Turning the tide: As traditional churches see interest wane, upstarts draw in young people

great job addressing something very different than the topic of greed or generosity of a church?? I wasnt making any comments on the image of the church.
That being said, justin is one of the most sincere guys i know of. He genuinely is here to help lawrence Kansas. regardless of whether or not you agree with the personal image of the church, or if youre even religious at all, i dont think any ethical member of a community should be so opposed to a church that is constantly giving to oorganizations that help single moms and people who need health care assistance. honestly.

Turning the tide: As traditional churches see interest wane, upstarts draw in young people

Phoggyjay,
please dont make personal statements about people based on loose generalizations. I have gone to velocity for a while now. They are incredibly generous with their money. They give a really huge portion of their income to others; charities, other small churches, community organizations, etc. Mr. Jenkins is also a humble guy, Im not sure if he still is but he was working another job outside of velocity to help pay bills, and the jenkins dont live in any sort of mansion by any means. where else do you think all this money would be going, if not to the jenkins?? No one else is paid staff. The musicians seem to bring all of their own gear, minus the PA which comes with the art center. The church provides coffee and breakfast for its volunteers every week, but thats not a huge expense. I really dont think you can make such a harsh judgment when youve clearly never met justin or been to velocity.
