Why Didn't Tasha Cobbs Show Up For The Woman of Gospel Event In Toronto Canada Last Night? Was It About The Money?

Reader, there are two sides to every story. People have heard one side and have become the judge, the jury, and the executioner. You cannot come to a conclusion just based off of one party allegedly telling the truth-that is nonsense. 


Anyhow rumors are being put forth on social media that Tasha Cobb refused to perform last night in Canada, because the venue hosting the event didn't have all her money.   What is in the dark, always comes to light. 



Church Leaders Are Trying To Block Charisse Gibert From Collecting On Her Late Husband's $2 Million Life-insurance Policy.

 
 
 

Reader good Monday morning to everyone, I 'm praying that everyone reading this post will have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

With the February death of Bishop Gibert four months ago has left his wife Charisse Gibert fighting Detroit World Outreach over house and control of church’s future.

When a pastor dies, some people in a congregation don’t know how a church is going to go on, so they find a new spiritual home or go looking at other churches,” Wilder said. The drop in membership has turned the mansion from a symbol of prosperity into a millstone. The church spends $380,000 a year on mortgage and maintenance costs. Detroit World Outreach can no longer afford the expense because church revenue has fallen by approximately $2 million since 2010 “and our weekly attendance has dropped significantly,” Wilder wrote in a court filing. “Selling the property would cut the debt of the church by close to 50 percent,” Wilder wrote.

  1. Moral of the story: Do not build a ministry off of the personality of an individual and their family. Problems can occur which will plague your church for years. With that being said, Charise Gibert should do what Riva Tims did and start her own ministry. For the pastors at DWO, find a pastor as soon as possible for the pastoral care of congregants. This controversy is a distraction from the mission of the church, which should be making disciples.

    1. Mr. Hopkins I agree Ms. Gibert should move on....I'm guessing she fighting for what rightful belongs to her kids.

    2. I once went to a particular church in a particular city. It was an OK church. The pastor made it clear during one church chit chat, that if he were to pass, he would expect his wife to move on. He said he had a proper policy in place for his wife and minor kids at the time. He made it clear he would not expect her to stay behind fighting for control.....

      Which begs the question. This whole idea of a man being a Pastor and his wife automatically being "Co-Pastor", is that even biblical, at least in every instance? Just asking folks.

    3. I would say in NO INSTANCE should the wife (or any family members) be co-pastors.

      Besides the obvious conflict of interest.
      (Example: If the vote on giving the pastor a raise, I am 99% sure the wife would be in favor) Churches shouldn't be run and led like it's YOUR family business.

      The fact that a pastor can't (or won't) take time to educate and groom someone OUTSIDE OF HIS FAMILY to help led The church shows his inability to truly led and speaks volumes to how insecure he is with his own power he has over the church.

      Having your wife as pastor makes for great church program covers, and Valentine's Day sermons
      BUT as for church structure, NO!!!

    4. @Cop -Amen brother Amen... This who wife co-pastor and this whole first lady elevation stuff has to stop.

  2. This is why local assemblies should reevaluate how they should take care of the pastor and his family.

    One more thing, please keep this blog theme, okay??? LOL!!!

    1. Anyway, looked at the video. Churches using the Police, or rather the Police allowing themselves to be used in these matters, seem to come under the category that got United Airlines in trouble.

  3. I took a look at the video and the police are in the wrong. This is a civil issue and they can't arrest her, especially in the sanctuary. This is sad...

  4. His death is very unfortunate. But The church (and the pastors family) could have avoided so many problems that many churches make from the start

    1: HOUSING
    If your pastor is getting a salary THERE SHOUL BE NO NEED TO BUY (or rent) him a place to live. He is a grown man. Let him find and budget FOR HIMSELF a place to live. The church isn't his Mama.

    2: PROSPERITY OVERLOAD!
    I know the prosperity churches love to show there opulence, BUT let's be reasonable. They couldn't find a nice home (one that doesn't take a entire city block) in the churches neighborhood. That's why the prosperity driven churches are doomed. They get greedy and try to show off for GAWD 🙄

    3: "PASTOR" centered church.
    If your church is centered around your charismatic, personality of the pastor, your church is in danger. It's top heavy. When all is needed is One scandal or (as heartless as it may seem) a death of a pastor to disable your church. It maybe time to restructure and focus on who you really want to worship. That's Exactly what happen to Jim & Tammy Baker, Paula White, and Juanita Bynum.
    After one scandal it brought down them and closed the churches they represented.

    1. Many congregations are killing their pastors making them work full-time jobs while also doing full-time pastoral ministry.

      While I agree a pastor doesn't need the church to purchase them mansion, I disagree in the church not taking care of the pastor at all.

