the gap for our Pastor.  We are fighting spiritual wickedness in high places.  This unelected self appointed rogue board is retaliating against Pastor Joel and Chairman Meadows because the congregation is not giving our tithes and offerings to them. They cannot do anything to the congregation so they are going after Pastor Joel.  If fact they have refused our repeated requests for a congregational meeting.  They have yet to stand before the congregation to introduce themselves.  They have asked the Judge to find Pastor Joel and Chairman Meadows in contempt of court.  Pastor Joel has not taken any money, tithes or offerings that belong to Jericho. Take a look at what they are asking the court to order. www.peopleofpraisemd It’s clear that their only concern is money.  They do not care about winning souls, the congregation or the ministry, only the money. Their lawyer is getting rich off of the church. It’s unbelievable.  We cannot make this stuff up.

To God be all the glory!
