You must be one of Rons minions.

He put her on blast for the entire world to hear. But he has a habit of doing that to his family members, doesn't he?

I have no idea, really. I don't know them. My question to you is..why is this your business? Are you related? Do you think you're causing trouble for the hubby or Hope? Because you are embarrassing the girl you think you're protecting.

Now you mention some guy named Ron??? What kind of coward posts others people's business in a gossip forum??? You. You're that coward.

Where is Hope? Ron is the one who out to be locked away for a year. but he couldn't bear to put down that microphone and live without the attention. He is the worst kind of pastor. He fancies himself to be an apostle but he should be ashamed of himself.

Transparency and honesty on the part of a pastor are absolutely critical; however, that doesn’t mean every piece of dirty laundry needs to be aired in front of a YouTube audience. It certainly doesn’t give a pastor the right to humiliate his wife or children without offering them an opportunity to explain themselves.
And whose reputation is being protected? Certainly not Hope Hilley Carpenter, who is either incapable or is being prevented from speaking for herself. When church becomes empire-driven, then some things must be sacrificed in order to protect the empire. That can end up being the most vulnerable person available–which, in this case, appears to be the wife. I really don’t even want to think about what’s happening to the children, other than to pray for their well-being in this mess.

It's now December and no word from her or about her yet. Pastor Rom Is full speed ahead I've noticed starting a ministry education division at RWOC, book promotion Christmas and New Years celebrations etc... In his most recent service on line he mentions all of these as well as his vision to have this church go "nationwide" and that ONLY the graduates of his program will be elligable to open a sister church as they have been educated on the ways of RWOC. Sounding cultish much??? Is he a great speaker? Yes. Have I listened to his sermons? Yes. But I also must say I had a family member that was so. Very close to Hope both before her marriage to Pastor Ron and after. If he were still alive he would be asking for answers. When I saw Hope and Ron at his funeral (held at the home church) I couldn't help but to notice how odd their interaction was with each other as well as noticing that their appearance was such that no one would have guessed either to be "apostles" or pastors. If efforts are being made to find her or just to prove her well being I sincerely hope updates are given because I do believe there is way more to this story.

There are always always always two sides to every story and when she comes out of wherever it is he sent her or she got smart and just left him, I bet we'll all see whose the better person.. Hope!! Because I believe she won't utter one bad word about him or the ministry because I've known her for years and she has never been critical of a soul.. Even those who have blatantly stabbed her in the back! She's a good woman who has OBVIOUSLY held in plenty of hurt and pain and couldn't hold it anymore!

The reason he did that was purly revenge. He wanted to cut her head off in their world. He is immature.
That should never have been put on the public chopping block by a pastor. He needs to take the blond out of his hair learn how to dress and let a real man take over.

That tells me that if I were his friend he would not stop at putting me down if it came between me and his ego. He is not to be trusted. He used his congregation to get back at her instead of forgiving her or at least being mature enough to let things be as Gods will without putting himself on blast for everyone to see. I do not like this guy.

@ Denise: no one said what she's accused of would be wrong if indeed that's what happened. What the question at hand is where is she. Is she ok. Why would she have the man she "wronged" be her voice and why a year? This woman had children and grandchildren... No matter what she did it doesn't make sense it abandon them all for a year long retreat and recovery. Your pastor is a great speaker no doubt but NO man is perfect. Period.

there is ZERO proof that Hope was cheating or doing anything wrong. Zero. People do not get sent away to mental and drug rehab facilities for a year for "cheating". That does NOT happen. Ron has pulled the wool over everyone's eyes

I would bet my year's salary the entire church is being scammed. how much money has been donated since she went missing? where is the outpouring of support for a woman in need? She has been ABANDONDED by EVERYONE (if she is even gone).

Why did Hope not stand before the church and admit her "sins"? Where is forgiveness? Why is Hope not allowed to speak to anyone? Why are there ZERO updates?

I feel sorry for people who are falling for this. This is how Jim Jones got away with what he did.

I go to the church and I still smell a rat. Hope and I spent time together. She is unapologetically honest and not afraid to be herself. If any of what was said about her was true- she would have no problem owning it. I know from experience that the image of the ministry overshadows every thing and every one else. No updates in the wife who "no expense would be spared" for? Reconciliation (to her family or ministry) not on the table/ hardened heart for the "Bible is final authority" pastor? I have even heard other, former friends of hers follow the pastor in labeling her as the "enemy." He made a subtle allusion to his book during the confession. All I can say is pray.
