June 2, 2013 WORSHIP SERVICE UPDATE:
Ever wonder what the Jericho City of Praise worship service under the leadership of the six UnGodly, Self-Appointed, Rogue Employees looks like one year after firing Pastor Joel and excommunicating the leaders & members? Well Saints wonder no more. This is what you get when the Janitor, the Bookkeeper and the church Secretary do a hostile take over of the things of God.
Below is a copy of an email recently sent to the UnGodly, Self-Appointed, Rogue 6.

Matthew 6:19-21 King James Version (KJV)
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
The 2nd Annual City of Praise – Praise In The Park
was held on Sunday June 9, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. This event was held outdoors at the Lake Arbor Golf Course in Mitchellvile, MD. This City of Praise event was well attended with a crowd in excess of 1500 members and visitors. The weather was great, God held back the rain and the heat and provided a glory cloud for us that day. Our surprise guests that day was “CoCo Brother” Cory Condrey & wife Joann Rosario Condrey. They have always been strong supporters of Pastor Joel and our ministry. Many members and their friends brought their tents, lawn chairs and grills and made a day of it in the park. The praise service was awesome, the after party was even better.
When God is in it, there is no limit.
Our praise was lead by Minister John Peebles, our MC was Comedian Kasaun Wilson, and our featured artist Outreach 24/7, Vashawn Mitchell and Anthony Brown were spectacular.

As we approach the one year anniversary of Pastor Joel’s firing and the excommunication of our long-term Board, leaders and members our story has garnered national attention. Roland Martin and TV One did a great segment on Washington Watch with Roland Martin about our Church and Pastor Joel. One point to note is that the church officials mentioned in this story are a group of employees and ex-employees lead by the janitor, church secretary and book-keeper. What’s really interesting is that there were no interviews or video footage from the six crooks. Why? Because they have less than 100 people there on Sundays and they are ashamed to let the world see how they have devastated the body of Christ. The six rogue employee crooks have turned Jericho into a “Rent-A-Center” because they can’t generate God’s Move on their own. Their website uses old footage from when the congregation was there and advertisements from functions held there by other congregations to make it look like there are a lot of people there. They recently started airing old sermon’s of Pastor Joel showing a large congregation trying to trick people into thinking that they are growing and that we came back. They even put out commercials on the TV begging people to come. Come to what? Sorry crooks, God ain’t having it. They have been uncovered.

Many have asked why we call ourselves The City of Praise. The best person to answer this question is the one who changed the name of the church from Jericho City of Praise to The City of Praise, Apostle Betty P. Peebles
After the death of Elder John Peebles, Apostle Betty said during a 2005 New Years sermon, that she was changing the name of the church from Jericho City of Praise to The City of Praise. So, why have these six self-appointed, unholy, ungodly, rogue crooks who say they are carrying out her wishes refuse to do this? They fought against it after she died, they refuse to change the signs, they refuse to support the name change. They claim that they are keeping with her vision. How? You be the judge as to who is actually carrying out Apostle’s vision.
The Legal Update on our two cases filed by the members against the Six Ungodly, Unholy, Self-Appointed, Rogue Crooks:
The Records Case:
- This is the case where the members have requested the financial records of the church. The 6 employees have repeatedly refused our request which is against the law.
- Our lawyers sent subpoenas to all of the banks. The crooks tried to block us from getting the bank records. On 3/7 we went to court and their attempt to block us was DENIED! VICTORY! GOD is in Control!
- Trial May 29th -30th
The Articles Case:
- This is the case that says that the 6 unelected, ungodly crooks were never elected as trustees by the congregation
- The motion to vacate that Judge Jackson allowed the six employees to file delayed our case 21/2 months. The new date is April 26th. This is clearly a stall tactic. This is the second motion on the same issue which was denied by another judge.
- These delay tactics have caused us to lose faith in the judicial system. Our faith is in God!
