chad a everson on Safety

Uh oh, look what Cultbuster is reporting:

Lawsuit Coming for Trinity (click here).

Trinity, you were warned about this so called "pastor's" lack of concern for the flock.

All you "deacons" and "psc members" that would not heed those warnings, this is as much your fault as it is his.

The TRUTH shall set you free.

Stay tuned folks, this will be interesting.

chad a everson on Sandusky

With the Sandusky story coming to light, it just sounds so familiar. Leaders of an established organization covering up the abuse of a child.

I know a so called "pastor" that has covered up missing money and the abuse of at least one minor that carter got busted for. Too bad all the other carter cronies that covered for him did not get fired or arrested.

When you support corrupt leaders like this, you get what you got. It may look successful for a time, but it will come crashing down one day.

chad a everson on Warnings

Anonymous POSTS:

"You cowards! If this man is evil then, for God's sake, confront him, challenge him, publicly rebuke him.

If he is simply disliked, then "shake the dust from your feet" and move on.

But what do you do? You hide and snipe at him from afar, gossiping like a bunch of pubescent schoolgirls accomplishing nothing but building up your own contempt and sinfulness."

He HAS BEEN confronted more than once, face to face, and many HAVE moved on because of his deeds and the cowardly leadership in churches that have allowed this wolf to continue to ravage the flock even after he and his band of thugs were exposed for what they really are.

His actions continue to be exposed, and you call it gossip. However, others out there clearly deserve a warning and that is what this is about. Use you good ‘ole evangelism analogy, if you were driving by a house that was on fire and saw the people just sitting in it unaware, would you not warn them of their impending doom? Trinity was warned, but unfortunately those in Byron and Starke did not have that luxury until it was too late.

WARNING churches, there are wolves in sheep's clothing. The Bible warns about it, but when it is brought to light in your church, you want to hide behind “not messing with God's anointed.” Well I submit to you, God's anointed would have taken heed long ago and not continued to destroy the Church of the Living God in the name of Jesus Christ.

The TRUTH marches on.

chad a everson on Moving On

These guys are on the prowl folks, Trinity, do not just let them slither into another church to destroy. The third time is the trick, do what you must.

Search committees, continue to do your homework, do not simply believe this site or any other, call your potential pastor's previous churches, ask about the finances and the attendance, before, during, and after his departure. Do financial, legal, and criminal background checks. The Internet is not always the truth, but it can lead you to some solid sources. It is worth not rushing in, do not let some smooth talker worm his way in without you earnestly seeking out the truth about who the man really is. If he is truly God led, he will sit and wait on the Holy Spirit to lead and move. Faith is required, but God has given you the resources and the intelligence to NOT be stupid.

You search committees are not only there to seek out God's will, but also to protect the families He has put under your protection. Leaders in the church WILL be held to a higher standard, and that is not just the pastor. Are you listening, Sunday school teacher, deacon, youth worker, worship leader, children's worker, pastor search team, trustee? If you have been called to this role, then remember, you answer to the Almighty God, not man.

Be ware, wolves in sheep's clothing exist, just ask those in Byron, Starke, and now Southaven.

chad a everson on History

The following paragraph was posted a couple of weeks ago, and it was held until now. It needs to be said now since this so called "pastor" is on the hunt once again.

"This is the same man who covered up a child molester on his own staff in Florida. He knowingly knew about it and even went so far as to attack the family of the girl involved for having the nerve to say anything and turn in the pervert. Now chad wants to look so high and HOLY please he just makes me SICK!"

This is also the same man who covered up the theft of over $70,000 at his first church in Georgia.

History is something that we are supposed to learn from, not simply repeat. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If another church picks up this bunch of liars and thieves and expects to get a real pastor and staff that is out to do God's will, then do not be surprised when you just continue to give them another place to destroy. Will the insanity ever stop?

Trinity, this is now your problem, stand up and do what the others were afraid to do.

chad a everson on Education

Re-posted as requested from October 16, 2010

The following post is from a current member at Trinity Baptist in Southaven.

My dearest fellow Trinity members,

I am going to write to you because there are some things I feel you should know. Some of this you may know and some you may not, but I think this information may make some of the things we are seeing make more sense. I am not going to print opinions, unreliable information, or hearsay; I only want to give you the facts, although I will give you some of the conclusions I have drawn at the end. The following information comes straight from Chad Everson’s resume, and you can verify by following the links included at the end of this post.

