Abigale Cartwright (ucgcurrent crisis) has listed the following leaders (see below) from UCG that have been suspended in the last few days and through the last year. It looks like United is not so 'united' as they all claim.
The convoluted background of United's existence started in the 360/380/390 apartments on the Pasadena campus.
It was a group of men that gathered with Kubik, Webber and others to plot their separation from WCG. They had refused to follow in the changes in doctrine that WCG was establishing. They knew their jobs, their free cars, their homes, their standard of living, paid feast travel, their $10,000.00 + year-end bonuses, etc was about to change if they did not start toeing the line. This process went on for several months. All the time they had these little meetings they continued to stay on the salary of WCG. Money was their first priority, plain and simple. They certainly were NOT martyrs for the truth as so many claimed they were.
Those of us who lived in the Pasadena area also saw them in action as they 'served' the church in their 'ministerial' duties. These men were FAAAAAAAR from being ministerial and pastoral in their actions. Conceited, self-serving
UCG recently removed all the regional pastors from their duties:
Excerpt from Kubik letter to ministry: October 13 Letter to Ministry
When United began in 1995, not only was the Regional Pastor system put in place, but a Ministerial Services team was added. It was recognized that this was perhaps too much structure, but we hoped that the Church would “grow into” this structure.
But, today, 15 years later, we have not grown. In fact, we have fewer full-time pastors than we did in the beginning , yet we have continued with this top-heavy structure. It served a much-needed function in its first years by helping write some of the Ministerial Services policies that are now more or less complete and available to the ministry on disk or in the notebook binder.
With the recent change of Presidency and Ministerial Services Operation Manager, it is a good time to reevaluate the Regional Pastor structure. We do not need ten RPs plus a ministerial team to oversee an experienced ministry totaling about 90 full-time pastors and 300 local church elders.
We believe that it is the right time to restructure the management levels within Ministerial Services.
We have decided to discontinue the regional pastor structure as it currently stands. A newly appointed ministerial team will function as regional pastors and perform many of the duties that the former RPs carried out. They will be actively involved in most aspects of current RP duties. Policies that related to the regional pastors will not be changed; they will be fulfilled by the Ministerial Services team who will now act as the new Regional Pastors.
Since United has experienced a downturn in revenue, this leaner management will afford savings as well. We thank all of you for your ministerial support functions over the years. This change will be effective Friday, October 15.
In Christ’s service,
