Fix it Jesus: Pastor Spencer T Ellis Controversial "No Pimpin Straight Preaching Billboard!"
Readers, a Detroit pastor has utilized an unusual form of advertising to draw more people into his church, by way of a controversial billboard. The billboard is getting a lot of attention, but some question if it is the right kind of attention. Pastor Spencer T Ellis, the pastor of the Citadel of Praise church, bought space on the billboard that have gotten the attention of the community. The large sign shows a picture of a “pimped-out” preacher holding a handful of cash and wearing gold chains around his neck.
The pimp has a giant no symbol around him and a message written in large bold letters that says, “No Pimpin’! Straight Preachin’!” The billboard, located on a roadside at Grand River near the Southfield freeway, is meant as a shot against the reality television show, “Preachers of Detroit.” Ellis believes that the preachers on the show are drawing more attention to themselves than to what truly matters.
