The self-appointed, rogue, employee, board of trustees wants to avoid a trial so bad that they have asked Judge Dwight D. Jackson to ignore the ruling of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.
Was Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr., a member of the Board of Trustees in March 2009? This is the ONLY QUESTION that the court will answer. It’s not rocket science. Bishop Joel Peebles has numerous documents showing that he was a member of the board.
On June 20, 2014 the unelected self-appointed, board of 6 employees who are temporarily occupying the Jericho Landover, MD facility filed another motion for Summary judgment in the case that they filed against Bishop Joel Peebles and William Meadows 4 days after Apostle Betty died. This move by the 6 and their lawyers is astonishing, brazen and contemptuous on all levels.
A summary judgment is when a decision is made without a trial. “If a material fact is disputed by both sides, then the court is prohibited from granting a summary judgment. Thus, in opposing a summary judgment, it is not necessary to show that you win on the issue. It is only necessary that you show that a genuine as opposed to a frivolous, issue of fact exists.” To overcome a summary judgment you only need to prove that there is a disputed fact.
October 25, 2011, Judge Dwight Jackson granted the six employees a summary judgment against Bishop Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows. Bishop Joel and our board filed an appeal to the court of Special Appeals who ruled that “… “[T]he purpose of summary judgment is to determine whether there are facts in dispute that must be resolved through a more formal dispute resolution process, a trial on the merits. . . . It is not the purpose of summary judgment to resolve issues of material fact.”Md. 21 1, 229-30 (2003) (emphasis added)’Returning to the instant case, appellees, we conclude that the circuit court erred in granting motion for summary judgment because a genuine dispute of material fact exists as to whether appellant Peebles was a member of the Board. …. In concluding that appellant Peebles was not elected as a Board member, the circuit court engaged in fact-finding, which is not a function permitted of a trial court when making a determination on summary judgment …. Because a genuine dispute of material fact existed as to whether appellant Peebles was a member of the Board, we reverse summary judgment as to both appellants and remand for further Proceedings.”
In short, Judge Jackson wrongly granted the motion for summary judgment because there WAS a disputed fact as to whether or not Pastor Joel was a member of the Board of Trustees. It is not for a judge to decide issues of fact, that’s done by a jury. A jury is the only appropriate fact finders in a courtroom. The Court of Special Appeals reversed Judge Jackson decision. (The six employees are NOT the legal board) and sent it back (remand) to the lower court. The six employees then filed an appeal to the court of Appeals which is the highest court in Maryland who declined to hear the case.
The case is now back before Judge Dwight D. Jackson. The six employees are asking Judge Jackson to make the exact same ruling that the Court of Special Appeals said was done in error. The fact that the six employees and their lawyers think that they can manipulate a judge and get him to go against what a higher court (Court of Special Appeals) has ordered casts a bad light on the Prince Georges County judicial system. This shows the level of contempt that they have for the judicial system. These questions beg to be answered- Why are these so called Christians attempting to manipulate the legal system? Are they above the law? Why are they trying to avoid a jury? The world is watching.
Alma Denise Killen – Jericho church Secretary turned C.O.O. and Chairman of the Board of Thieves is the Boss of the New Hireling Jasmine Sculark. Wait until the new hireling clashes with that Jezebel Spirit on Alma Denise Killen.
If there was ever any doubt in anyone’s mind that this was in fact a hostile takeover, read Alma Denise’s 2014 testimony starting on page 161, she outlines the hostile takeover blueprint.
Beginning on Page 30, in her 2014 deposition Alma Denise Killen says that the Apostle was running the church up until the day she died. But in her 2011 deposition she said, because of Apostle’s condition she would not have asked her to make any major decisions during the last months of her life. If that was the case why did Alma Denise use an electronic signature as authorization on a bank signature card 5 days before Apostle Betty died and fax it to the bank, to get herself as the signer on the churches accounts???
This question begs to be answered, if Alma Denise signed her own name on the bank document and then used a digital signature for Apostle Betty name, then Apostle Betty could not access the account anymore because her signature would not match. Someone in cancer treatment and dying can’t have a perfect signature. Only Alma Denise’s signature would be a correct match to access funds.
On page 11, Alma Denise says: that she is familiar with apostle’s signature
On page 155-156, Alma Denise says: she did not sign things for Apostle Betty
On page 275 – 277, Alma Denise says: she did sign things for Apostle Betty and she had a stamp
On page 278, Alma Denise says: Apostle Betty ran the church until her last breath, if that was so, why would there be a need for Alma to sign Apostle’s Betty’s name.
In her 2011 deposition: Alma Denise recounts the day that she and the Janitor and Bookkeeper supposedly signed documents to become trustees. She said some people came in and signed their names and left. But in her 2014 deposition she states that there was a full board meeting, with opening prayer, minutes and everything. Alma is she lying now or were you lying then? Now!
Alma Denise Killen – withdrew $27,000.00 cash out of the churches bank account, then says she couldn’t remember what it was for.
See Alma Denise admit to paying her husband, a minister at the church Stewie Killen $1000.00 for preaching one Sunday. Can you say Nepotism!!
We Can’t MakeThis Stuff Up, That’s Why It Is So Hard for Some People To Believe!
The Six Ungodly, Self-appointed, Unelected, Rogue Board of Thieves have put another hireling in the middle of their bitter legal battle which they initiated four (4) Days after Apostle Betty Peebles died.
This time they have upped the ante. It has been reported that they are paying their new hireling Dr. Jasmine Sculark in the neighborhood of $300,000 per year to use her popularity to fill the seats. After all, having just 40 to 50 people worshipping in a building built to hold 10,000 people is ridiculous. The ministry built by Apostle Betty Peebles is currently meeting at two high schools under the leadership of her son Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr. and the true long time Board of Trustees. They are carrying forth the vision of the late Bishop James and Apostle Betty Peebles. Bishop Joel & Pastor Ylawnda Peebles are operating a mega church ministry out of two local high schools. The six, ungodly crooks have commandeered our building and our assets. That is why there are only about 50 people there each Sunday. They are desperate to get someone in there who can fill the seats to increase their declining numbers before they return to court and have to explain why they have decimated this ministry. Meanwhile, the ministry under Bishop Joel Peebles is growing and adding souls to the kingdom of God weekly. We presently have 4 active legal cases. These six employees are not the legal board (see State Court of Special Appeals and the State Supreme Court Decision) that will be decided by a jury. We are confident that we will prevail. To God Be All The Glory! Anything that this Rogue board has puts in place is not binding. Can you say Out of Order!!! Please read the attached letter to Bishop Joel Peebles with prophecy from Prophet Mario Maxwell. This was sent to Bishop Joel via Bishop Neil Ellis. Prophet Mario Maxwell prophesied 911 and the financial collapse. All of his prophecies have come to pass.
