Its always been a family buisiness. John thepreacher (ha) his mom treasurer Kevin assistant preacher Carrie school. Even the deacons made no desissions without his permission. All the power has went to his head
I dont even know how hes still driving with all his tickets in the past. People in the church should see that even charged in these points, guilty on not by court yet he has no buisiness in the pulpit.

Since: Nov 12

To Someone who knows:
I am so sickend about all of this. I can't read anymore of the threads. I met Nicole and Whitney a year ago this past July, and just from the little time they were at my aunt's house I knew something wasnt right. All I can say is I give Nicole a lot of credit for comming forward and I pray to god that the preacher rots in hell. As for Linda I have no words except how can she not stand behind her daughters, her mother and father must be turning in their grave. Mary and Charlie never raised the girls like this and I pray that she comes to her senses. Whitney is to young and scared to come forward but all I can hope for is that these young lovely girls get the help that they need and justice is served soon. STAY STRONG NICOLE!!!!!!

Then you know what I'm saying is the truth! You also should know that she is not gonna attack her mother because she is her mother regardless ! She still has hope her mother will defend her and we both know its never gonna happen. Just as soon as this mess is dealt with social services needs to go in and take the other child out !
Yes its the truth! I know lindas not going to come forth at the trial..not for nicole...I hope to god hes not touched whitney! Shes such a sweet child and i hope her mother watches her when hes around but i bet she dont cuz hes taken her to the dentist alone...after all this came out and after nicole left...she acts withdrawn at times and makes me think hes doing stuff to her also...Social Services should have tAken her away from them also...As for some of the people in the church listening to him on sunday ...I think its a good thing there staying there for now cuz there seeing and hesring things to use against him and i think this will help nicole in the end...just saying ...but the people are having there doubts now about him becuz hes looking more and more guilty to them...i do know this as a fact!

Linda even had johns name on the girls checking account and savings account! When she left from there they took the girls money ! It was her school money to pay for her books!!! They say he has Linda's money in an account with his name on it so welfare can't track it! Looks like to me it would be a whole lot less trouble just working!!!

This is true. I went to the same college... Multiple times on my class breaks I would see him in the parking lot, waiting on her. The poor soul looked like she carried the weight of the world on her shoulders having to walk to his vehicle. You could tell she was unhappy... And she was ALWAYS with him... ALONE... Out buying school clothes, out getting food, being "babysat" and other things. One thing id like to know is as a mother, why would you leave your child with him knowing hes a dirty old perv cuz ur having an affair with him!? The creeper gave me the heebie jeebies and as a child I could see through his act. As for karrie.. Shes her daddy with long hair... Has claimed salvation twice and it aint done a thing for her. They are all sick.. And linda doesnt deserve a child. Im praying for the girl, that she gets tgrough this and gets the justice and closure she deserves when they sink his butt in jail for the lifetime he took away from an innocent child.
Good for her

I sure hope this young woman is given the break she so deserves and I hope she succeeds in everything she does in life and I hope she leaves this trashy bunch behind and I hope that all the ones that knew what was going on and did nothing are put in jail also.
