I am amazed that people are still talking about this church. So what if two staff members leave? That doesn't mean that they are leaving because the church is bad or because they don't like Pastor Ken. Sometimes God opens doors for people and directs them to go elsewhere. I've been in church my whole life. I've seen pastors leave, youth pastors leave, childrens pastors leave, young adult, etc. It's just part of life. Transition and change will happen in everyone's life. If two staff members leave then God will fill those positions. With that being said, we have an awesome staff at FWC and if two staff members do leave then it will be sad to see them go, but I wish them the best. Sometimes God sends people to a church for a long season and others a short season. I know this God works all things for our good. If God has called two of the staff members to go, then it will be for their good.

I get your point about God not going to fancy buildings, but that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with having nice church facilities if that is what you are meaning. If you have a business then you want to make it look nice. People are attracted to nice facilities. I would much rather go to a nice restaurant or a nice building, then some hole in the wall with trash all around it. God blesses the church with nice facilities. We have to respect those facilities and keep them clean and looking nice. I believe the way a church takes care of the facilities is a reflection of the people's attitudes toward God. Now I did here of a pastor with a golden toilet and dresser in his office. That is ridiculous. There is nothing wrong with having a fancy building as long as we put our focus on the one who gave us that building and not on the building itself. I have a feeling that you are jealous of the nice facility that FWC has. That is sad if you are. You should rejoice when a church is blessed to build or expand nice facilities. We should be going out to the world, but to tell me that God is against fancy buildings is absurd. If you don't believe, wait until you get to Heaven. If you think we have fancy buildings here, then wait until you get there. I haven't been to Heaven, but I've read of the streets of gold and the many manchines. Do we have to have fancy buildings to do the work of Christ, no, but there is nothing wrong with a fancy building.

just wondering if Steve and Teresa will get their very own "fog machine" to smoke the unsuspecting into their midst. It does appear that they both were overcome by that fog when Clint Brown was here.

So hows the church going? I think someone should use the freedom of information act to find out more about the investigation going on. That church is divided and people who dont like what the pastor did went and started having church in the old flat top arms place. Its a shame.

Clint Brown did not use fog in any of his messages that he preached at FWC. Tim Dyson did. I do not know Clint Brown or Tim Dyson, but I know Steve and Teresa they both have great hearts and are called to due great things for the kingdom. They have done a fantastic job with the youth department and they have done nothing, but good for the youth here. They have loved and ministered to every kid that has came through Liquid youth ministries doors. I have seen teens develop in a tremendous way spiritually since they have been here. I would seriously be careful of what you say about them because it might come back to bite you later. Steve and Teresa are not going to Dyson's church. Do not attack or criticize the Burkhalter's because they are following the leading of the Lord and pursuing their destiny. God has great plans for them and they are pursuing those plans. When God says go, then we have to obey. God will take care of the youth at FWC. Steve did not leave due to any problems at the church or because of money. He left because God opened a door for Him. God has seasons for all of us and the Burkhalters season is over here. This is a new season they are stepping into and I'm happy for them.

As for Family Worship Center and Pastor Wright, breakthrough is coming to this church. Pastor Wright has handled every attack with dignity because he is a true man of God. He could have given up, but God is his strength and has brought him through all this. All these attacks and criticisms are happening to develop him and prepare him for the great destiny to come. Pastor Wright has been attacked from the day his named was mentioned to be a candidate for FWC. No one can deny that he is meant to be here because look what all he has endured and yet he is still standing tall and preaching the gospel as powerful as ever. There have been several plans to destroy this man and have him removed as pastor of FWC and yet they have all failed. Even some his own staff tried to plot and have him removed so a certain former staff member could be head pastor, but that failed. Malicious, cruel intent, gossiping, and lying will get you no where in the kingdom. If any of you are wondering about FWC, the church has been growing every week, services have been amazing, and people are being equipped to the ministries God has called them to do. Attacks, rumors, and lying will all continue, but they will all fail. Pastor Wright will leave FWC when God says its time for him to leave. God has His hand on Pastor Wright and FWC and its only a matter a time before the Lord of the breakthrough brings His glory to FWC and this region. When that happens, some of you who have attacked this man and this church will run back to it and when you do Pastor Wright and the church will love you and welcome you back.

How is this church making a payment of 40,000.00 plus with so many people leaving? Did these 2 pastors leave because the church wasn't able to pay their salary?

The church is growing every week. I would say there has been over 100 new people come since January. I don't know how they are making the payment, but apparently they are. Wait a minute I know how, its because God is providing. The 2 pastors did not leave due to finances. One pastor received an incredible opportunity in Orlando, Florida. Even if they did leave due to finances, that doesn't give anyone the right to criticize Pastor Wright. If people remember, Pastor Shrade had to lay off some staff members due to finances, so sometimes that does happen. It's sad to see people have to leave due to finances, but that is a reality we have to face in this day and time. By the way, the people hired to take over the children and youth are awesome and will do a fantastic job. Anyone who was there Sunday knows that God is doing great things and only greater things are yet to come.

What happened to the days when men preached for the Glory of God! and not salaries. When there love for the church was far bigger than that of a dollar? I know they should be provided for, but should they be placed above all others? Almost on thrones? Jesus was a servant King! Jesus said to become like Him??????

This is exactly what is happening. The people appointed to these positions are members of our local congregation who have the call of God on their lives for these ministries. They are giving of themselves and are not receiving the large salaries of those in the past. Their payment will be the salvation of our children and youth. The Pastor recognizes we have qualified, spirit filled people among our own who can take these leadership roles solely for the purpose of growing the Kingdom.

When did KW take a cut in pay? Its great that the congregation is working for the Lord. But it's the pastor's setting themselves up with 100,000.00 dollar salaries that are a problem. They make it look like a wonderful career! Its not a job or a career! Its being called of God! Thats why there are so many problems in our churches!....

Not to be totally callous, but do you really think the only reason folks from the congregation have been placed in these positions is for the reasons you listed? Seriously, is it not even possible to consider that, for a church like the Family Worship Center to use members of the congregation as part-time pastors it might-to a large extent-involve the fact that these individuals won't be paid pastor's salaries or have health insurance?
