Since Dave Pack started building his most superfantabulous Church of God ever, he constantly talks about how united his members and leadership are. The problem is, like the rest of the Churches of God, Pack is loosing ministers and members every time he opens his mouth.
You know things are bad in Wadsworth when Pack has to fire his own daughter! Now he has alienated not only his boys, but now his daughter!
I just heard from a RCG source that Dave fired his number two man Kevin Denee and his own daughter that's married to Kevin. (It's also being said that they both resigned, so waiting for verification)Kevin was the Director of Operations at Dave Pack's superfantabulous compound in Wadsworth, located between the Giant Eagle and the smog belching freeway.
In March of 2012, Dave Pack promoted Denee to be Dave's right hand man as the Executive Director of the RCG. He was Dave's hand picked leader "born for the job" and "absolutely trained to carry out these duties." That train has obviously crashed and burned! Dave failed to see this coming!
You have or soon will hear more about the following in a sermon to be played in all congregations on March 10. There has been a fairly significant restructuring in the Work at Headquarters. In order to free up my time to carry out my commission further (from the same need for day-to-day, hands-on administrative involvement), Mr. Kevin Denee will now serve under me as the Executive Director ofOperations of the Church and its Work. Mr. William Behrer will remain in the Executive Office and assist him in addition to continuing with 11 departments (for now) still under him. (He recently had 20 departments, we took away 11, but added two more back for now.) Because Mr. James Turck will be returning to Headquarters on April 1 to assist with the ever-increasing Church Administration workload, Mr. Denee will be able to continue as Director of Church Administration without having to spend the same amount of time. Every member of the Advisory Council of Elders agreed that this was the best way to structure Headquarters moving forward, and it will give me more time to fulfill my commission. With no exceptions, they all felt that Mr. Denee was "born to the job." He has been in the office for over nine years, and is absolutely trained and able to carry out these duties. A number of other appointments have been made, with others to occur over the months to come. All of this is in preparation for the Work being able to greatly expand as I will describe momentarily. RCG Member/Co-worker letterKevin Denee's fame has extended far beyond the hyperbole of the RCG. He became the laughing stock of the internet when he said that RCG youth and members should not do blogging.
Here's a truly moronic article from the Restored Church of God Ambassador Youth site. The author, Kevin D. Denee, seems to think it's OK for him to use the Web to express his opinion, but other people -- both children and adults -- should not. Nearly every sentence in this schoolmarmish screed is funny. Restored Church of God says blogging is wrong (excluding their own blog, natch)Kevin wrote:
Let me emphasize that no one — including adults — should have a blog or personal website....
The Internet—and more specifically blogs—has enabled everyone to have a voice on any matter. Now everyone’s thoughts are “published” for all to see. Whether or not it is effective, as soon as something is posted the person has a larger voice. It often makes the blogger feel good or makes him feel as if his opinion counts—when it is mostly mindless blather!
Blogs can be summed up as people talking about almost anything, but really nothing. There is no purpose to much of the contents — no direction. [...] The contents of blogs can often best be described as trash and the expression of shallowness. What is deemed as a higher level of communication is simply a mindless form of entertainment.This is what he said youth and members should be doing instead of blogging:
Some questions naturally arise: “Can I have a photo gallery?” For example, maybe you visited an exotic country and want to share your photos with close friends. This can be done, but certain guidelines apply. Of course, there should never be any inappropriate pictures (again, be careful of the appearance of evil); it should be private and password protected, and only shown to family and closest friends. Tis
Take extra care if messaging or “chatting” on the Sabbath. It should be done in moderation, as this is a time to draw close to God. Do not drift into worldly topics. Be aware of a conversation’s direction, and steer it back into Sabbath-appropriate subjects if necessary. You could discuss last week’s sermon, upcoming Holy Days, changes in world events, announcements about growth in the Church, etc. Challenge yourself! During the week, be mindful of things you may want to discuss with your friends (online or at services). Then when the Sabbath arrives you will have a long list of items to discuss. A great underlying principle of appropriate IM subjects is this: “Would I feel comfortable discussing this subject with my parents? What about with God?”