      Delete
    2. You got a point. Many are so caught up in all the negative publicity given a lot of pastors, a lot well deserved. They react to make ill advised statements to say pastors should work. However, they are many good pastors who work as shepherds and teachers and counselors and administrators that require lots of sacrifice and time. If these type worked 40 hours a week or even part time, something to his call will go lacking. A workman IS worthy of His hire. We got to keep in mind some of the basic principles of the early New Testament church, and aspire to incorporate many of its practices.

  5. It's not the churches responsibility to take care of the pastor just as the pastor doesn't take care of the church. The church should not but a pastor a home not rent or lease them one while they have members whom do not own a home or living in a shelter or homeless. A pastor is human like any other person and shall hold a job like anyone else for his or her earthly purposes the work that they do in church is awarded by GOD and he pays well!!

    1. The average CEO, President, or any high level Executive of any major company receives free housing and transportation, I don't see anyone complaining about them.

    2. Thats the problem!!!

      Churches SHOULDN'T be run like companies trying to make money. They should be run like schools and they (pastors) are the teachers.

      Presidents of companies and CEO's are put in place for one purposes, TO MAKE MONEY.

      Pastors missions should be driven my the love of God and to teach His purpose.

      If you want to see which pastors have a heart for Teaching, give them a TEACHERS SALARY.

      Let him work, OFF THE CLOCK!! Like teachers.

      Use his OWN MONEY to buy his own suits and supplies, LIKE TEACHERS.

      And provide HIMSELF a place to live on a teachers salary LIKE TEACHERS.

      I am not saying there aren't hard working pastors out there who don't deserve honor.
      I just want to make a point that being a pastor SHOULDN'T be made to look like a glamorous career choice with the same perks of any other job.

      It maybe tough,
      Low paying,
      Unthankful,
      And
      The people you teach may not even appreciate you.
      But it will be worth it in the end,
      JUST LIKE A TEACHER!!!

    3. @Cop Teachers have off hours, retirement funds, tax write-offs, and many other perks that are not afforded to pastors. You're right pastoring is not about money or trying to make a glamorous career.

  6. Boy I tell ya. These pharisees are geeedy. They already kicked Pastor Gilbert out of the church, now they want her mansion and her late husbands life insurance policy. For the LOVE of money they shall fall! Everything they touch will crumble and never prosper.

    1. Well,

      This is an unfortunate situation. However, Gibert should have taken care of his own.

      "But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel." 1 Timothy 5:8

  7. THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD AND COP. YOU BOTH ARE CORRECT. I HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT SALVATION IS A LIFESTYLE NOT A CAREER. A PREACHER SOLE PURPOSE OF PREACHING SHOULD BE ABOUT WINNING SOULS TO GOD. SOME ARE CALLED SOME ARE CHOSEN SOME CALLED THEMSELVES
    JUST BECAUSE HER HUSBAND WAS THE PASTOR THAT DOESN'T MAKE HER NEXT IN LINE TO BE THE PASTOR. IF THE PEOPLE'S DON'T WANT YOU .THEN YOU SHE WON'T BE SUCCESSFUL THERE CAUSE WON'T BE NOBODY THERE BUT HER AND HER FAMILY. IT WAS UP TO HER HUSBAND TO PROVIDE FOR HER NOT THE CHURCH. DID HE HAVE A WILL ? DID HE TAKE THE INSURANCE POLICY OUT SPECIFICALLY FOR THE PURPOSE THAT IF ANYTHING HAPPEN TO HIM THE CHURCH WOULD BE PAID FOR ? IF THE HOME SHE IS STAYING IN BELONGS TO THE CHURCH AND IT IS CONSIDERED THE CHURCH PROPERTIES THEN SHE KNOWS THAT SHE DOESN'T OWN THE HOME. IT'S NOT THE CHURCH FAULT THAT SHE CHOSE NOT TO WORK BUT TO BE IN MINISTRY FULL TIME. THAT WAS A DECESION BETWEEN HER AND HER HUSBAND. IF SHE TRULY BELIEVES THAT GOD HAS CALLED HER INTO MINISTRY. THEN MOVE ON AND PRAY AND FAST AND GOD FOR DIRECTIONS FOR THE NEXT STEP IN HER LIFE. WHAT'S BEST FOR HER AND HER FAMILY

  8. Bishop Ben was a man of integrity. Everytime I stepped into Dwo I felt the power and annointing of the Holy Spirit. That is what kept me coming and that is what left when they threw the rest of the Giberts out. All the money in the world cant buy the annointing that was in that house. It never was about a man, Bishop was always about the business of The Man (God our Father) period. #Forward
