You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Please be more kind to past members of your flock on this site. What people write of their experiences is not necessarily a personal attack on your parents or yourself.
As the daughter of the pastor you may or may not have been shielded from the experiences of the rank-and-file members.
This is a safe-zone for people to express themselves and their experiences. This site is closely moderatered (which is a good thing) and slanderous unfounded charges against an organization are not tolerated anymore than bullying against ex-members from group-members or group supporters ('apologists') attempting to silence dissent.
In my opinion, you came on a little strong on the ex-members and I would beg you to let them feel safe to voice their opinions. No organization can boast 100% in customer satisfaction.
I am interested in your awaited response to rrmoderator, however, in your answers to his queries:
QUOTE FROM RRMODERATOR:
What safeguards exist at New Harvest Christian Fellowship (NHCF) in Norwalk, CA?
Is there a democratically elected board, which serve fixed terms, that can discipline and if necessary fire the pastor?
Is there an independently audited financial statement that discloses in detail all the church finances, such as salaries, compensation and all expenses paid out from church funds?
Are such safeguards within the church bylaws?
Is there any denominational or a church federation that provides oversight?
Thank you in advance for your timely response...
