Yes he told the whole church in LA that the first wife was gay. If so why did she turn gay? Was it after all of his infidelities that drove her to that point? Terrie knows about all the many women that Derek has been with from coast to coast and still covers for his dirty doings and try to have people thinking that the women are after him. She disgusts me because she so stupid to have a husband she'll do anything to keep him.

Gabriele,
I am really sorry to hear your story. I hope that one day there can be some kind of restitution for you as well as others. I like it when someone who knows him from Detroit writes because we have a different take on all of his deeds. We knew the good things about his church and the bad things. I don't think people understand that Derek started out using his gift from God to help people. He comes from a family that has a excellent history in the church. I see it as a great lose spiritually. This is a true example of how God can give a person gifts and they turn it all over to Satan. I guess we can look at the big name preachers who were probably just as anointed and became full of themselves and forgot about who is in control. I see his mother from time to time and I know she is embarrassed. It's so unbelievable and he still tries to represent God by preaching and starting new churches. I really believe his mind has snapped. He was going around telling people that his first wife from Detroit is gay. What do you think about that.
I agree with you, sweetie, wholeheartedly; and you're right, his family does have an excellent history in the church "from what I could see". I can't believe you actually saw his mother. When did you see her and where? I haven't seen her since I left the last church location he was preaching at, which was back around 1994. How can you tell his mother is embarrassed? She never appeared that way to me; she acted as if no matter what her son did, it was okay with her. I didn't know he was going around telling people his first wife was gay? He never mentioned anything like that around me. Derek Rimson stole thousand of dollars from me, and I spent countless hours doing work for the church, and he never paid me one thin dime. I feel bad sometimes when I think about when he put that church member out of the church, the one I spoke about in an earlier e-mail, Mary. Not only was it winter time, but it was very cold outside and he made her leave. I have not seen her from that day until now, however, I have a feeling that Mary has been blessed out of her socks since she left his church that night. She never returned. I'll e-mail you again you. Stay blessed.

Have any of you been a victim by Derek Rimson and his lies? He's a piece of work and stupid Terrie covers for him. Next thing you know he will be putting whorish Maria out of her own church and running it himself.

Gabriele, Derek's mother is a member of Karen Clark Sheard's husband's Church (Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of God in Christ in Detroit. I'm assuming that his mother doesn't agree with what he's been doing. Yes, I read it on this forum that he was telling people in California that his first wife from Detroit was gay. I don't believe anything he says. He was putting people out od his church here, misusing his congregation's money and the whole nine yards. I really hope thta you get some form of repayment back. I think I remember you from Schoolcraft and Mansfield. Tell you a quick story. The very first service I visited at his church he called people up to the front of the church and when he laid hands on my head for some reason I strated shaking my head from side to side as if to try to shake his hands off my head. I didn't know why I did that then and have thought about that incident from time to time but now I know why his spirit wasn't right and maybe the Holy Ghost was letting me know to shake his hands off of me.

I'm in California I was a member of his church and the first time he laid hands on me my forehead started to burn like it was on fire. I guess that was a sign of him being the devil. He would beg for money and talk about what he has, where he lives, and that the first wife was dike. I saw a picture of her and she is every bit of gay. Terrie would sit in the pulpit with flip flops on after she got tired of her shoes hurting her feet, chew gum, text, and talk on the phone while church was in session. I guess Derek thought that he was going to come to LA and pull the same things he has done all his life but it didn't happen. Some people was on to him from day one and the ones that he talked about so much short stopped him dead in his tracks. I just wish they would have stopped him before he stole all that money and caused us to loose a church that had been in the C.O.G.I.C. for over 40 plus years. Well he sure made a name for himself out here.

bishop charles edward blake enabled derek anothy rimsom to steal the church money and the propetities. bishop blake knew from day one that derek is a crook.. he knew of derek pass in detroit; he owed marie gardner a favor and when derek got into trouble in detriot he ran to los angeles, ca thinking that he would clean house and get away with it without anyone exposing him. well he founded out that Liberty had one little Evangelist Chris Johnson who saw him for what and is from day one and immediately began to expose him and he hated her guts but that matter little to her she wasn't afraid of him and she told him off and that just made him have a hissy fit right in front of all the people on the parking lot one sunday after church he just finished preaching and tried to force her into his office.. that did not happen... he found out that she had all of the legal document (court) that she needed to cause him much trouble and she did without fear... every thing that she said about this clown proved to be true and much more... She told Bishop Blake in a meeting at the church that he knew derek were a thief if he stole 3. six millions dollars from the church property why would you allow him to keep the keys to the church after you told him before the church members to leave the church.. that little lady is bold.. so, yea, derek knew that he could not put no fear in her and he hated that cause he controlled everything and every body around him.. but the Evangelist he could not touchh.

where ever he is i guarantee you he is still having nightmares about that little evangelist.. the bold woman of God who stood alone and declared him a crook both on her tv show and radio show and he nor blake could do nothing about it...... we need more bold people in the church that will call it what it is instead of going alone to get alone sin..... in the camp a social club hell bound.

I can't believe Rimson made this statement to this church in LA about his first wife. Why was it even necessary for him to make such a statement? What did that have to do with anything in church? Well, I'll state one thing, you are absolutely correct in the last statement of your e-mail about his wife. She wants to believe what she wants to believe because she can't and won't face the truth about him. She is one of those people who believes that everything and anything that happens with him is always "the other person's fault."

Of course; I have definitely been a victim of Rimson and his lies. Rimson and a church member stole and owe me a considerable amount of money to this day. Money that I loaned him and a charge card I got for this member, but was never paid back. Early on, at some point, I know I saw "red" flags, but ignored them. I fell for the con, hook, line and sinker and had to endure some very painful lessons.

