5 former leaders of City Harvest Church start their sentences today after misappropriating millions in church funds

SINGAPORE – City Harvest Church (CHC) founder Kong Hee was the first of five church leaders convicted of misappropriating millions from the church’s funds to arrive at the State Courts on Friday (April 21) to surrender himself and begin his jail term.

Kong, 52, was flanked by two men as he entered the State Courts building at around 8.30am as it rained outside. He will be jailed for 3½ years, the longest sentence of the convicted church leaders.

Youth Pastor arrested for sexual misconduct with 14-year-old girl

Youth Pastor arrested for sexual misconduct with 14-year-old girl

According to Lyle, Kelley is married with three children of his own and was a volunteer for five years before the church hired him in 2015.

“We’re simultaneously ministering to the victim and her family also to the wife of the accused,” Lyle said.

Gwinnett Police urge parents whose children attend New Bridge to talk to them about their interactions with Kelley to determine whether there may have been other inappropriate relationships.

“Our fear in law enforcement is that when someone uses their position in this particular type of capacity is that there are additional victims that are unknown,” said Cpl. Washington. “It’s very disturbing when someone would use their position as a pastor and also as a counselor to exploit a young child sexually.” Read more…

A COMMUNITY IN TURMOIL

Rocco Di Stefano was in good standing at his church. But when he sold investment certificates to congregation members it all went wrong and then the money was gone
Don MacDonald

Wednesday, December 05, 2007

The atmosphere was tense in the boardroom of the Fabre St. Pentecostal Church on a sultry night in July 2006 as the church’s pastor called a meeting of almost 20 congregation members to order.
Pastor David Mortelliti had convened the meeting as part of his efforts to shepherd his congregation through one of the worst crises in its 80-year history. Anger in the room was such that Mortelliti felt the need to appeal for calm at the outset.
At the other end of a large oval conference table from the portly, mustachioed pastor sat Rocco Di Stefano, a longtime congregation member and investment adviser to the families represented around the table.
By the count of one of the participants, those families were facing losses of at least $1.5 million on investment notes recommended to them by Di Stefano. Several were senior citizens – working-class Italian immigrants – trying to come to grips with the prospect of losing much of their life savings.
The investments were in unregistered certificates carrying high interest rates that were issued by obscure private companies.
By the time of the 2006 meeting, Di Stefano’s role in their sale to church members had become a source of rancour in the congregation, a part of the Canadian Assemblies of God, formerly the Italian Pentecostal Church of Canada.
The bad feelings were made worse because Di Stefano had been a member of the tightly knit evangelical Protestant congregation since his childhood.
What’s more, he had been a Pentecostal pastor who had headed his own congregation in Windsor, Ont., before returning to Montreal in the early 1990s.

Iran: Church retreat centre confiscated for being founded by CIA

Iran: Church retreat centre confiscated for being founded by CIA

cia-iran«The Iranian government has assumed control of church-owned retreat center, accusing the church of being funded by the US government and the CIA.
The retreat center in Karaj has been owned by the Council of Assemblies of God (AoG) Churches in Iran since the early 1970s. The AoG Church in Iran was established prior to the 1979 Revolution; it is not organizationally affiliated with the AoG denomination in the US.
One reason for the confiscation seems to have been a misunderstanding relating to the former name of the affiliated Central AoG Church in Tehran, which used to be known as “Philadelphia”: a name commonly used all over the Christian world, and not necessarily linked to the city in the US, or to any other appearance of the same name anywhere else in the world.
In a statement, the General Superintendent of the AoG said: “The 68 million worldwide adherents of The General Council of the Assemblies of God wish to express dismay at the recent confiscation of campground and garden property from the Iran Assemblies of God. We hereby request the return of the property to its legal owner.”»

The Iranian government has assumed control of a church-owned retreat centre, accusing the church of being funded by the US government and the CIA.
The government said the retreat centre in Karaj, a city just west of Tehran, belonged to an organisation “funded by the US through the CIA spy agency to infiltrate the Islamic world, and particularly Iran, by conducting evangelistic activities”.
Article 18, a London-based NGO, says the move represents a “renewed phase” in the government’s crackdown on Protestant churches, “with intensifying efforts to confiscate remaining properties [that] belong to Evangelical churches”.
This is “the latest action in an intensified campaign by the regime aimed at curbing the growth of Christianity in Iran, particularly among former Muslims,” Article 18 reports. “Over the last few years, the Iranian government has begun taking possession of remaining properties belonging to official Protestant churches.”
“The ultimate goal of the campaign,” former church leaders told Article 18, “is to render Protestant and Evangelical churches, with more than 630 million adherents worldwide, as an outsider cult with no official recognition in Iran.”
Article 18’s Mansour Borji told the BBC yesterday (11 Dec.) that, after the government linked the Church with the CIA, “every church leader, every church member [will be] quite frightened because of the prospects of prison and being labelled as collaborators with the ‘enemy’”.
Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians are “protected religious minorities” under Iran’s constitution, but Article 18 says Iran’s “constitutional theocracy discriminates against its citizens on the basis of religion”. Traditionally, Iran’s Christian minority was comprised of ethnic minorities of Armenian and Assyrian descent, but Article 18 says an increase in Iranian nationals converting to Christianity has been seen as a “threat to the nation’s security”.