Chad does not have a legitimate doctorate degree, nor is his master’s degree from a notable, accredited institution. As we all know, Chad does not have a problem talking about his time at Mid-America Seminary. It gives him credibility because MABTS is well regarded, especially in our area, because it is so close. He threw it around quite a bit when he came in view of a call because Dr. Mahony was there. He did not graduate from MABTS, though. He finished his “education” at Andersonville Baptist Seminary.

Why is this important? A Master’s of Divinity (the traditional program for those who want to pastor) at MABTS requires 88 semester hours, which is 30 classes and generally takes 3 years or longer to complete. The Master’s of Theology degree from Andersonville only requires 30 semester hours, which is only 10 classes and, according to Andersonville’s website, can be completed in as little as 12 months. What does that mean? It means that our pastor has less education than most of the rest of our staff, and I use “most” only because I don’t know Jon Rushing’s educational background. The major Southern Baptist seminaries don’t even recognize degrees or coursework from Andersonville.

The “Doctor of Ministry” degree from Lake Charles Bible College is no better: mail in a few hundred dollars, read and complete 5 workbooks, and anyone can have this degree. It is basically a diploma mill. What does MABTS require to receive a doctorate? A Master’s from an accredited institution with no lower than a “B” average, 2 years of ministry experience, and 32 doctoral level hours, including a major ministry project, seminars, and a final major exam. It also takes generally THREE YEARS to complete this program. Even the application process is difficult – it takes the doctoral committee 60 days to review applications to the program, whereas Lake Charles’ website states that you “can even start the day you apply.” Getting a real doctorate is NOT easy – talk to anyone who has done it or attempted it. It is so intense, many pastors have to take a sabbatical from their churches to finish it, and I have even met some ministers who have nearly lost their families due to the time consuming nature of the program. Calling yourself a doctor of anything with a “degree” like Chad’s this is a true slap in the face to anyone who actually put in the time and effort to really earn theirs. Would you let your open heart surgery be performed by a doctor who bought their doctor’s degree and put in little time or effort? I didn’t think so; neither would I. Why do we expect any less from one who we trust with our church’s spiritual health?

For those of you who were here when Bro. Jim was presented in view of a call 20 years ago: Do you remember the big stink created about his doctorate obtained through Luther Rice Seminary? Do you remember Dr. Skinner being so upset by the lack of requirements needed to graduate from LRS? This is so much worse. At least LRS requires that you actually do real work, even if it is by correspondence.

MABTS Master of Divinity:

Andersonville Master of Theology:

MABTS Doctor of Ministry:

Lake Charles Bible College Doctor of Ministry:

My conclusions:

Why is this relevant? Why does this bother me, and why should it bother you? Because we have a pastor who is passing himself off as something he is not. THAT is a fundamental problem with anyone, but this is inexcusable for a pastor. Transparency of a pastor should not be optional! How can a pastor expect to build relationships with his church if he isn’t real? He never said that he did graduate from Mid-America, but he conveniently leaves out where he did finish. You can check this for yourself. Check out his personally posted profiles at , , , , and so on.

If he is so proud of his time at Mid-America and lists it under “education”, why purposefully leave out Andersonville and Lake Charles? Because Chad knows that other pastors know the reputation of those “institutions,” and it will defeat the purpose. Why else would someone want to obtain a doctorate and not tell everyone where it came from? It is interesting that the very thing he has used to try give himself credibility, in my opinion, has discredited him in the deceptive way he has gone about it. And, while we’re at it, am I the only one who has a problem with a pastor promoting himself on these professional sites? What is the purpose? Shouldn’t promoting the cause of Christ be more important than promoting ourselves?

And why is it okay to take the “short route” with your “education?” Just to call yourself a doctor? Just to have the prestige and recognition? When does a pastor, above anyone, need to promote himself? Isn’t it his job to promote the Lord Jesus, not himself? Aren’t you only cheating yourself out of a proper education just to get a few letters to tack onto the beginning of your name? Aren’t you cheating your churches out of the knowledge and insight you would have gained by obtaining a real degree? And if a pastor is willing to take the “short route” to a degree, in what else is he willing to take a short cut?

