Why is the elders in the church letting the pastor and family use the church money as their own. I am requesting a independent audit be done.

Topix is the best place for that. SMH. If you don't like whats going on there go to another church. There is plenty. But don't get on here a bash good people. Oh I forgot that is all this site is good for.

So you're such the upstanding member you choose to question their authority on here? You're concern or opinion is yours maybe its valid, I'd say its not, but bringing it to the trash pile of gossip is ridiculous

OH MY...OH MY. "If" an audit is needed I will assure you (100%) Topix is NOT the route you need to take. If Topix is the only place you can get any backing I seriously qestion if there needs to be one.

It doesn't matter where they take it if it's a concern. Maybe this was the wrong place but they wanted someone to listen , Have you seen the receipts for God's work?

It does not matter which church you stay home from. Unknown
If you are not happy with the status quo of Coveanant Church. You can address the church's deacons, elders or counsel members after you have prayed about this situation.
If all of the above fails find a new church to attend. I dont think this is the forum to seek religous advice or counsel. You really need to hear from headquarters. Pray Pray Pray!

The church's by laws give the elders complete control. "Members" don't vote nor do they have a say. The pastor is considered "head elder". You could request an independent audit, it will not happen because they are doing nothing wrong according to the church by laws. Best thing you can do......find another church...,,things there will never change.

Covanant is a great church to attend. They play by the books, and if you were to go to their homes you would see they act the same in and out of the church. There is no need to bash people doing Gods work. If you have a problem or are concerned by something, please contact one if the pastors, I can tell you that I'm sure they will be glad to clarify or assist you in any way.

apparently you churchies dont get /sarcasm, so let me spell it out. You know they are stealing your money and buying drugs and hand jobs probably. Someone is bank rolling all the male prostitutes, and crackhouses/crankhouses. But dont act sore, they are just making a market. Doing Gods work.

Apparently the elders and members of this church gave the pastor far too much control. A church should be open about their spending and every business in the church. You have a right to question any and all of it as a member paying for it from your tithes. The are human and are able to fall. If you choose not to question anything regarding your pastor or other church members, you are are placing more faith in man than God. Pastors are not rulers and are to be questioned. If I have a pastor that is not answering my questions and feels he is above such matters, then it is time to get a new pastor. Churches are now huge businesses. Churches that are owned by the pastor or a few members are not churches for the right purpose. A church is of the members, not a handful of select men.

They may play by the books just the wrong one, they need to play by the Bible. They think you need a band strobe lights and etc to have church and that stuff that has no place in the church will get you no where and when they die they are going nowhere

That is not true by any means. Everyone at this church has helped not only myself but my family and several others. These people are genuinely good people. Who DO go by the bible and base all of their actions on GODS word and GODS word alone. These people literally go out of their way, set time aside from their families to help people who can do nothing what so ever for them in return. God has blessed these people because they deserved it! jealously is a horrible thing, you shouldn't bad mouth a congregation because of it.

Just go ask to see the pastor's salary or church expenses. You will not see it. That's a sign of a problem.

They have meetings every month so that we can all see the salary and expenses. Its no ones fault but your own if you don't attend.