I can't believe he made such a statement to a church congregation about his first wife; how tacky. You know, I was thinking he'll probably never, ever return to Detroit to preach. I just don't think he's ever going to return. I would be absoultely terrified in my spirit if I was out in the world, representing the Lord and thinking that everything I did and said was perfectly OK. I'm trying to remember Schoolcraft and Mansfield; I'm sure I was there. Thanks for telling me the story of him laying hands on you, and I am certain of the reason you felt the way you did. Stay strong.

Lisa, you wrote he would beg for money; in what ways? I'm just curious. You wrote he talked about what he has and where he lives. What did he say he had and where he lived. Did he obtain a lot of material possessions after he arrived at that church? Is he living in some kind of big house now? Are you serious about his wife chewing gum, texting and talking on the phone while church was in session??? What pastor's wife do you know that does that? UNBELIEVABLE. Well, if you ask me, I think he did arrive in LA and do exactly some of the same things he did here in Detroit, especially the part about the money. How sad about the loss of that church. You wrote he has made a name for himself out there. Tell me about that. Who was he talking about so much in the church? Let me hear from you.

So that's how Rimson's move from Detroit to LA came about. Bishop Blake owed Rimson's mother-in-law a favor. Did he really have a fit right in front of people on the church parking lot after service was over? Wow. Please tell me what he did with all that money he got his hands on? Was it really that much? How could Bishop Blake sit back and allow this to happen to this church? I just don't get it. WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THAT MONEY? I agree with you, Truth, we do need more "bold" people in the church today. That's sad, though, that she had to stand alone. If other people in the church knew what was going on, why didn't someone else say something? I wrote to another individual that Rimson will never, ever return to Detroit to preach.

I was at his church on a bible study night when his other woman came up there. She played voice messages that Derek left for her. I was floored, then he went to his office and she followed. All I heard was the other woman going off on Derek then her friend came busting up in there like she was the police tag teaming. Of course Derek and Terrie lied about what went on behind the closed door. I then heard from a reliable source that Terrie was begging, pleading, and apologizing, and kissing the womans butt trying to justify Derek lies he told Derek was quietly sitting at his desk with nothing to say. What's wrong with this picture. That's what her mom did turn the other cheek to the truth that's in your face.

He would always talk about offerings and tithes paying. He had members giving him monies for the pews when he never paid for them he was renting them. When Blake put him out of the church he asked if he could keep the keys because he had a funeral service that Saturday. Why did Blake do that. Derek and his crew stole everything out of the church tv's, computers, furniture, organ, and etc. All of which he was leasing that wasn't paid for. How could someone borrow monies on the church properties lease things and think that they have to right o take it. Yes as soon as he took over the church he began to splurge and spend. Always talked about his cars, clothes, and house. Which we later found out that he had nothing was leasing all the cars and rent a house. He lost all cars and have been evicted from many places. I have never seen a first lady sit in the pulpit with the pastor but that was so she can see all woman coming in that he might have interest in. He's now in PA I believe living with his dirty mother in law. Derek is not known by the Rimson name he is known for the dirty, lying, cheating, crook that he is that came to LA got the church in debt and lost a legacy church. I hope that he goes to jail for what he has done and for hurting the people the way he has done.

Don't be surprised to see Derek in Detroit preaching. I don't know how he could live with himself and think that it's okay to rob and steal from the church people and live off of the tithes, offerings, and other peoples money. Some people say the Derek and Blake might have been lovers I don't know how true that was and that he was a gambler and dealing drugs. I guess we'll all know some day.

I wonder if Naomi Wren and Waykeya Abbott followed them to PA? They are Derek's flunkies and loyal followers and couldn't possibly have a life of there own to follow them from coast to coast and church to church. That's how the operation rob you blind work because he gives them a position in the church.

You have got to be kidding me. I know Naomi Wren; the first time I ever met her was at Rimson's church. When I became a member of Rimson's church back in the early 90s in Detroit, that's when I came to know her. I don't know who Abbott is. I have never heard of this person. However, you are absolutely 150% correct about Naomi Wren. She has always been the way she is around Rimson and his wife. I know that I know these people don't have a life of their own. How sad. That means that Naomi Wren has been following him and his wife even after I left his church which was several years ago. What could they possibly be getting out of following someone like him around all over to different cities and states. These people gave up their lives for this??? Flunky and loyal follower, you have just described at least one of these people for sure, Naomi Wren. I wonder what her family thinks about her life on the move.

Years ago when Rimson got put out of his church and banded from preaching at any C.O.G.I.C he told lies that they put him out for various reasons but not the truth. The real reason is that he borrowed money on both building and blew it all. The church was in debt and mortgage over 6mos behind he was losing the church and didn't say anything to nobody about it. Before that he was trying to secretly sale the church from up under the C.O.G.I.C. and on the way out trying to get a loan for $255.000. I guess that was his salary that he thought he deserved so he was going to take the money and run and start up a new church. Oh and I heard that it was a sex audio tape that was in Blakes hands that was of Rimson and his other woman that he tried to lie about and say that he never had any relations with this woman until they busted him out and he had egg on his face. After that he and his dumb wife went to Blakes office and she was trying to help save his behind. I don't know if one should call that a loyal wife or a stupid one. He was like the little engine that could but couldn't. He was in Cali until relocating to PA and never recovered from all the dirt that he's done. I heard he had a hand full of members so he probably took the tithes and offering one last time and bailed on them. What a tangled web you heard the saying you reap what you sow.
