When David Hulme's personalty cult imploded this past December, several of his ministers formed a new "church" along with Brian Orchard. Stephen Elliot and Bob Rodzaj were two men who plotted behind the scenes in Hulme's group to start this new "church." Then as soon as they jumped ship with Orchard, they started plotting again. This time they were negotiating with Rod Meredith to remain as ministers and still get paid. Surprisingly, Meredith welcomed them in with open arms and did not give these two a "grace" period to see how they fit in theologically. Many LCG members are not happy with this, including some ministers!
As a clarification to a previous announcement, Mr. Stephen Elliott will become the Associate Pastor, under Dr. Jeffrey Fall, of congregations in southern California as well as Las Vegas. Mr. Bob Rodzaj will become the Associate Pastor, under Mr. Rodger Bardo, of congregations in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. Mr. Gary Stein will pastor the Dallas, Abilene and Midland, Texas, congregations.
