I saw a YouTube video of a preacher in your town throwing a hissy fit in the pulpit. Anyone from Immanuel Baptist on here who was there that day? Is that normal behavior from the reverend? How does he get away with such bullying behavior? Are there not any men in the church?

I wasn't there and I don't go there, but Mr. Standridge has built that church into what it is today. He has a huge gathering. If you knew the history of Skiatook and churches you would understand his comments about a "Church Fight"... There are many small po-dunk churches in this town, with sometimes as little as 3 followers. It wasn't always like that but "Church Fights" are far from uncommon here. I guess he could be more like the new style churches, with concerts, indoor skate parks, and pool parties. The new style churches will do just about anything to obtain followers these days... I was pretty surprised Underwood didn't put him on his back though... Anyway some love that church and some don't, I have heard other stories of him trying to intimidate people from leaving. Also harrassing people who left the church. But it is mostly hear say probably...

He could just be defending himself. I know alot of people in this town and I can tell you where the most dramatic, backstabbing, and two faced people can be found on Sunday morning... Hint: It's not in bed.

Research his history... Lazbuddie Baptist in texas.
This would be called a Po-dunk church. Small loving
people was destroyed by this man 30 years ago.

I grew up there in the '60s and 70s, and Immanuel Baptist was by far the largest church in town way back then. Paul Mitts was the Pastor.

That church may have grown under Mr. Standridge but it already had a good start. He didn't build soething out of nothing.

Also, I've been led to understand that the new sanctuary and the other capital improvements are the result of generous donations from a wealthy member.

I just remember going there with friends when I was a kid in the early 90's. It was in that yellow metal building. There weren't near as many people there then, as there are now. I don't know the numbers, I just know what it looks like to some. I didn't mean to offend anyone or discredit any other preacher that preached there in the past. The sizable donation makes a lot of sense. I know my wife and I moved back to Skiatook after being gone for almost 10 years and I couldn't believe and have always wondered how the Church grew so much that they were building a neighborhood of their own.
