On Sunday September 7, 2014 Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bishop Alfred Owens and Pastor John Jenkins gathered at the Jericho city of Praise for the installation of their newest hireling Jasmin Sculark.
The installation of the 3rd hireling brought in by the illegitimate board of trustees now at Jericho was a ploy by the six to try to legitimize their church and board and make Dr. Jazz the front man for their illegal organization. The six self-appointed employee board were so desperate to get someone to fill the seats that they offered Dr. Jazz the job with a reported salary in the neighborhood of $300,000 a year without having seen a resume, application, candidates letter. Jazz stated during the installation “I did not submit a resume, candidates letter, had never done scripture, or prayed in the church. The first time I stepped in the pulpit was as Pastor Select.” She was not voted in by the members of Jericho because the 6 trustees are the only voting members. Despite bringing in local mega-church pastors John Jenkins, Bishop and Co-Pastor Susie Owens and the heavy hitter T.D. Jakes it was evidently clear by the turn out yesterday that the DMV was not feeling the hype nor the smoke and mirrors and was not buying what they were selling. It is reported that it cost approximately $70 to $80,000.00 to bring in T.D. Jakes to hype up an event. Having in attendance two local mega-Pastors, plus members from the Shilow Baptist Church York, PA, plus people from Trinidad, other local pastors who want to be in Jake’s shadow, along with the regular TD takes groupies, numerous PR firms, TV Ads, Radio Ads, numerous online invitations for everybody & anybody plus the TD Jakes name brand, could not fill up the church building.
The takeaways here:
1. Educated Christians in the DMV with discernment saw right thru this PR move. 2. People in the DMV know that the six (6) supposed board members (Dr. Jazz’s bosses) reek with the stench of foul play and financial impropriety. 3. Discerning Christians know that – Doing the right thing in the wrong season is still wrong. 4. In the DMV you can’t force feed discerning Christians the same old soup and expect them to swallow it. 5. We in the DMV have seen this play before, look up the Paula White appointment.
** ALL THE KINGS HORSES AND ALL THE KINGS MEN, COULDN’T FILL JERICHO TO THE TOP AGAIN **
Now the show is over and Jericho is still facing four (4) active legal cases that will return the church and it’s assets to the people whose tithes and offerings built it and nurtured it.
The DMV did not show up as expected to support Dr. Jasmin Sculark’s installation. Dispite a full court press Public relations campaign and media blitz which included, TV. radio, Newspapers, digital magazine, social media.
