Yes County and City Government wheeling, dealings some are involved, from which some say is coming the destruction of several Churches, much of Marshall County and the City of Lewisburg!

Facts to back the truth wrote:
The three elders who wanted to keep John Tracy were David Jent, Glen Hardison, and Jim Bingham. The three who wanted him to resign were Lee Morrison, Wayne Cozart, and Don Ledford. The change happened when Jim Bingham resigned from the Eldership and left Church Street for another church in Columbia. Upon leaving, he apologized for the acts of Eldership he had been a part of. The women did NOT have a vote in this. For those of you who don't know, ALL decisions are made by the Eldership. The congregation does NOT vote on anything. Many, many individuals in the church did NOT want John Tracy to leave and supported him to stay as preacher. There is still no reason John Tracy cannot be the preacher at Church Street. This has been confirmed by James Watkins, a man held in high esteem by many in the faith. If you don't believe me, google James Watkins. He is the preacher on the TV program Preaching the Gospel. Other men have continued their preaching careers after their wives left. The first person who comes to mind is Tom Holland. He has been divorced for over 20 years and leads the Diana singing twice a year and preaches at many gospel meetings throughout the year.
John Tracy did NOT deceive the Eldership at Church Street. He was honest with them and the person who said his wife had had an affair was THE WIFE HERSELF!!! Yes, the wife told the Elders that John had a reason for a scriptual divorce because she had been with another man. After they questioned her again, she changed her story and said she hadn't. NONE of that ever came from John Tracy. He signed the divorce papers without hassle because he did not want to put Church Street through a public divorce in the community. Many if not all of the Elders were told by numerous individuals that they wanted John to stay and be the minister at Church Street. A meeting was held one Sunday night before the evening worship and all were invited to attend. John Tracy's daughter was at this meeting and told the Elders how they had ruined her father's life and that he would never be the same. She gave example after example of how he was NOT at fault in the divorce. Whether he was at fault or not, it is not a sin to be divorced. It does not keep a preacher from continuing his ministry. Had he wanted to marry again, the whole subject matter would be different. This man has lost the profession that he had given his life to. He will end up losing his house and has to now find employment in a different sector. What I don't understand is why people are bashing John? The ones who need to be looked at are the Elders of this congregation who are sowing discord among all their members. Don Ledford wanted John Tracy gone. It was not a secret at Church St. He was emphatic about it and pushed the issue until he got his way. While no church is perfect, Church Street is one that needs to look within and see where they can start anew. They have lost their youth director to another congregation. The preacher is now gone and the poor family minister cannot keep going at his current pace or he will drop dead of a heart attack. As for the person who said they sat in the back of the church because of all the town crooks, you are exactly right and hit the nail on the head.Before anyone goes and says I am bashing Church Street without knowing the whole story, I have talked to multiple Elders, John Tracy, James Watkins, and many of the members to understand what is taking place.
I think Don Ledford and Joe Boyd Liggett owe this preacher and their congregation an apology. They should also step down from being elders and deacons in the church. They both have a lot of work to do on their own souls before they judge anyone else.I also think Don Ledford should publicly apologize to the one he called white trash. He and Joe Boyd Liggett should then go to church, keep their mouths shut and learn.

Won't be happening. These two think that they have all the power and have done nothing wrong. I've about to agree with the power. Just don't get in their way.

Once was member at Church Street. All the faithful elders quit or died off. Now have likes of Ledford, Glen Hardison, David Jent, Bingham, and Morrison as Elders. Bible requires that Elder have believing children and family under control. One has daughter that has broken up families, one has school teacher wife that is "she Elder" and knows more about church business than banker husband, and others are more interested in prestige than shepherding the souls of members. They should be run out of town for encouraging illegals to stay in country by establishing Church just for illegals.

Thanks for making me aware that there is a church in town "just for illegals". I was under the impression that Hispanic services were for legals too.

I wonder if Don Ledford and Joe Boyd Liggett went to church today. Do you think they held their heads up. Someone needs to tell them we are telling on them on this site. If they think everyone is dumb enough to keep silent they are wrong. They ticked me off when they called someone I care about white trash. God still loves them but I still want an apology. Everyone needs to boycott Ledford Employee Exchange, talk to the members of Church Street Church of Christ about the elders and deacons actions, and investigate Don Ledford and Joe Boyd Liggetts connections to possible corruption. Just my opinion.

this is not an opinion. Your statements are accusations and calls to action. If If you are taking this course, don't attempt to CYA with"this is my opinion". You either know the facts or you do not. If you state corruption, name your source and evidence and turn it in to local authorities. If you cannot, tone down your accusations and ask questions.

I want to know what Liggett and Ledford are going to do for county residents when the landfill closes the first of the year? They have pushed and pushed to get it closed. I sure hope the community makes them take the hit for what they have done and what is going to happen. The broke county cannot afford to pick up garbage and for sure cannot afford to fund the conveinent centers. What if Waste Management shuts the centers down the week of Christmas, what will these two great county leaders do? If you live in the county please ask these two officals what is their plan for garbage disposal for county residents. Liggett will try to blame it on the city and Ledford will tell you how bad the lanfill is, but neither have a plan.

Do you really think they care? They got their way and that is all that matters to them. Liggett got paid by the guy in Cornersville and he took care of this for him. They could care less about this mess.

Excuse me. I dont think the local authorities care one way or the other that Don Ledford is going around calling someone white trash. I also dont think the authorities care about the corruption in the church. I say corruption because if those two ganged up against that preacher then that in my opinion is corruption. As far as facts I pretty well think every one at the church knows the facts especially since they wanted the preacher to stay
