DEREK ANTHONY RIMSON IS A FALSE TEACHER, PREACHER, OR WHAT-EVER HE GOES BY THESE DAYS. HE STOLE MONEY FROM OUR CHURCH SERVERAL years ago and bought cars, trucks home clothes and jewelry. he had sexual affairs with several women in the church, some even say that he is bi-sexual. I know nothing of that but i have the legal court paper about his other activities...

Bishop charles E blake appointed him to Liberty Church Of God in Christ 53oo South central avenue in Los angeles, ca 90003 our property were paid for in full... derek were there only a half year when he began borrowing money on the properties... he could or would not pay the loan and the church were sold last year sometime.
Bishops needs to seek God before they go around appointing pastors to churches.. The Bible tells us that the Holy Ghost will leads us into all truths. So, appearnyly the Bishop did not seek God regarding this appointment and now is very quite about this matter because he do not want the organization of THE CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST to
be tarnished.. well it is a little late for that considering all of the crooky leader, and sex offenders in this orgnization as well as a few muderer... can't wait until someone else will rise up and cry loud and spare not.. we offered this story to the Los Angeles Sentinel they would not print it.. the Los Angeles Wave would not print it.. they have all been bought out.. they alerted the Bishop regarding the story being asked to print.

LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE FRUAD WOULD NOT FILE THE CASE WITH THE DISTRICT ATTORNE. SO, I GUESSS THE BISHOP HAS A LOT OF PULL IN LOS ANGELES.. THIS YEAR WE WILL ATTEMPT FILING WITH IRS.. AND THE LOS ANGELES DISTRICT ATTORNEY OFFICE AND see what will become of it.. keep watching for the up date.

it is not fair that derek rimson gets away with over 3. 6 millions dollars and counting and nothing happens to him.. that were our money and someone should be held accountable for this theif.

come on let cry loud and spare not join this cause to expose the false preacher of los angeles no matter who they are.......

Please, if you can, send me a picture of Derek Rimson. If this is the same person I think it is, I definitely have a few things to say about this individual, from personal experiences. I am from Michigan, where he and his family used to reside, and my situation definitely includes being terribly ripped off financially by this man. I have never, from day one, received the full amount of the money owed to me by this man. If there is a class-action suit ever filed against this man, I want to be included in the lawsuit

I know you know these people, because you mentioned Pastor Maria Gardner and Tony Gardner. Pastor Maria Gardner came to Detroit on a few occasions at a church I was attending Pastored by Derek Rimson. Her son, Tony Gardner, preached at this same church as well. I cannot, for the life of me, understand how Christians can steal money from people, never make an attempt to pay it back, and SLEEP at night. Thanks Philadelphia for your comment.

What state is he and his family living in now. I say an advertisement linked through Google, that read like he was no longer as part of COGIC. He has a church called Kingdom Dominion Church, International. What is this all about?

It was bad enough the goings-on in Detroit, now I hear of the terrible things that happened in another state. Bishop Blake doesn't have all power, only the Lord. Someone will eventually listen.

Thank you Truth for letting me know what city and state he is in. I actually did see a small video clip of him preaching, so this must have taken place in this store front church that you are referring to. I am going to tell you and Alicia some things that happened to me in Detroit, so make sure you read my reply to her, so that I don't have to type the same things twice.

