We thank God for Pastor Bill Winston and others like him, for having the vision, courage and leadership to pioneer such efforts as Covenant Bank! Although the bank did not reach the monumental goal determined by the government and FDIC regulators, he and the members of his congregation are to be commended! What LOVE! What HOPE! What UNITY they must have in order to come TOGETHER when many families, communities and churches across this great nation are divided! We hope that his members are grateful that the Lord has called them to a work of this magnitude and significance. We pray that other pastors will rally around Pastor Winston and encourage his bold venture by adding their support. Think of it – they had assets of $69 million! Imagine what would happen if 5 mega-churches or even 50 growing congregations were in on this venture! Be assured that it’s NOT over! The Bible says a righteous man may fall seven times, but he will rise again! Oh no, it’s FAR from being over. It’s only the beginning! It is time for the Body of Christ to ARISE and show forth God’s power, glory and dominion!

What biblical truth if pastor Winston had some more congegrations supporting their brother in Christ vision covenant bank would be much stronger and still standing.In the spirit realm I believe this bank is stil God's nr one bank and God is waiting for the followers of Christ to come on board to support their brother instead of putting their trust in babylon system.what are you waiting for America Christ followers get the bank open again for the Glory of God

I share the same opinion. I think it was honorable for the congregation to step out on faith to help someone else. As a business owner, I have done things that others simply don't understand. I know I heard from God. I know it was His plan for my life. Yet, not everything came to fruition as I wanted. But my failures in life only prepared me for what I am walking into right now. We talk about preachers who get money to fatten their own pockets. Yet, here is a man that attempted to help others and you still complain. Most millionaires will confess that every business adventure was not successful. They just had enough courage to try again.

he should have gotten Kenneth Copeland to help out, and then maybe Jesse Duplantis and Jerry Savelle could have aided. What would Tony Evans say about this "urban alternative" to banking????

Bill Winston is a Man of God!! He wanted to help people, he also bought shares to help the bank to continue in the Bussiness. It is easy to criticize, but he is a man of vision and integrity!!!, Go on Pastor Wnston, preach THE WORD, continue to help people, getting them out of lack, poverty and ignorance, BE BLESSED!!!!

Being prosperous is not to accumulate money because you don't know what tomorrow will bring; the purpose in being prosperous is to invest in the Kingdom of God and by doing so God will take care of you. Pastor Winston is a godly man and his purpose is to help the body of Christ get out of lack and poverty and to show them with the Word that it is God's perfect will to prosper in every area of their lives. Why can men in the world prosper and no ones criticizes them but when a man of God Prospers they are attacked? Face it! everybody needs money and God has shown us through men like brother Winston that money has a purpose, what is yours? Money in the hands of the body of Christ is to be a blessing to others; just like brother Winston has been a blessing to so many people.
