Category Critique

What is the truth regarding these finances? I want to believe everything is OK, but why are so many people questioning it? I think a review by someone other than the charity should be involved. why are they not listed with or any other company that holds these organizations accountable? I won't give anymore until they show me something credible and not handed out by them without a credit not for profit auditor like I think it is a problem that they are not there already!

I wonder if The Lord's Child have got to the end of the call lists threatening people to try and scare them into submission. Every week I come in to listen to Gene and see this tv show and I feel like this man is pompous and acts like he is above the rest of us. Someone told me that the Lords child in sevierville, tn told them that the staff member calling said "God will not be mocked" and after reading all of this stuff online I believe him. But he thinks God is being mocked by bringing truth out? HA More like God is being mocked by the lord's child doing unethical things in His name. The only god they are protecting at the Lord's Child and the Gathering Family in sevierville is their own god Gene Wolfenbarger. What is funny is Gene always says you can't borrow another man's walk, and yet he seems to be following in Larry Jones footsteps nicely. I just pray that it won't take 30 years to have the truth come out about Gene:

What is Gene trying to hide by not showing where the tithes/offerings are being spent? Don't the supporters of The Gathering and The Lord's Child have the right to know? How is buying a $50,000 + vehicle being a good steward of the money which was donated to promote God's kingdom? It's easy for Gene to stand up front and say he is sacrificing when many of his meals, clothes, cars, gas, etc. are not paid for from his salary, but from tithes/offerings. I wonder what percent of the donations really go toward doing God's work rather than going towards Gene's luxuries? I'm not against the pastor being paid well, but there needs to be accountability. Does he not want the people to know that a lot of his assets do not even come out of his salary? What else is he trying to hide? I don't want to sacrifice so that he can do whatever he wants with my money whenever he wants!!! All I ask is that he show where the money is being spent so that people can decide for themselves if they want to continue to support this ministry.

I left the staff because it was not about kids, it is about money

I wish the truth would come out why are so many of the qualilty staff members suddenly missing-in-action. I can make inferences all day long. Wonder how long will Bobby put up his demeaning?

The Lord's Child is a slush fund for Gene Wolfenbarger. Do your research!

Please tell us where we can find some information about how ALL the money is used. I love to help kids be prepared for school, but I want to know that every one of the dollars I contribute goes to school children. I worked last August as a parker and you talk about a thankless job. Gene walked out of the church and it was like he was the Pope with all the staff running around him and explaining what was going on. He did NOT even acknowledge my presence. But I am not one of those that writes him a check for thousands of dollars or buys him a hundred dollar pen. And those facts came from his own sermons. So please tell us where we can see the financial report.

if you have donated any money then yes you are one that has bought him a hundred dollar pen. the financial report that you seek can be obtained by asking them for one. report back your experience.

We met Gene Wolfenbarger in 2000 when the gathering first began & served on his staff. Even back then, he bragged about all of his accomplishments as an evagelist--mainly how much money he made and how wealthy his wife's family was. He sent his associate pastor to our home to "inspect" it to see if it lived up to Gene's standards before he would "officially" allow us to serve with him. This man is all about the outward appearance and how much money you have in order to be a part of "his" church.

$100 pens, personal vehicles, expensive clothes all at the congregations expense. I cannot believe I was too blind to see.

I would like to know what happened to his mother. When we were at the Gathering, I think she helped "run" the place. Is she still a part of the church?
Jun 19 2010 04:45 AM
i don't know if she is now. she wasn't when i went there and Gene used to talk about how crazy she was. and then she came back and things REALLY got weird!

Does anyone know if Mike and Robin Nelson are still attending the Gathering? Mike was or is an usher usually for both services and Robin was or is one of the money counters. I did not see them at all during the spring and we went to both early and late services.

I was talking about the school supply give away to a few friends. One spoke up and said they knew a person who would not work the event this year. The person was asked by Gene to leave last August since they did not attend the church anymore. He said something derogatory about this person to their face.

you people should be ashamed of yourselves here on sniitch...period!!!!
Dec 06 2010 09:32 PM
Then why are YOU on Snitch???
Dec 13 2010 06:28 PM
I think Gene should be ashamed of himself. he always says 'where there is no vision, the people perish ...' but, if you read a more literal version of the verse it really meas 'when there is no fear of the lord the people cast off constraint ...'. But - I guess that when you teach The Bible like The Bible should be taught you can't raise alot of money by casting your own vision .....

Why are you on SNIITCH??? Damn, that was good!!!!!!
