Why can't the correct street name be used? It's on Kentucky Road at the intersection of Jennings.

Actually they did use the correct address it's on North Jennings Road not at Kentucky and Jennings! I live a few houses away from this place and have not known anything about any of this! Kind of scarey. They were stopping cars from going down the road last night making sure they didn't have anything to do with the Church as I was on my way to K-Mart. Hope they get this all taken care of I have faith that Jackson County Sheriff's will not stop until all involved are taken care of. Thank you to the Sheriff's that have put forth the effort in this matter. Specially all the Sheriff's that were there last night that I know! You are amazing thanks for protecting me, my family, my neighbors, and my county!

Concerned neighbor and Lindsay, Is he a bad man? I have heard HORRIBLE things about him but found it interesting that people actually posted about it. From the sounds of it Lindsay, God did answer your prayers and I pray that he continues to help you through whatever may have happened to you.

So can anyone tell me why your saying it's about time they caught him? I have lived a few houses down like I said for over 4 years now and have never heard anything about this man or the Church or anything?

That man cost me my relationship with my mother and sisters over the last 17 years. He is a bad man! I am a Chritian, and dared to stand up to him and was quickly "cut off" from contact with the rest of my family, who were members there. He is a serious controller, and leads by fear. All who have been hurt by him should come foward, and I beleive they will!

The police have been after him for years. He has abused weman and child for many years. I know first hand. People that have left the church have been to scared to file charges against him, because of what he might do. He may seem pleasant to your face but if you ever crossed him he would come after you. Let's just hope the charges stick and the truth comes out

I was trapped that church for many years and that evil man ruined countless lives, destroyed families, and struck fear in the heart of anyone near him. His insanity knows no bounds and I hope he rots in jail!!!!!!!!

I'm glad to hear he's in jail. All of those years of physical and emotional abuse almost made me commit suicide. I know im not the only one and im very sorry for the others. He ruined my relationships with my sisters and brother and made me feel like I was worthless. He always talked bad about my father(whom passed away in September of 2007) and told me I was gonna be a failure like him. He deserves to rot in jail for life. He's ruined thousands upon thousands of lives and scarred others like myself. I can never forget what he did to me and how he made me feel. I just pray that justice is served.

This poor excuse for a human has caused many problems for many people, he is abusive and the farthest thing from a pastor, he is insane and i hope he rots. I know alot of people that have had thier lives ruined because of him. He isnt running a church. ITS A CULT!

Abraham, I hope you find a way to make it to this man's trial once he has it!! The more people who stand up to him the more leverage they will have to put and keep him in jail. Anyone who can harm a child the way this man has, needs to be punished. The more things come out about what him and other's whom have helped him, people will have a better understanding of why you are so hurt. My prayers are with you.

I hope these delusional people are that way because they are christians and not because they are from my home state. I love the way monsters are always called nice people who you wouldn't have thought would hurt a fly. Of course both Timothy McVeigh and Jeffery Dahmer's neighbors said the same thing...

Perhaps this incident should cause folks to question the purpose of religion. When the one held up as a moral example turns out to be anything but, and this happens time and again, then perhaps it would be better for all to do without.

These are not Christians!!! These are relgious people who claim their own God, their own rules and have not a single ounce of humanity in them. Just because they are from a church does not make them Christians. I agree with you to the fact that people say "he was a nice church going man. He could never hurt a fly" well go ask the children that he molested and the others whom he has made their lives a living hell. Again, the BTK killer was a deacon at his church, Boyscout leader and a father, his own WIFE had no idea that he was a monster.. Yet, we all still say "he's a lovely person, wouldn't ever hurt anyone".. It's a crying shame.

oinonio... there will always be people like you waiting in the wings to spread your negativity... ever person makes mistakes! I'm not agreeing at all with this man's life, and I hope he pays for everyone of his choices. But you don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. How many people have been helped and healed by churches!!!! I'm sorry so many people suffered at the hand of this man, but evil men don't make all 'religion' bad! Hopefully now these people will get to experience what a real church, with a good man as pastor is like!

To Brad Hart.

When you are born into something you have no choise until you come of the age to try to do something about it. Sometime you lose a lot in the process, like family and friends. It is not about just religion and being a Christian, it is having the truth come out about someone that has been doing bad things for over thirty years. You have not right to speak if you don't know what goes on. It is very sad when people use Religion as an accuse, but not in this case

Indepmogal, #1, I think Brad was referring to the people in the video, #2, we can't judge the hearts of the congregation, as they appear to be victims of this man.
