I just joined after months of observation here in regards to CFM. I applaud you for exposing them as you do.
I agree Foursquare needs to do something about Rob Scribner. Either he and his Lighthouse church are Foursquare or he is part of Wayman Mitchell's CFM churches. I do not see how he and that church can possibly be BOTH! Yet, he and the church are both listed on Foursquare's database of churches and pastors and at the same time they are listed on CFM's webpage which lists all churches and pastors in Mitchell's camp.
Over two decades have passed since Mitchell was ordered by Foursquare to shape up or ship out and he chose the latter taking several Foursquare churches and their pastors with him as nulceus that made up his core organization.
I know for certain that Foursquare leaders who were in place at the time he was coming up in ministry in their ranks and those who were his superiors at the time he departed rue the day they allowed him to do the things he did. Jack W Hayford is surely aware of all of these things and is no stranger to Mitchell or his antics, tactics and ministry distinctives which have long set him apart from Foursquare.
Anyone and everyone who has an interest in Foursquare should contact Hayford as well as Scribner's Regional Supervisor Rickey Trimble at the Regional Offices at the Pacific Administrative Resource Center [www.foursquare.org
] and his District Supervisor Jack Hamilton at the District Offices of LA North Coast District [www.foursquare.org
] and let them know exactly how important it is that this situation is rectified. I personally know how some of these Supervisors from Regional and District can let a matter lay around on their desk, so it's my advice from past experience I have had to carbon copy any and all contacts with them so that all three of them get the same email or snail mail that is sent.
For Foursquare not to address this matter is certainly telling considering the history they have with Mitchell. He's been a black eye on their denomination in more ways than one, and for more than just the last 25 years. They should have dealt with him at least a decade before they finally did in the 80's when he pulled out and started his CFM org. For Foursquare to continue to allow him to influence their churches and pastors is incomprehensible!
I know Foursquare has no problem pulling a pastors papers when wrong doing has been proven or when Foursquare by-laws aren't followed to the letter. Why are they allowing this? Why did they allow Mitchell to be a pain in the neck for so long before they finally put some teeth in their by-laws? They should have jumped on him like Grant took Vicksburg as soon as he started acting up.
