Now I'm hearing Catherine Reece has a drug problem. That sure would explain where the money has been going. Can't say that I blame her if her husband it fucking a young college girl and he dont care if she knows about it, Catherine should take every penny Steve Reece has

I think there is a verse in the bible about a wolf in sheeps clothing, they fit the bill for that! I have attended Shelter Rock, I have even been told that I was a sinner and God would not work miracles in my family's lives until I chose to live like they did. NOW that is just sad! There is alot of crazy things going on there and I believe these things are true. I have seen some of it myself.

It is sad that good people, or people who are hurting and need help and spritual nurishment get taken in by people like Steven Reece. Probably what happened to his little girlfriend at SR. She still gets up and plays guitar and sings with his wife there I think. Sad, just really sad.

I have witnessed many inappropriate actions, behavior and lies told by Steven and Catherine. There are many problems within their private corporation (so called non profit). All the provision given away by them is donated by other large organizations. These goods are totaled up at retail value and then combined with cash received by donors. You are then told that approximately 97.3 percent of what you give is used for the ministry such as helping a poor Appalachian child. When in fact, Most of the money given to SRM is going to support the overworked 5 or 6 employees meager salaries (none over $30k yr), television air time, $3000 month rent for their ministry building ( not $1. per mo as previously told by the Reese's), Steven Reese and Catherine Reese $70,000 salary EACH (140,000) plus additionally their home ($2300. mo) is paid for by the ministry as well as both their trucks, gas, food, auto insurance second home, second office. Also they each get a 24,000 expense account. Not bad for hardly ever showing up for work and getting approximately $235,000 total compensation a year (rough guesstimate). The staff gets by with obsolete and damaged equipment while the Reese's only have the finest in work and personal life. Go to SRM during the week and you will most likely not find them there. How can they be there much when they live in Charleston, SC. Try calling SRM and getting straight answers about anything, You will get the runaround. They are last to show up for the day of blessing events and first to leave. They dine, travel, vacation and live in high class style on the monthly $30. from thousands of people hoping for a better life for the Appalachian people and the message of Christ, s love to be sent to them believing all the while you are sponsoring a child with the money you send to SHELTER ROCK MINISTRIES. The ONE child you AND OTHERS are sponsoring, probably has not been seen or heard from in a year or even 3 years. Meanwhile in the past couple years many employees have left the private corporation with no accountability called SHELTER ROCK MINISTRIES for various reasons that are despicable and are heartbreaking for those who have found out the truth about SRM. Steven and Catherine Reese are living a lie not the Word. The board members know nothing of what really goes on at SHELTER ROCK MINISTRIES. The SECRETS are deep and blatantly sinful. The board has very little input, no power to be useful and certainly is not in any position to hold SRM accountable. They know nothing of the waste of money for the Reese's lavish lifestyle, the lies told to people and printed in their newsletter material about the number of people served by them and number of people saved at events, or the small amount of time the Reese's spend working in the ministry, why some employees left SRM because of an affair that was swept under the rug which involved Steven Reese and another woman (Megan) that still works at SRM, the near 2009 eviction from the building in Boone, NC for being over a year and a half behind on rent, The judgment in 2010 for $100, 000 against SHELTER ROCK MINISTRIES for work done to the building the ministry is in, another judgment for unpaid bills just to name a few.

CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUSPOST------ The Reese's claimed to have sold their business to go be missionaries in the Appalachian mountains. The fact is in 1998 they bought a house in Boone NC. In 1999 they lost their house in Winston Salem NC to foreclosure. In 2001 SHELTER ROCK MINISTRIES inc was formed. In 2002 they nearly lost their house in Boone to foreclosure but saved it the the day before the auction. It does not sound like there was a lot of money from a sale of a business, which would mean they did not give up a lot to go be missionaries as they claim. Since 2001, They have been building a new business (SRM) to enable them to semi retire while the ministry can be managed by a few employees and the occasional guidance from Steven and Catherine Reese.
No matter what has happened at SRM. Praise be to God for the souls that have been saved by srm showing up where they have gone to. Gods word will not return void. Those people that accepted Jesus as their personal savior will be in heaven regardless of the things that have transpired within the corrupt organization. I think it necessary to expose the other person with whom Steven Reese had the affair with, Megan D. the violinist of Shelter Rock for the past 3 1/2 years. Dont just give your money away based on a few very well rehearsed speeches given by a professional speaker trained to look and act for the camera. Steven has not gone to Seminary. What makes him a pastor?? Anyone can obtain the title "PASTOR" from the internet. Shelter Rock as a church in Boone, NC has been shrinking. The Spirit of God has retreated and so have the people. The every Tuesday night dinner for the poor, service and distribution of provision was canceled. The Sunday morning service has been canceled. You can see what Steven and Catherine are concentrating their efforts on, The presence and illusion of Shelter Rock Ministries on TV. This is where there money comes from. There is no accountability on TV. People see a great show for 27 minutes and then give money every month and do not look further into the structured misrepresentations of Shelter Rock.

