Do you have copies of checks? Do you their tax forms? Have you seen him with another woman? I am just saying this seems like this has gone way to far, and every day something new pops up about him. Sure hope you all never have any dirty laundry to be aired out for the world to see. Sounds like people should be spending time in prayer for this family and this church instead of digging up dirt.
If BS would have done the right thing, repent and walk away, no one would be trying to find proof. BS has bullied, threatened, and harassed so many people. His family has gone right along with him in this intidation and harassment. You don't get to be a pastor in charge of Gods people and Gods money when you misuse, have horrid misspending, commit adultery, and assault an someone just because they dare to drive thru the churches parking lot. Stop trying to destroy the church and there would be no reason for us to tell the truth on here. You can't ask for proof and then tell us to shhh and go pray. Read Matthew Mark and Luke, Jesus called it like he saw it. He did not back down. He publicly shamed the pharasee for taking people's money and using it for themselves. Is the Smith family doing anything different? How many of us get to stay home for 9 months claiming to be sick, no medical excuse and still get a paycheck? How many get to come and go as they please and still get a paycheck that never drops ? How many of us make 50,000 with no qualifications other than the last name Smith. I am praying for the Smith family but they need to show SOME REMORSE. The first service had no more than 25 people in it and I think half of that was staff and that was when BS was still there. He should have made a public apology and walked away. Not drag this thru the court system. Just calling it as I see it. I learned in church this is what were supposed to do. I'm following my pastors advice. Just being transparent.

Does BS really have a stalking protection order against him? I heard it was a church member.

I agree. This entire blog is a disgrace to anyone who claims to be a Christian. I'm pretty sure the Bible says if you have a disagreement with someone to go directly to them. For instance, not make a blog about them. This is the very reason people do not like Christians and do not go to church. This is disgusting, trying to defame a family and publicly humiliate them. Let's get back to the roots of what we believe because this is certainly not it.

Amazing "Really" your posts just yesterday told a different story. You were the one questioning why "big bad guy" was deleting facebooks and now you telling us what Christians need to be doing. Seems you need to make up your mind what side of the fence you are on.

its funny how everyone holds the members and staff accountable to be Christians but no holds the Pasto and his family accountable. There is nothing wrong with exposing the truth. There are many stories in the bible to support that. Didn't Paul shame the church for turning a blinds eye to an open affair, going on with church like nothing is wrong is a sin. BS making this drag this thru the court system is a sin. Anyone that stands up to him gets stalked and harassed. We have all just found a safe way to expose home. Sorry Sean but you are now being victimized because you dared to expose him. I pray for you and your families safety. Sin does not glorify God. People hate Christians because we cover up and lie about our sins , people hate us because we are hypocrites. People hate Us because our pastors stand on pulpit and tell us if we're not tithing then we taking up air in his church, when he uses the money for himself and his family. How many times did someone come in looking for help and he and Kim gave them the.# to a food shelter or the homeless shelter, only to turn around and use the church's money to buy themselves a fancy lunch. It's a lot harder standing up for the truth than making us look bad. Here a clue people already know. What makes us look bad is a pastor that glorifies violence and get dozens of likes , what makes us look bad is that our pastors face book never has one spiritual word. What makes us look bad is when we sit passively by when our pastor bullies and destroys life after life. There is not one thing happening to this family that they did not do to someone else. They fired family after family or BS just ran them out leaving them with nothing. They have stolen from God.

The pastor has 20+ years of ministry and helping people? the select few are trying to disgrace him and make him look bad. I can only hope you who are putting a family on trial will be subject to the same. This is being dragged through the court system because Dave Benecke is paying for it. Bennett never took anything into the courts. It's in the courts because the Beneckes agreed to fund if and want control of the church, which is also interesting Colleen appointed herself a board member. Conflict of interest much?

Your dad is very helpful, just ask your mom. No one needs to disgrace him, he does well enough on his own. Just read his face book and if you want more listen to his monologue at the beginning of every service where he uses it to poke fun of, destroy lives, embarrass others, make threatening statements, lie about people, had his own trial and was the judge and jury from the alter. Just calling it like I see it. Awe. He claims to be transparent, we're just helping him out. You my dear need to start looking for a job and spend time really finding out who God is. He is not your sugar daddy. He is our Heavenly Father who has had enough with your family not helping HIS CHILDREN. This is his church and he will have his way with it. If the Smiths would Stop denying , stop lying, stop stalking, stop texting threats, maybe the rest if us could live on you and pray for you.

This is the first positive and encouraging news I have heard yet. It is about time a board member actually was an active member of the church (which is how it is supposed to be) Beneke's are using their own money (not the church members tithes) now that is foreign idea to the Smith family! I am so happy to see someone that has no financial gain getting control of the church. I hope that they find a Senior pastor that is from the outside to start fresh. I hate to say it but I was not impressed with the new one. He does not have enough qualifications to take on a church with this much baggage. Too many ways to pick sides instead of just coming to hear the word. Many prayers and Blessings to the Beneke family! Too many people think he had a part with getting rid of BS for his own gain..
I would also like to add as long as I have known the Benekes, they have poured their time and lives into this church. They have given their tithes which is more than I can say for the Smiths. They have gotten donations and supported TCAP in any way that they can. They obviously love this church to be putting their own personal money into it! God Bless you Benekes for helping to save our chruch

Some one recently posted that we need to be positive, I agree. Up til now- all I could do was get feelings off my chest & yea as it may have come acrossed differently to whom may have read it,,,,today I read about the Beneke's & yes I too agree that they are giving their time as always & now if they are supporting $$$ court costs as I have seen on line - then God bless em!! I have told them personally how proud my family is of them & especially the way their own son handled his way with situations - just proves that this family is doing it the right way. Dave n Connie - if you are reading this, keep doing what you are doing- not for earthly treasurers or self gratitude - continue to do it for what you believe in, pleasing God & help His church -- you are setting a great example, not just financially but spiritually. thank you again -(there's always some thing that come out Good from the bad -- this is one of them)

Galatians 5:19-26
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christís have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

"Now we command you, brethren, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which ye received of us " II Thess. 3:6.

lewdness- This would take all day and all night for all the examples,- please refer to first 3-5 minutes of every sermon he has ever done. You are sure to find many examples. Or check his face book late night explosions that do not even make sense

idolatry- the fact that he refuses to help the hungry, homeless, and hurting but will spend over a 100 dollars on a pair of jeans.

adultery- Lets just not go there but we already know this story and it hasnt stopped.

hatred- Where would I begin Wyatt Erp?

envy- Always wanting what someone else has

drunkenness- too many examples but will name the one in front of the entire youth camp on stage.

revelries- kind of speaks for itself

jealousies- Who isnt he jealous of?

Selfish ambitions- how he will not walk away from the church is a perfect example of this. Not his money and anyone in their right Christian mind would know this and would fear God.

I think it is safe that we need to depart from this man and he and his family should have no part in this Church. They helped to cover and lie until it was too late.
