Truth, seems to me you are spreading rumors. I would validate that possibility on the chance that Scott or Lana told you that, however, the both of them are professional enough, respectful enough, and good enough Christians not to spread dirty laundry out for all to see. Enjoy the blessing of having the Kilgores in your church. They are wonderful people. Do try to abstain from gossiping about things that are private matters for them and don't drag another church through the mud. I have attended your church in the past and found it a wonderful place but I do attend Living Hope. I will no sooner judge your house of worship or the fine people who attend there than I would have you judge mine or it's people and pastors. Let's all do as Jesus would and drop it and celebrate Scott's continued service to the lord bad not sully anyone's name. We all have the same goal so let the past be the past. Scott and Lana have.

I don't think truth was putting any church "in the mud".. An you mentioned first that truth was "spreading rumors".. But then you "validate" that someone told truth?? I don't understand..

All of this has nothing to do with Scott but everything to do with his wife. Scott is a saint to take all of this. His wife was working with a client in a divorce action. Scott had the other partner in counciling at the Church. The husband and wife discussed the case, of course Scott considered this private information and he felt he could talk as a husband and wife.

Lana used this information during the divorce proceedings. Her client made out extremely well due to this information. Secretes are so, so dangerous.

Some of the Church leaders got access to this information and Scott was told to voluntary resign or be terminated. He chose to leave.

He protected his wife and family, Lana has really caused her family pain.

I asked the main minister to give this information to the Church, but he did not. If he chose to cover this up, how much more has he hidden.

I think the deacons and church should get this information in detail Covering up information from the congreation will only weaken the foundation of the Church

I believe Scott Kilgore was judged wrongly, his wife is responsible, Conversations between husband and wife should occur in a comfortable setting and trust should be assumed in a marriage relationship.

I think Scott Kilgore was judged wrongly and he should be asked to come back.

Your Church belongs to YOU and GOD and using secretes to cover up a wrong doing will only bring the wall falling down and the foundation is ost forever. Scott should be asked to come back and the congreation should be informed of the details and they should have a say so in this. Extend your hand and friendship to him and put the blame where it is.

The major pastoral members should discuss this and then give it to everyone. Look at what secrets do
the truth will set you free. That is the only approach to take Bless6056

After reading comments after i left one let's me know most members of living hOpe do not have a clue what happened/
I Have asked the main minister to talk with his congregation to see what they want to do. IT is never too late. Why he will not communicate this i do not know. Every minister learns sooner or later that the Church belongs to the PEOPlE. they should be given the truth by their main minister and a committee should be formed to follow this incident
and correct it.
Because his wife Lana seriously violated all matter of ethics (FOR attorneys). this should go to the Kentucky Bar Association for them to evaluate. HE has totally carried all responsibility
and judgment and punishment for this. IT is a sin of ommision for this Christian congregation not to follow up after they have been informed. Any wrong doing like this should be addressed up front to all members and staff. ONe man should not have the power to destroy one person and in this case especially since a good upright Christian man is involved.
Just think if one item like this is seriously hidden from the congregation it makes one think what else is hidden. We have all seen the seriousness and the distrust that developes after an incident like this The staff will never be trusted again.
This is your Church and God's Church.Someone in a position to do so please respond to this or it will divide the Church and no one wants this. A man cannot be held accountable for what his wife chooses to do with out him knowing and the same is true of a husband. This is like leaving an automobile accident and not helping someone that is hurt and not reporting it. Someone please do the Christian thing that Jesus has asked us to do.
Be the good Samaration, please One of our beloved pastors is hurt go after him and get this story amd help this fellow Christian who has got to hurt everyday because of what his wife did. He needs our support, help him please. At least release the information and let the Church show their love for him and support him, Peace

I agree with Friend of hope, Ive attended many churchs for over 30 years and there is always someone there trying to keep something stirred up to keep the focus off Christ and what he is doing in the lives of people.

Just so u know he is more at fault than his wife he took an oath and there is such a thing as confidentiality. I am a professional that works in the school system. If I counsel a student or parent I have NO RIGHT to discuss any matter with anyone, including my spouse! The only persons that are privy to the information are the ones directly involved- classroom teacher, patent, principal. Breach of confidentiality is punishable by termination and possibly civil suit.
The oath of a preacher in the counseling role is much more stringent than that of an attorney. She did not breach confidentiality, he did. Now does this make it morally right? NO. But do remember we r talking about an attorney.....

It seems there is no joy in Mudville. But there is enough blame for everyone. Glad I'm not a part of it.

Sensitive matters concerning attorneys, the courts, employee indiscretions, etc., are not always made public for the obvious reasons. Church business is based on Biblical principles, this one complicated with legal issues. So, please folks, make no judgements.

Scott Kilgore's position at living hope was eliminated from underneath him. He was offered a different position at the church and said that that offered position wasn't his calling. Pettus got upset because he didn't have a squeaky clean story to tell the church so trouble happened. When Scott resigned he nor his family was allowed to say goodbye to the church. Scott was not allowed to publicly address the congregation...I guess too much of a risk. The congregation asked when we could have a going away/goodbye/see ya party...the elders denied them that opportunity. A week later they changed their minds and allowed it :/
Pettus lied about Scott. Lied to the congregation. the elders lied to the congregation. Scott has been very gracious to the church and hasn't spoken about the situation openly.
The Saturday before the resignation became public, Pettus organized a meeting of EVERY church leader (Sunday school teachers from babies-to high school to senior citizens---elders, deacons, all ministers...EVERYONE) but coincidently Scott Kilgore was NOT invited to this meeting about...SCOTT KILGORE. Why would a church not invite or even TELL the guy who they are having a meeting regarding?! SHADY

RUMOR HAS IT--Pettus was after LANA KILGORE (Scott's wife) because she had an ongoing lawsuit that was negatively impacting a friend of his or something.
Scotts last day at living hope was on Palm Sunday. Why leave the Sunday before Easter?! Obviously not a happy departure from the church.

Pettus formally told the church that Scott reneged on a contract to be the new senior adult pastor. Whatever. Pettus is a liar and will face God for the pain and difficulties that he put on the Kilgore family.

What are you talking about?!
Her job and his have nothing to do with one another. If they were somehow intertwined and he saw that her job/livelihood would be negatively affected...as her husband shouldn't he tell her? If he sees something unethical or shady...even if it is in a religious institution...isn't he mandated to report it?

You are no friend to the Kilgore's.
She doesn't even practice those sort of divorce cases. She only does mutual consent...that's even on her website. Lana's client was suing Breen who was/is good pals with Pettus. Breen even hosted pettus's party when he got his doctorate. Pettus tried to use Scott as leverage to get Lana off the case. Get a life. Stop slandering a family that you claim to love but obviously don't know anything about.

Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns."

You Might as well smite that ugly red white and blue water tower down town with a sink hole too while you're at it.