I love you, Trinity! Remember to be like Peter. Keep your eyes fixed on Christ and not the crashing waves around you, and by all means, don’t sink!!

chad a everson on Performances

Beware, he is in his element with his "meetings." He deserved an Oscar for his performances in Byron and Starke. Be prepared for a great show.

If you are not with him, then you're a "nut" and a troublemaker who is lost.

If you want to take care of this, confront this megalomaniac in this service. Stand up to him, and if anyone puts their hands on you, press charges. Call the local paper, call the local Sheriff's office if you have to, but by God, make a stand.

ENOUGH Trinity, stop being bullied by this coward and his brainwashed minions. Take back what God entrusted you with, HIS CHURCH.

chad a everson on Reconciliation

The next time chad preaches to warn you about taking the Lord's Supper without first going and reconciling yourselves to those that have ought against you, watch him to see if he goes and tries to reconcile those Brothers and Sisters that have been harmed by his actions and his false teachings.

Just saying, practice what you preach.

chad a everson on Moving On

Trinity members, there are only two options for you:

Leave and find a church that you can serve God in and let the wolves have it, or you can fire him. The latter means someone has to confront him head on. Who will say, "Here am I, Lord."

The Southern Baptist Convention is not going to, nor is able to help you either. Much of the SBC "leadership" has stood by an watched him destroy three different local church bodies. They have shown on more than one occasion that they do not care.

He will always have some sort of cult following. Just make sure that the people who follow him have the information they need to make an informed decision. If they still wish to follow him and believe his lies, then that is on them. They will answer to God just as we ALL WILL.

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

chad a everson on Judging Others

The Bible is clear that God alone judges by seeing our hearts, so when we have to correct another, we must be very careful:

"Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted" (Galatians 6:1).

Personally, if you think you are Spiritual in the first place, then you may have a humility problem to begin with. So approach the person as someone who is just as dirty as they, but someone who is willing to work to a closer relationship with God, together.

The core problem that I have witnessed is that when a “pastor” teaches on how to deal with sin in other people’s life, no one will examine that teaching or that teacher in light of Holy Scripture even though they claim to be teaching Scripture.

Scripture itself exhorts us to do so when it says, "dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1).

This is to those of you who have listened to and followed the teachings of false prophets such as the eversons. If now all of a sudden you find a different interpretation by another teacher or pastor, then you must still measure that against God’s Word. Allow God to be your teacher. Stop following the beliefs of the Baptists or the Catholics or the Methodists. Get one on one with God. He is the Great Teacher and He wants a relationship, not a visit from you on Sundays.

You have seen a fellow servant of the Lord sign his writings with, following God, not man. You too should do so. Blogs, commentaries, and teachings from solid Christians can all be good resources that might give you that author’s perspective, but there is nothing better than time in God’s Word and prayer and meditation on who God is and what He wants for you in this life.

Keep marching on Brothers and Sisters, the skies will reveal Him coming in all His Glory one day. All of the evil in the world will be overcome. My God is faithful to complete the work He has started in us.

Onward, Christians!

chad a everson on Being Questioned

So is it right to question a preacher regarding his teachings? After all, these guys have the seminary degrees and even fake doctorates, but they have all this education. Who are we, the lowly sheep to question these men and women who have declared themselves authorities on the Bible and how to act like a Christian. Well I hate to break it to the “great noble” baptist conventions and those of you who blindly follow them, the veil was torn in two. We no longer need a Pharisee to read the Word to us.

Compare what the preachers teach to what the Bible says. Even Paul was not above having his teachings checked:

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true" (Acts 17:11).

Who could teach the Scriptures more reliably than Paul? Were the Bereans criticized for comparing his teachings to Scripture? No! On the contrary, they were commended for doing so. So why are those who question the teachings of some of the most popular preachers criticized?

Maybe this verse will help answer that question:

“For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

The myth is that the Gospel is only for some. Many Christians need to feel like they are part of an elite group that only some people can join. This is a lie and a false doctrine. Any way you slice it, “that dog won’t hunt,” as some like to say.

Those that just sit back and agree to disagree, because this is merely a philosophical difference, are sorely mistaken. You are allowing this false doctrine that has created so called “pastors” such as the eversons, to tear up the very fabric of what you truly believe in your hearts. These liars and false teachers are destroying people in the name of a Holy God and the sacrifice that He made for ALL.

Blessed is Jehovah my Rock, who teaches my hands for war, my fingers for battle (Psalms 144:1).

