I agree. What a "show" - the only thing missing was the clown show.

If you are not careful you may end up with another Mike Everson. With CJ and Morris on the search committee. They will try to come up with the same type of man. This would be the last straw for PMBC. PMBC is not thought of very well in the county or maybe the state. Tell them you need a Godly man that will be there to preach the word and be out for every dime he can drain out of the church. Does anyone wonder how Mike and Chad both have $500,000 homes. Preaching for these two has been one big payoff. PS: Why are both selling out? God bless all at PMBC

I liked that comment,the truth shall set them free someday.Let them continue to drink the Kool-Aid,as they are still all brainwahed by criminals,and still hand over money for them to live high on the hog.

I think they miss Mike and have the Kool Aid blues. Do not forget Mike left the church with a gift and a prize to Church and gave the youth pastor a total compensation package of almost $100k at this church. Nice going away present for the church. Stick it to em Pastors everywhere. If these members are dumb enough to pay, then get all you can get.

Why should Elton John and Madonna make millions for producing worthless garbage but pastors , that preach the truth and save lives are slammed for making $400,000. I have never attended this church and don't know this pastor but I pray he is blessed .

Because of what the bible specifically says concerning real pastors and offerings. Need I say more. According to what I read in the bible, Jesus never built a church for "wealth" and "income/retirement benefits" like they do now.

I have been a member since 1997. The Church has grown tremendously since then. It was nice when it was small. Now it's so commercial feeling. The Pastor was so much more humble when he was making an average 60K per year. Now, he close to 400K for his personal salary. What amazed me before I left, he only works a couple of days a week making this kind of money.
Is it Right or Wrong for church members who are struggling to make ends meet to pay a pastor close to 400K per year?
I attend the church and the pastor does three services just on Sunday and Saturday and the teaches classes during the week. Maybe it has been a while since you have been there and to the ones who says it is all about money, You have to have money to do the ministries that we do.

When you compare the United States wealth on average with the rest of the world we all live like kings. Where do you draw the line for someone making "to much for a Christian"? Is it 50K 100K 400K What is excessive. Oh ya and I haven't read anyone defending how much he gives away a year as well. Oh wait that wouldn't be a good subject to gossip about now would it.

If he is a true man of God or is a so called "God Called" Pastor - would he leave and start up another church tomorrow and forgo the large compensation package he now receives? If so, let's see.

If Jesus was on earth today, do you really think he would participate in all the money and materilism that Midway worships?

The Book of Luke tells us that Jesus had nothing and did not want to associate with the world as he was not from the world. He was homeless, pennyless, with no possesions. In Jesus's ministry, he operated with a the bare minimum called nothing.

Midway along with most Church's today are worshiping the golden calf and have lost there way.