Please!!! People who know of the affair and money laundering, please unite together and do something. This scam against the Appalachian people and the supporters of Shelter Rock must be stopped. I was helped by them. They exploit you and drop you when done with your photo shoot or if you question them.
My stomach turns at the thought of believing anything Steven Reese teaches.

Shelter rock is their cash cow. They will run it until they are shut down or until the supporters completely fall away.
Most people that are capable of thinking for them selves have left by choice or have been squeezed out by the Reese's. Catherine Reese is not going to be to eager to dump Steven and have Shelter Rock closed while the money is flowing in from sponsors. That is how the lies just keep piling up. They can not face the truth and explain it to people, so they just keep lying about one thing after the other.

They're for sure going to the bad place. That's just terrible. I've been hearing for the last 6 or 7 years that they've recked several marriages by telling people that go there bad advice. And now to find out they are taking money from contributors saying they are helping the poor and giving to children, but all they are really doing is getting massages at the Spa at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville. That sucks.
I worked at the inn and have seen them there many times. It is not an inexpensive place either. We are talking about $375 and up to over a thousand bucks a night for the full package and prime dates that they have stayed there. They are not cheap to themselves......

Anyone familiar with this place? Apparently they claim to be a church,and the pastor Reece is not even a real minister. So I hear they are a non-profit but not a church. they get lots of money and donations, but have stopped feeding the poor but the Reeces have hugh expensive SUV's and are spending money like it's free.
What's going on at this place? Lots of rumors about that "pastor" having a rental condo at Sugar Mountain, along with a young college girl that "assists" with things at Shelter Rock. I also heard they are closing up and moving to Myrtle Beach.
That young girl, Megan, now resides in a condo on sugar mountain. How cozy is that??
They have stopped doing a lot of things. Those programs cost money and take time. They have scaled back on Day Of Blessing events, stopped Tuesday night dinner and distribution, discontinued Sunday morning services, cut back on dental clinics and changed the format in which you can sponsor SPECIFIC a child to a general sponsorship. He has drastically increased his production of sermon series that are available for a FEE. This is a neat set up for him. He Cuts back on programs, divides up the half hour TV episodes in 2 segments. The FIRST: Has testimonials and 4 year old pictures/video of old events that rarely take place anymore mixed in with a new piece of media here and there. The SECOND: His interpretation of a bible message that he obtained from the internet while self advertising the rest of the story available on CD for purchase. The second part is what you are sponsoring. Sounds similar to the scheme Bernie Madoff had going. Receive lots of money for a misrepresented purpose and pay for the TV time and everything else with the $ received, Until people catch on to the scheme and drop it. Wake up America and investigate for yourself. Shelter Rock Ministries is not accountable to any one. Thats right, No charity BBB, EVANGELICAL COUNCIL FOR FINANCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY or Charity Navigator. It's clear that it is a wholly and privately owned company that intentionally avoids accountability. In 2001 the initial board of directors included: Steven Reese, Catherine Reese, Patsy Reese, David Reese, Charles Reese, Ian Verhaeghe. All were family members. WHO is on the Board Now?????? If you question PASTOR STEVEN REESE, you will be immediately expelled and they find again another uniformed replacement. This is what the current employees work under. They live in FEAR. Pray for them.

Wow....I was just approached today by Steven to do some business,(not SRM related) I decided to look him up and found all this. Never heard of SRM, but that's the business card he gave me. He was sharply dressed and a bit flirtatious....and for a woman of 60, that's always suspect...now I know why and won't even call him back.The "deal" wasn't suitable for my business, but glad I looked him up and found out what a non-ethical person he seems to be. I'll be checking out this forum in the future!

And to add to my comment, something Steve said to me was very astonishing....but only after I found out about his ministry.......things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmm It related to making money as opposed to provideing a venue to help out non-profits anbd charities...and not charging them any $. In my experience the most "religios" speaking folks are the most deceptive....no wonder I don't go to church!

Goldie.. be careful.. those of us that have worked with them and now have been shunned know all to well what they are capeable of. we worked our hearts out for them and had others in our church helping to and now they ignore us and wont even return a phone call and we never confronted them about anything. and although we had decided to stop helping once we found out about what was going on we did nothing to be treated the way we have been. we are taking the "good" things we learned from them and using it to build a ministry.. but not for profit, trust me its about helping others and serving God and his people. not about money. we work off the donations of food we get and help those we can.. we know in time it will grow and we will reach more of those in need. but I'm glad you didnt get taken in by them, Steven is smooth and will have you hooked before you realize it.. personally I always thought he was fake and out for the glory. not helping others. blessings.