The TRUTH marches on.

chad a everson on False Teachers

This charge I commit to you, my son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before about you, in order that you might war a good warfare by them, holding faith and a good conscience, which some have put away and made shipwreck as to faith. Among these are Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan so that they may learn not to blaspheme.
(1 Timothy 1:18-20)

Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. But shun profane, vain babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. And their word will eat like a gangrene; among whom are Hymeneus and Philetus, who have erred concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past, and who overthrow the faith of some.
(2 Timothy 2:15-18)

Here Paul has mentioned false teachers by name. He does this so that not only can they be warned, but so that others can be warned of their false teachings as well. The men mentioned here, through their false teachings, have "shipwrecked" their faith. By their false teachings, they and those who follow them become more ungodly. In order that we may become more Godly, we must first stand against false teachers and their corrupt teachings.

How do you know who is a false teacher and who is not?

Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruits, nor can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you shall know them. Not everyone who says to Me, Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven.
(Matthew 7:15-21)

What is the will of God?

Master, which is the great commandment in the Law? Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.
(Matthew 22:36-40)

chad a everson on being Biblical

But there were false prophets among the people, as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly put forward wrong teachings for your destruction, even turning away from the Lord who gave himself for them; whose destruction will come quickly, and they themselves will be the cause of it. And a great number will go with them in their evil ways, through whom the true way will have a bad name. And in their desire for profit they will come to you with words of deceit, like traders doing business in souls: whose punishment has been ready for a long time and their destruction is watching for them.

chad a everson on Blogging

The justification for this site continues to get questioned, even though, now for a third time, a church has been crippled by the same ravenous wolf.

"The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron...If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, brought up in the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed" (1 Timothy 4:1-2,6).

chad a everson on New Posts

Just as you say the blog owner knows nothing about Trinity, you do not know me or any of the other people that post here.

I know this, you are right, there is nothing new to post, because this is just the same old story, a bunch of Pharisees being Pharisees, just different victims and a different place. The methods are the same. Bully, deny, and lie to cover their sin while condemning those that disagree and hold them accountable, the Calvinist way. If you people would actually stop and take a look at what kind of man you are following, you would realize that he is nothing but a bully that tries to be bigger than he is.

I expect each of you to seek God, stop listening to false prophets and wolves that have infiltrated your church. The Bible is clear that they exist, yet when they are called out, people like you, john, chad, michele, jeff, want to protect them instead of dealing with them. And yet, you want to call others out for their sin and call it tough love. Really?

I am doing what God called me to do. You think you know who I am, just pick up the phone and confront me or better yet, drop by. This site was set up to warn and protect churches like Trinity. I do not expect or care if you accept or understand me or anyone else who stands up for Truth and stands up to the evil that is in the world, such as false teachers in our pulpits. God is able and He still uses people today to fight His battles just as He always has.

Now, john, you can continue to offer up your attitude of hate and sarcasm, or you can seek God and you will find that following this false teacher and his doctrine of hate and tyranny is not God’s will for your life or anyone else.

chad a everson on Destroying Churches

For those that need reminding, since this is exactly what is going down at Trinity. Remember, he pulled the same stunts at his two previous churches.

Keep watching him destroy your church Deacons. Stand up and do what no other deacon board has done where he has been a "pastor," protect the flock that God has put under your care. Otherwise you are as much a Pharisee as he is.

REPOSTED From November 2009

The Background

Chad Everson came to Madison Street Baptist Church around Easter of 2004. The Personnel Committee had been given referrals by men such as John Sullivan, Herb Revis, and Rick Coram, men who MSBC had given place to on many occasions. Unfortunately, hearing the testimony of these men had really been the only research done concerning the past of this man who also allegedly held a doctorate degree from a reputable seminary. Now we know this was fraudulent as well.

Chad brought on Jeff Summers within a year. Jeff was supposedly a visionary children’s pastor who had been with him in Georgia. Our church started an Upward Soccer ministry and brought a great many families out to enjoy the sport and to hear the Gospel. Unfortunately, this ministry also gave Chad an outlet for his very competitive attitude and arrogant behavior. Many people experienced this through interactions with Chad and Jeff. These two were responsible for dozens of families, due to those experiences, who refused to visit or continue to attend MSBC.

