Well, all I can say is that I have been a member of CHC since 2000 and this has been one of the worst things I have been through in my short life as a Christian. This type of thing just brings so much confusion and bitterness throughout the body of Christ. So many rumors going around even after the meeting that still no one knows what to believe.

I have sat back and watched as member after member leaves along with numerous staff and still am just as confused as when he left. I don't have any way to talk to him to even get a feeling on whether or not he was at fault as much as was portrayed. So everything just feels open ended still with no closure.

I listen to people say just follow God and listen to God, but I don't even know what actually happened except what one side keeps pushing and then the other side shoots back with another story. I don't agree that pastors should be making $250,000 period, but it has become about becoming a church superstar now more than just serving the sheep. However, I just want to know the truth so I can move on from this and make a decision for myself and not just have to cut through all the rumors left and right.

The only reason I'm still standing firm in staying at CHC is because unless God tells me to leave, I won't. Please just pray for me everyone as I am just so frustrated with this situation and want clarity somehow.

Sorry folks, I just needed to vent since I have been holding it in so long.

Ledford takes money from the church-who cares? Ledford broke a legal contract-who cares?
Ledford started a church in anger & rebelion, something he said he would never do-who cares?
Ledford has split a church-who cares?
Ledford made Shelley sign a no preaching agreement, now he won't abide by one he signed-who cares?
You should be appalled at that, not those who question him.

IT OKAY THAT PASTOR LEDFORD LEFT THE CHURCH. FOR WHAT EVER REASON HE LEFT IS BETWEEN HIM AND GOD. SOMETIMES WE DO THINGS OUT OF ORDER AND FOR US TO PUT PASTOR LEDFORD OUT THERE LIKE THAT IS NOT GODLY. YOU KNOW IN YOUR HEART THERE IS NO ROOM TO JUDGE WHAT YOUR BROTHER MAN HAVE DONE. I DONT KNOW WHY HE LEFT BUT HE IS GONE. MAYBE ON TO BIGGER AND BETTER OR MAYBE NOT.

Previous comment stated that Ledford had done this before, and wrote CCC 45013. This is the zip code for his previous church I think. There is nothing there. Please back up your claim, or make it plain for all to see. Don't hint or speculate.

Only God knows the plans HE has for us. His ways are higher than our ways, and our limited mind will never fully understand everything that God does. But one thing is for sure, God is in control, and He works out everything out for our good when we love God. And Pastor Richard Ledford loves God. Thats all that matters. Live your life, work out your own salvation, and leave the man alone. Because every idle word that you are speaking God is taking into account and you will have to answer to everything, including these forums.

In Christ,

Hi Sick of this, Im sorry that you're still hurting. But you need make the decision to forgive all the people that seem to be involved in what we do not know what happened. God knows, and He is and will be the judge of all of this. Please dont let this stop you from going after Jesus with your whole heart. No matter where you are. I went through a period where i was so confused and I wanted answers, but then God spoke to me because I sought Him for answers. I chose to not listen to what she said, he said, but instead I sought God and he gave me peace about it all. I did not stay at CHC not because of what others said, but because that is what I felt God wanted me to go. I struggled with forgiving some of my brothers and sisters, but funny thing about forgiving, its that its not a feeling, its a decision, like love. Every time someone or something comes into your ears or heart, speak out in faith, I have forgiven them. I let it go. And believe me, God will do the rest. I pray you find peace in God, direction, and forgiveness, and love even those that may have hurt you. Were all sick and need healing, weather we've been christian for a week or for 50 years. But his grace. With love,-Melba

Ledorf said he liked to make Christians, bit he didn't like growing them. He robbed Christian Heritage blind. He took from the offerings and bought cars with cash. He all but destroyed the church I grew up in, and showed no respect for the traditions and people of that church. When he was approached after one service a member of his staff heard him say "Jesus H. Christ! Now THESE people are gonna wanna talk to me". I've been away from Tallahassee for a long time and just found this out when my parents came back from the 100 year anniversary of that church. It literally makes me sick to my stomach to hear what he did to the church I grew up in, and to hear people say that he's a man of God. He's a megalomaniac and a crook.

You're misinformed. That church had no pentagrams or any other satanic symbols. He didn't resign, he was fired for stealing from the church. Before you ask, I've known this church for thirty years. I am the son of a former faculty member. I get informed all the time about what's going on and it made me sick.
