Is the church still open? Are parents still allowing their children on the bus? Some will continue just to get a day off but others will not ever return to that chaos.

Desiree if that were true you know for a fact that he wouldve been in jail last year when you claim that happened.

The fact of the matter is that many people saw these photos and had and possibly still have them on their phones. The fact that they exist at all is enough for any pastor to step down.No godly man goes around posing naked and then keeps the photos around for someone to "find". Desi is not the problem here. It is a group of people who refuse to accept the truth and did not have the spiritual discernment and Holy Spirit indwelling to see a problem and deal with it rightly. A Pastor has a very high standard to live up to according to God's Word. There are so many accusations at this point that picking on Desi is rather ridiculous. A once thriving ministry has been torn down by an ungodly man who lost his way. We must beg God to intervene and salvage what is left. Keep your eyes on the Lord and ask for help from godly men who can guide the rest of the congregation and bring in a new Pastor .This should have been done when he resigned. We have a longsuffering God but He will not be mocked. The question is, will FBC continue to deny the truth and be destroyed or will they humble themselves and seek the Lord's face and forgiveness and restoration. I pray that it is the latter!

Hey dumb ass you're talking about being smart enough to see past a facade or being brainwashed and blinded to a minor but you're going to defend Mark and attack a kid? Mark is in jail for numerous crimes but you attack a child he took advantage of? You're sad

WOW all I can say is WOW. I don't know the Pastor that you are all talking about. I have sat and read all the post on this thread. I can say I honestly feel sorry for you Dennis. Lets say everything you are posting on here is true then I agree this person deserves to be punished.
But why come on here and post all this slander? Does it fix the wrongs that have been done? Being an outsider looking in I have to wonder why any body of any integrity would come on here and bash someone like you have? Things you have talked about from your point of view have taken place years ago. Don't you think you would be a happier person if you let all the anger and bitterness go?
I have a question for you what if this was one of your family member's that messed up and made poor choices would you want your Mom,Dad,Sister,Brother or Child to be bashed like this in an open forum? I only write you this so you will stop and think about what your doing. I can't speak for everyone else but I can say you sound very foolish.

Something is fishy about her "suicide " as women usually don't hang themselves and women who have such strong ties to their church and God would not commit the ultimate sin.
Just a mom here in Vacaville, no connection to the church...expressing what I consider common sense. Just basic common sense.

It's called connecting the dots. Showing a history of prior bad acts. Recidivism. Shining the Light on The Unrepentant.

Why come on here and speak the truth? Gee...maybe to let the other victims know they are not alone or that this was not an isolated incident. That there's a history of this behavior and maybe to encourage other victims to come forward. Maybe to encourage those with information to come forward. And just maybe, just maybe...get the ones who have been hiding his criminal acts to grow a conscious and some balls and talk to the police.

Or how about...just to provide support to his victims.

What you call foolish - is really advocating for what's right. It's called accountability. It's called asking for justice. It's asking for truth. Don't hide it. Don't discourage others to hide it. Wallow in the truth - it will make you clean and set you free!

Fraud allegations against Vacaville pastor detailed

More details emerged Saturday on the re-arrest of Vacaville Pastor Mark Lewis on allegations that he fraudulently posted $500,000 bail in connection with his alleged involvement in the firebombing of a house where his ex-girlfriend had been staying.

Lewis, 39, was arrested and booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of making a false financial statement, perjury, and attempting to record a false or forged instrument after the District Attorney's Office began investigating the source of funds he used to post bail on Jan. 11, two days after the firebombing incident that led to his initial arrest along with three alleged cohorts.

In a press release Saturday, Vacaville authorities said Lewis used the church property as collateral to fraudulently post the bail by securing the property of Fellowship Baptist Church , 3321 Farrell Road and 6657 Gibson Canyon Road in Vacaville.

"A Deed of Trust for both properties was recorded in Mark Lewis's name with the Solano County Recorder/Assessor's Office in order to secure his bond," the release explained. "This Deed of Trust was changed and a new Deed of Trust was drafted by California Bail Bonds on (Jan. 11), the day Mark Lewis posted bail.

I only write you this so you will stop and think about what your doing. I can't speak for everyone else but I can say you sound very foolish.
First off you shouldn't feel sorry for me, I'm not in jail right now looking at 30 years, Mark is so feel sorry for his victims. Those victims include his family who now have to live with his actions. Just like they always had to face criticism for his actions. Shoot I feel bad for my mom for all the times I was a knucklehead, I know those weren't proud moments for her but I'm man enough not to come in here and lie about my past like that coward did. You should also feel sorry for this girl Desiree on this forum who was exposed to this perverts sick shit, he had been her baptism into organized religion. You should also feel sorry for the people who spent years in that church giving money they didn't have because this scam artist CONSISTENTLY preached about giving money, even if you didn't have it. And after all of it he uses the money to buy a bigger house and in the end to bail himself out of jail. Feel bad for Joanna, who was abused, that's not slander that's a fact. A fact I saw with my own eyes. So am I foolish to think he would do it again? Maybe you're foolish to think he wouldn't, ESPECIALLY when he is doing drugs and fornicating with people in the church and minors. See you're also foolish to think I even remotely bashed the man, I haven't posted a fraction of the horrible shit I know about him. I kept it focused to the subject at hand. I could have written a book about what I know about Mark that covers dozens of topics but I was nice and narrowed it down to facts that I witnessed myself. That's not slander, slander is if I was writing about things I heard, I didn't do that. And I assure you I am a happy person, I woke up this morning and thought to myself, I'm happy lol. Also I know you are one of the family members you were referring to which is why you singled me out. Instead of focusing on me speaking the truth you should be focusing on maybe visiting and helping the church your son, brother, uncle, etc just destroyed. Just a thought.