Blindly over the first couple of years, many of us sat there and watched dozens of families leave the church. Later we found, that we were lied to as to why some left when we asked about them. We expected some turnover, but what we didn’t know, was the truth of why these people were leaving. Some left due to the way Chad and Jarrod were spending money with no accountability. Some left because of an interaction they had with Chad and then heard about it from the pulpit. Several were told if you don’t like it, then leave. Many of them should have said something about the arrogance, the unilateral financial decisions, and the mean-spirited attitudes. They would simply leave and say that God was calling them elsewhere. That may have been true; however, this merely left many there that would inevitably come to doubt their own relationships with Christ because of the arrogance and deceptive actions from leadership. Many began to get a sense that something was wrong but focused the doubt on their own selves instead of on leadership. It simply caused great confusion among the congregation.

For three years, many toiled with their shoulders to the wheel really not paying attention to what was going on behind the scenes as we thought God’s work was still being done despite the doubt and confusion running rampant throughout the church. All along, under the guise of deception, Chad had gained total control of the church through the by-laws, through the teaching of Calvinism in the kindler’s group, and through Jarrod’s choices of Sunday school curriculum, which in most cases was not much more than quotes from some of the most extreme hyper-Calvinists. The kindler’s group was a group of men that met with Chad and Jarrod once a week for what was supposed to be a deeper study in God’s Word. It apparently turned in to a lesson on Calvinism and in my opinion, a way for Chad to slowly push his false doctrine and ultimate authority. Also, unknown by many was that Jeff Stockdale, the youth pastor, was teaching Calvinism secretively as well.

The Demise

The new Family Life Center opened in 2006, and from day one it was a fiasco. During the first service, it took almost two hours for families to check their children in to the nursery. Chad had invited a few folks from the church’s past including prior pastors, to the ceremony and then “forgot” to acknowledge them or to utilize them to pray or speak. In my opinion, this simply further reflects his arrogant attitude. The rules established for the use of the facilities were built around convenience for Chad, Jarrod, and their clicks. The rules almost made it impossible to use the facilities for families to work out together. For example, men and women working out together was prohibited. If you complained or offered suggestions, you were accused of being negative and not being loyal to leadership. You were accused of and talked about having a bad attitude supposedly due to not getting your way. You were labeled a troublemaker and a target was placed on you as one to watch and keep in check.

In February of 2007, a certain young deacon, Andy, had come to the conclusion that he was going to have to divorce his wife. He submitted in writing to Chad his resignation as a deacon and a member of MSBC. That resignation started a war behind the scenes that only a select few were aware of. As this is going on, around May of that year, there were several members of MSBC that received a letter allegedly from Jarrod’s previous church, stating that he had been caught viewing pornography on several church computers and pointed people to a website that told the story.

So, Chad decides to address these two things from the pulpit. He announces one week that a crazy guy at his dad’s church is out to get Jarrod and is spreading viscous lies about his family and that is what the letters were about. He also decided to bring Andy’s name before the church to let us know that he was under church discipline because he had abandoned his wife, some three months after he had resigned and moved his letter to another church. These announcements from the pulpit went over the majority of people’s heads and were disregarded by most. However, it caused some to further research and dig into the pasts of these men.

It was discovered that there had been a large sum of money allegedly stolen from Chad’s church, Day Spring Baptist, in Byron, GA, now Shady Grove Baptist Church. Chad was the pastor at the time of the alleged theft and had been advised to report the person responsible for the stolen money, however, as of this writing, to my knowledge, it has still not been reported to the proper authorities. It was also found to be true that Jarrod had in fact been caught viewing pornography on church computers at Pray’s Mill Baptist Church. Chad allegedly knew about it and had not informed our Deacon Board. Once it was truly fleshed out, it was apparent that there was great inconsistency with how Jarrod’s issue had been dealt with and how Mike and Chad Everson dealt with others and their issues within their churches. These men wanted to throw others out of the church; however, they forgot the story about the plank and the speck from the Bible.

It was known among a few of the deacons that in September of 2007, Chad was going to once again bring up Andy’s name to remove him from the church role. Thirty-five or so men met with Andy days before this was done. He sat and poured out his heart as he accounted the story of how he had been treated by Chad and others he thought were friends, and how he had been lied about and pursued by Chad and his followers, especially Adam who was supposed to be a really good friend of Andy. Many of these men were hearing the story for the first time. This young man had literally been through hell over the last year. When asked why Chad was pursuing him as such, he simply responded that he did not know. He said that Chad would not accept his resignation, and that he had to repent to Chad and take his wife back in order to make it right in Chad’s eyes.

