Legal Update: On the members Records Case and the Articles Case

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!

Judge allows the six Self-Appointed Rogue employees to file a motion which delayed the Ex-Parte hearing for two weeks

Pastor Joel speaks to a reporter outside of the court-house today after leaving Judge Dwight Jackson’s courtroom, where the six unelected, self-appointed, rogue board members delayed the Ex-Parte hearing scheduled for today for two weeks.

The Supreme Court of Maryland, The Maryland Court of Appeals has spoken!

Attention City of Praise Members:


       Hot off Of Press!!

The Maryland Court of Appeals (a seven judge panel), agreed with the decision from the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.


          Rogues Denied!!

Hot Off the Press

On October 26, 2012  not long after the Maryland Court of Special Appeals reversed the decision of the lower court. The Six Self-Appointed Rogue employees filed an appeal to the Supreme Court in Maryland.  Well the Ungodly, Unholy six employees kept telling their supporters that Pastor Joel and Chairman Meadows did not win anything with the court of special appeals decision, lol.   If that were true, then why did they immediately file an appeal??
They attempted to tie up this case in the court system for another 4-5 years by filing an appeal.    But God!!
On Tuesday January 22, 2013, the Maryland Court of Appeals, the supreme court in Maryland has agreed with the Maryland Court of Special Appeals and has denied the Petition for Writ of Certiorari entered by the six Self-Appointed, Rogue employees.  This means that the Court of Appeals of Maryland (the highest court) will not even entertain the thought of looking at their case.  The court said that they saw no issue that would make them think an error occurred when the Court of Special Appeals overruled Judge Dwight Jackson. It said that he was wrong in giving the six Self-Appointed Rogue employees their summary judgment. They agreed that there was sufficient evidence to show that Pastor Joel was in fact a member of the Board of Trustees all the time.
Recap:  So now you have the two highest courts in the State of Maryland, more than ten Honorable Judges stating that they do not see any reason why there should have been a Summary Judgment against Pastor Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows. 

There is too much evidence that support Pastor Joel!

More examples showing why the City of Praise Church members are not going back into our building just yet.

Remember: Who is the Pastor of Jericho City of Praise?  Who is the Pastor of the City of Praise Family Church?  It is Pastor

Joel Peebles!!   He served as one of the only two Assist Pastors in the history of the church. He also preached for over 20 years in the church.    

Remember: That the Six rogue self-appointed employees saw an opportunity to seize control over financial assets one of the largest churches on the east coast. They did so by falsely claiming to be the duly elected board of the church. They were never, ever elected by the church members. Now they will do anything to try and remain in the building.  Watch the videos !!

***  W e are the People of Praise and we approved this message ***

Pray with us let the truth be known.

We have not asked for their help. The members of the City of Praise church have not asked Michael Freeman to get involved in our business. Yet he has interfered again. His back door plan has been exposed to get the Freeman’s coveted prize, the Jericho City of Praise Church and Buildings. Please see the link below for the RED HOT inconvenient Truth about it.
