What happened to the preacher there at this church. My husband and I recently visited there and he was gone and he was so good.

I heard that he was tired of all the petty things going on there. I had heard that a sermon he gave before he left was about how childish a lot of people there was. They will never be able to keep a good pastor there for any length of time. They want a puppet instead of a good pastor that will preach and teach God's word!

He left because the Minister of Music run 85 people off, including the organist, pianist, himself & a couple of deacons. Only then did the deacons, who were left, fire the Minister of Music. They had an interim pastor for a year, and then voted in a pastor who is perpetuating the downhill slide. He was elected in a public forum, not a secret ballot as it should have been. Many, many of the members do not like him but went along with the vote for fear of being ostracized. He is controversial and has no respect for the church, as he dresses like a farm worker. Most people are of the mind that you do your best on Sunday. They apparently let an incompetent be in charge of the Pastor Search Committee. I heard when the chairman of the committee was telling about the selection, he was acting so thrilled that people thought he was going to have an orgasm. According to several church members another deacon has resigned, and other members are leaving or just not attending. A once thriving church, under the leadership of Tim Tapp, is now down to 80 people on Sunday!

Hunter, you must have Immanual confused with HFBC. Thats what they tell everyone "If you don't like it leave" and about 2/3 of the church has, many more will.