The Christian Law Association was contacted by one of the trustees and was told that we as a church had no standing in this man’s life anymore. He had resigned. When the lawyer was told that the pastor would not accept his resignation, his response was, “So what, no matter, he is no longer a member. This pastor is setting your church up for a law suit.”

The Confrontation

Ironically, many in the church did not know but Andy had already moved his membership to another church. Even though Chad knew this, one Sunday night towards the end of August, Chad was warned by, Mark, the Chairman of the Deacons, in front of another deacon that if he went though with throwing this man out of the church, that he was going to cause people to leave. Chad responded, “I don’t care if two or two hundred leave, I’m doing this.” Well that fateful Sunday night came, September 2, 2007 was set for the ousting of Andy. A deacon’s meeting was held prior to the service that night.

I am not sure why Adam was there because he was not an active deacon at the time, but he was, other than that it was the active deacons and Chad. Chad got some resistance from several of the deacons. Two got mad enough during the meeting to leave before it ended. Once the meeting was over, the service started. It was very evident that Chad was shaken that night as he stumbled through his sermon and cut it short as he was done in a record thirty minutes or so when his sermons would typically run an hour or better.

He finished his sermon and began the announcements. Just before he closed, he stated that he had met with the deacons and based on a “unanimous decision”, which was a lie, that they were going to remove Andy from the role because he had been under church discipline for abandoning his wife and that we should as a church pray for him and reach out to him with the Gospel. Billy tried to ask a question and was not allowed to speak. Chad interrupted him and closed in prayer.

The melee ensued from there. Billy met Chad at the front, got in Chad’s face, and said something, but Chad walked away. Billy yelled, “There you go, that’s what you get, he doesn’t want to talk about it.” Several men including Jeff Stockdale and Jeff Summers, the children’s pastor, grabbed Billy at that point, but he pulled away and left the building. Chad had several more face to face encounters with others questioning his motives for his actions before he could escape the sanctuary that night.

As Billy and his wife were exiting the building, Jeff Summers and Jeff Stockdale physically put their hands on them and whirled them around. This led to Billy and several other men having a very heated exchange with Jeff Summers and Jeff Stockdale right outside the front door of the church that night. As the confrontation was ending, both Jeff’s were asked if either of them had talked with Andy, both answered, “No.” Stockdale made the remark, “He didn’t even know Andy and that there is a lot going on that you don’t know about.” Several of the men responded with, “Then let’s get it out in the open.” Jeff Summers just kept screaming, “You’re crazy!” He finally walked off claiming that Andy had cussed his wife like a sailor.

The Follow Up

The next day, the Florida Baptist Convention was lobbied for assistance. Robert Mounts and John Sullivan received a fax asking for assistance, signed by a dozen or so MSBC deacons, Sunday school teachers, and trustees. It was rumored as the week rocked on that during the Wednesday night service, Chad was going to get it all out in the open and allow for questions to be asked. Well what happened was a staged Emmy winning performance. He cried and claimed that his wife was on chemo. He never addressed the issues; he just cried and carried on like he was the victim and people were just out to get him. He then allowed several men to speak. However they were all just Chad followers. The truth about the doug pittman site was never revealed. He never addressed him covering up Jarrod’s porn viewing from the church before bringing him on board. He didn’t even address the situation of the stolen money that he had covered up at Day Spring.

He paraded a bunch of men on to the stage with him that sat behind him as a show of support. Most of these men didn’t even have a clue what was going on. Only those that praised Chad and vowed their support to him were allowed to speak including Charles Warren who many of us thought was truly a man of God. Chad received several standing ovations during his performance by a majority of the church. Again, most of the crowd that was there had no idea what had happened the previous Sunday night or about any of the details surrounding these issues. The previous Sunday had been Labor Day Weekend so the attendance had been very low. I think this performance was his attempt at a confidence vote.

After that Wednesday night, many families left MSBC. Chad may have been prophetic after all in that two hundred may have very well been the number of people that left in the first wave. The following Friday, the response from John Sullivan was that he had contacted Chad and was told everything was ok. Chad’s arrogance, false accusations, and bashing of “those people” continues to this day.

