DC Superior Court Judge Rules: Bishop Joel Peebles Vindicated, Regains Control of the Jericho Landover Campus

 jericho front2    July 8, 2015

DC Superior Court Judge Stewart Nash ruled in favor of Bishop Joel R. Peebles and the original Board Of Trustees. The decision by  Judge Nash removes the six employee/church  members from having any control over the church and no access to church funds. The judge found that this group of six people illegally seized control through a well devised hostile takeover, during the prolonged illness of the founder and Apostle Betty Peebles. The ruling showed that there was an abundance of evidence that supported Bishop Joel Peebles claim that he was a member of the Board of Trustees at the time when these six bishoppeople secretly seized control . The trial uncovered evidence that showed that long time board members Chairman William Meadows and Anne Wesley were in fact tricked into signing documents that were later used to illegally remove them from the Board of Trustees. The ruling also acknowledges that Dorothy Williams (one of the six conspirators and a part of the original board) personally enriched herself and was found to not be credible. Judge Nash’s order reinstates the surviving members of the original Board of trustees which consist of Bishop Joel R. Peebles, Elder William Meadows and defendant Dorothy Williams.

Order Finding of Facts and Conclusion of Law entered on docket, signed by Judge Nash and e-filed, e-served on parties of record on 7/7/15

Judgment is GRANTED in favor of the plaintiffs, to wit: the Court hereby DECLARES that Resolution 1-09 of the Jericho DC Board of Trustees, which purported to change the membership of the Board of Trustees, is invalid; and DECLARES that the current Board of Trustees for Jericho DC shall consist of the surviving members of the Board of Trustees that existed prior to the invalidated Resolution 1-09, those members being: William A. Meadows; Dorothy L. Williams, and Joel R. Peebles and DECLARES that actions taken by defendants after March 15, 2009, acting as the purported Board of Trustees of Jericho DC, under the color of resolution 1-09, including the purported approval of the merger of Jericho DC into Jericho MD, are invalid; and the Court hereby ORDERS THAT DEFENDANTS REFRAIN FROM EXERCISING OWNERSHIP OR CONTROL OVER ANY CORPORATE ASSETS OF JERICHO  MARYLAND FORMERLY BELONGING TO, OR DERIVED FROM, THE CORPORATED ASSETS OF JERICHO DC, and ORDERS that plaintiffs are reinstated as members of the church pending a review of their membership status by the validly-constituted Board of Trustees of Jericho DC.  See press release from City of Praise FM

The City Of Praise Family Ministries – Coming Out of the Wilderness

We Were Down But Not Out! Now We’re Coming Out!

forest coming out 1a

As we went through our wilderness journey that began in 2012, we noticed that the hand of God covered us daily.  We have been under the glory cloud. God allowed the sun to shine through at times bathing us with light and discernment, lifting the fog and bringing clarity to our purpose and mission.  We were able to shake off dead weight and traditions, grow in unity and learn the power of love, forgiveness & mercy.

The spirit of God  has been with us as we dwelled in the secret place of the most high which is the word of God.   We remained under his shadow and canopy of protection for the past 3 + years and now our journey is coming to an end. The City of Praise Saints can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. We will finally be heard in court and there will soon be Validation, Restoration, Vindication and for some Incarceration.

Recently Discovered Video Showing A Prophecy by Dr. Myles Munroe over Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr.

Dr. Myles Munroe

myles-munroe 2

Dr. Myles Monroe told Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr. 23 years ago the difficulties that he was to endure and the outcome. This video is from a 1992 revival service where Dr. Myles Munroe was the guest speaker at Jericho Baptist Church on Douglas St in N.E. Washington, DC. Dr. Munroe prophesied over Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr.  He first spoke to him off mic and said to him that, “the enemy would put obstacles in your way but you should not worry.  You’ll have the victory through them all. You will go through great pain and a difficult season.  But at the end you will recover everything.”   Dr. Munroe then shouted for him to receive it.  Note that the information was difficult for Bishop Joel to receive. Also notice in the video that after Dr. Myles Monroe laid hands on Bishop Joel that his father the late Bishop James Peebles Sr. knelt down at his son’s feet along with Dr. Myles Munroe’s armor bearer. The prophecy that he gave on mic at the end of the video is powerful.

Bishop Joby Brady and the Red Hot Inconvenient Truth about the hostile takeover attempt

On Sunday September 22, 2013 Pastor Joby Brady from the Potter’s House North in Dallas, Texas came to the City of Praise church to bring us a word.

 Wow!  We were not expecting this.  What a high praise.

     ** Click this picture to begin watching the video**

 Bishop Brady first broke it down, he exposed the Red Hot Inconvenient Truths about the hostile takeover of our church, the firing, the lying, the cover up and the motives of those behind it.  The Truth will set you free.  

Bishop Brady also proclaimed to the City of Praise Church that our pastor has an Apostolic anointing on him and from this day forward he will be called Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr.

Now run and tell that!

Jericho City of Praise: A 10,000 seat sanctuary with 40 People

               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.   

To:  Clarence Jackson, Dorothy Williams, Denise Killen,

         Clifford Boswell, Gloria MaGruder, Linda Pyles

The link below shows a clip of your service from June 2, 2013. The sanctuary at Jericho City of Praise seats 10,000 people, there are 40 people in the building. This is morally reprehensible and a reflection of your inability to run, build or grow a church. Unless God himself ordains it no one will follow Barbara Colvin-Etheridge, Rodney Walker or any other hireling.
Can you six still claim that this is what Apostle Betty Peebles wanted.  Her vision was to have a 10,000 seat church for 40 people. It’s ok to admit you are wrong and repent .
God grows whatever he sanctions. We have been at Roosevelt High School and run out of space. We are at Forestville High School and in the first week exceeded your congregation for a month combined. The reason is simple we are only concerned about people not going to hell for eternity and not our egos or playing church. We are not concerned about growing a mega church. Lives are at stake for eternity and you all want to play church, fatten your own pocketbooks and use man-made efforts to grow something that is clearly dead, dying and defunct. it is time to admit you are wrong and do what is right.
The entire community should be outraged to see what has transpired. The Jericho City of Praise now has 40 people in the building because you six want to utilize the church to enrich yourselves personally. Shame on you.
Jericho June 2, 2013 4 of 4
Note:
         The hostile takeover of Jericho by the Six UnGodly, Self-Appointed, Rogue employees has temporarily given them millions of dollars worth of property and millions of dollars in the bank. These six don’t care if the church grows or not, they are not in danger of losing any property because everything is paid in full, the church is not dependent on tithes & offerings to pay the bills.  All they have to do is pay the bills because they have plenty of money. The “cash only” parking for the redskins stadium along with the monthly rent taken in at the Jericho warehouse park provides ample ‘Mad Money’ for them. Michael Freeman can’t claim he is helping out this church because Jericho has more money than his ministry.

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

The Uncut Deposition of Alma Denise Killen

                                                                             

       

 

The testimony of Alma Denise Killen, leader of the six rogue employees from the Jericho Baptist Church Ministry suing Pastor Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows is now up for viewing.  Alma Denise Killen is very cunning and clever, she has recently received three Pinnocchio awards for this performance.   Get some popcorn and hold on to your seat.