Hey Alicia. Alicia, I wouldn't know where to begin to tell you my story. It would take me too long to tell you in one e-mail reply. Yes, yes I was a member of Send Judah First Ministries in Detroit, but how were you affliated with this ministry? Were you a member of his church when I was a member there? First the church was called Saintsville Workship Center COGIC, then Rimson changed the name to Greater Saintsville Workship Center COGIC, remember. We moved to so many different buildings just to hold a church service that it became absolutely, positively ridiculous. WE NEVER, EVER HAD A PERMANENT PLACE WHERE WE COULD HOLD WORSHIP SERVICES. We were moving around ALL THE TIME. There were things that happened that left me dumbfounded. I can only speak on some of the things that involved me personally, but what about the things I don't have knowledge of. I remember one time he had actually asked me to co-sign for him for a vehicle. The only thing that I can say to this day is that GOD had to have intervened, but I would not co-sign for him. I get chills just thinking about the nightmare I may have gone through, FINANCIALLY, had I did this one thing. I know the LORD stopped me from doing this. I probably would have filed for bankruptcy had I co-signed for him. However, I think a couple, who were a part of the church at that time, did co-sign for him. If I have my story correct, that couple was on the verge of going after him, physically, because I'm sure he was not able to make the notes on time, and that was going to ruin their credit. I'm not sure was happened, but he no longer was in possession of that vehicle. Everything that happened with him was always centered around the need for money and getting it by any means necessary. I'll reply more about him in another e-mail later. However, it wasn't just him that stole and borrowed money from me, there was a church member who did this as well. Let me tell you about Christian folks, you can talk about unsaved people all you want to, but what I had happen to me was at the hands of Christians, not unsaved people. I have always had excellent credit, and I got a credit card for her under my account. Not only did she abuse the credit card, but she never, ever paid me back the money she ran up on this credit card. Remember now, this credit card was under my account and affected my credit rating. To this day, she owes me about $1,700 in credit charges she put on this credit card when she had it. I am so angry at myself, because I should have taken her to Court and sued her for every dime of this money, and I didn't. What a fool I have been when it has come to helping some Christians. We were having church services one day in a church that we were allowed to use for the evening. A young lady who was a member and had come to the service who had been praying to receive the Holy Ghost, finally did. But, she did not receive the Holy Ghost under Rimson's ministry. Anyway, we were all praying, and she went over to some of the members and started praying with them. Rimson put her out of the Church, and before she left she told him she was going to pray for him. The last words she spoke to me was not to let anything separate me from the love of GOD. Unfortunately, I did. I think he said something about she was out of order, which was why he asked her to leave. I think one of the other members had to take her home, because at that time, she didn't have a vehicle. Alicia, I'll respond later with more. God Bless!

Yes Gabrielle,
I just read your response to my e-mail. He's been bad for a long time. I remember his radio program here in Detroit where he begged for money. I remember him going from building to building. Schoolcraft and Joy Road and other places. The tragedy about it all is that he had people who were saved in his congregation and miracles were happening. Derek defiled it all. I remember bragging on how anointed Derek was and how I had taken a young lady I knew to his church and he laid hands on her and she was delivered from drugs. He could have went down the good road but chose to take the bad road unfortunately. He turned something that God gave him into something bad to be used against God's people. Gabrielle, I was a frequent visitor to his services. It's strange I had a dream about Derek and his church I had never met him or been to his church at the time of my dream. I so happened listen to his radio program and he was inviting listeners to attend his church. I did visit and realized that the dream I had several years before was about him and his church. I would have never thought in a million years that he would turn out to be the person he is.

Alicia, everything you said is so, so true. Since you were a frequent visitor to his services, I know we had to have seen one another many times. Isn't it strange, that's how I came to attend my first visit at his church - LISTENING TO HIM ON THE RADIO. I would often listen to various radio broadcasts as night, and one night, for the first time, I heard Derek Anthony Rimson on the radio. As you stated, he was asking for money, and I did send in a donation, but it was a small donation. Then, before his broadcast would end, he would send out verbal invitations for people to come to his church, and I kept putting it off and putting it off, until one day I finally arrived at the church building for service. The building I arrived at was very small, and there were only a handful of people present, maybe ten. He preached a message that day that caused me to join his church, but I truly believe it was a message purposely preached because someone new (meaning me) had stepped through that building door. Alicia, I cannot begin to tell you the things that took place in my life from the time I joined his ministry until the time I left. I will have to tell you in a series of e-mails, because I could practically write a book.

I remember Derek Rimson stating to me one time that he had "fears." When I asked him what those fears were, he stated to me "he would never tell." Meaning, there are things that have taken place in his life that he will take to his grave, things that happened long before I ever came to know him. In my next e-mail to you, I can tell you and Truth about the financial burden and my financial downfall that happened to me as a result of my lending this man money. Instead of going to Court, seeking some kind of restitution, I let it go, and I am still hating myself to this day for not trying to recover money that was clearly stolen and owed to me from Mr. Rimson. After I left his church, sometime thereafter, it completely disbanded.

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.