More and more people left during 2008. Jeff Carter, a youth pastor brought in by Chad, was arrested on lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor in November of 2008. The details of how Chad and Jeff Summers dealt with the fallout from Carter being caught is just now coming out, but believe me, they were both real jerks to that family about that situation long before the police got involved. They both knew about it back in the Summer of 2008; Carter was arrested in November. This family is still in turmoil over how Chad and Jeff treated them and handled the situation. Chad had mentioned from the pulpit that he had a staff member at a previous church that had been accused of raping a girl, and that he had gotten to the bottom of it. Allegedly, she later admitted after being counseled by Chad that she had lied about the incident. Jeff Carter did serve with Chad at Day Spring Baptist Church. Makes you wonder why Chad even brought him to MSBC in the first place. Carter was recently sentenced to 5 years of probation with sex offender conditions, but stay tuned, because that issue may not be over.

In January of 2009, as most people now know, Chad finally resigned only after receiving the call to Trinity Baptist Church in Southaven, MS. His reasoning was that the Starke community was just too evil and his ministry could no longer be effective. Here I thought Christians, and especially pastors, were called to be lights in dark places. I guess they don’t have to practice what they preach. Several of “those people” that had left MSBC were contacted by members of Trinity, but unfortunately, none of the leadership at Trinity took heed.

Chad is apparently doing the same thing at Trinity that he has done at his two previous churches. In my opinion, he is a destructive force that is tearing up churches in the name of doctrine and his own agenda. May God have mercy on him and his followers when they stand before Him.

chad a everson on Shows

Get ready, the confidence vote is coming. Stand firm.

This will not be done as a normal vote, the show is put on and the standing ovations will be the measure.

Be ready to confront this head on. Just sitting back and watching this continue will do more damage than dealing with it.

Follow God, Trinity. Listen to what God is telling you. It may not be popular, but do His will.

chad a everson on Deception

An attempt was made this morning to post a comment asking for "a list of the names of the people on the various groups and committees that are considered to be relevant to matters being discussed on this blog, so that we can talk to those people with whom we feel comfortable about all the issues being brought up."

Nice try, but that will not get posted here. This is simply a last ditch effort for a pre-emptive strike on those that actually might make a stand against this evil.

Trinity, stand up and fight for the True and living God, do what you must to keep this from happening elsewhere, be bolder than the leadership was at the last two churches. Your efforts are working. It amazes me that it took 8 years in Byron, 4 years in Starke, but the destruction has taken less than 2 with you. His ego and arrogance is growing. Let the show begin.

chad a everson on Leadership

Leadership, in the Biblical sense, is about leading like Jesus did, right?

Jesus clearly stated that “the first shall be last,” and “the least among you shall be the greatest.”

When you call a pastor, be sure that his heart is not full of arrogance. Talk to those whom he has served with to ensure that the fruits of the Spirit have been displayed in his life. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are the fruits that should be very prevalent. If not, be careful, because he may not have a relationship with the Lord. There are few, truly, God called pastors today. The wolf can slip into your church just as easily from the pulpit as he can from the pew.

Jesus said to teach in truth and love. Truth is important, but if there is no love, the truth is not in him. Without truth, the law, there is lawlessness, but Jesus said love is the most important aspect of the Christian life. When love is revealed in one’s life, truth is second nature. It is not required to be forced on those that have the love of Christ flowing out of them. If a pastor shows love, then he can accomplish much, but if a spirit of arrogance and strife is all you see, then rebuke him. If he does not repent and change his ways, then show him the door.

How much longer, oh Lord, will you allow the wolf to ravage your flock? Trinity, you are in the prayers of many Brothers and Sister across this country. May God bless you beyond measure.

chad a everson on Job Searches

He could very well be on the prowl, watch out! Do not let destruction just move from one church to another. Do your homework on prospective pastors. Some of these guys are wolves in sheep's clothing. Their calling is not of God. They seek out weak minded people to support their blasphemous cause.

Just do your research, Pastor Search Committees. Make these guys actually interview for their positions and hold them accountable when you do call them. Call their previous church and get the real story on why they left. A little bit of homework goes a long way in preventing the kind of destruction that this guy and his crew have been able to spread.

Stand firm on God's word and seek Him out, He will reveal His will to those who want to see it.
