Yes, 20 years of marriage, and were still TOGETHER. Sorry Denis, not this time!
This picture was taken back in probably 93′ @ the NTCC serviceman’s home in Killeen, TX. Man, I really miss the days when young Christians still had their innocence, and a smile was an expression which came from deep within the heart formed by their marital bliss and the joy of serving the Lord. What happened to that? It truly saddens my heart to see men and women in their early 20′s so full of hate, and confusion. What ever happened to seeing someone smile after feeling the joy radiating from others, especially new Converts; that’s priceless. I just can’t seem to find it in any of the churches anymore. This is what a young, vibrant Christian couple should look like; just full of joy, and that’s we were, and that’s what you should be.
APRIL 5 2014 MARKS OUR TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF LEAVING HOPCC. PRAISE THE LORD WE ARE STILL TOGETHER, CHRISTIANS, BLESSED, AND IN OUR RIGHT MIND. HERE’S THE PROOF THAT GOD STILL DELIVERS AND KEEPS HIS PEOPLE.
BREAK THE CHAINS
My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, it’s time to “Break those chains” that have bound you for so very long. I’m not talking about the chains of sin, shame and greed, but the chains of religion, complacency and doubt.
HOPCC has made it very clear that they will do whatever it takes to keep members, gagged, blindfolded, and unaware of their surroundings and void of any hope outside of “Their church.” I am pleading with you to take your own selves into consideration for once in your life (not your contacts, not your pastor, not your church), and do what is right for your family before it’s too late.
As Christians, we believe that it is always the right thing to do when it comes to “Giving,” but when will you see that you have given “ENOUGH”….of yourself and your family to a cause that cares nothing of your livelihood, wellbeing, finances, and personal endeavors?
I admonish you to “Rise up” to the occasion, and take back what was stolen from you (peace, hope, joy, newness and the truth both secretly, unknowingly and flat out openly).
Sincerely, Rev. P.A. Bowers
So, you thought I was out the game? THINK AGAIN! Your lies, cover-ups, plots, schemes, and scams, that left my wife and I for dead. I have to hand it to you, the way that you did it made everyone think that we were horrible, unthankful, and inconsiderate people, who just walked away from the ministry to go indulge in sin. You thought that I was just going to lay down and say nothing just like the countless others that you’ve chased off, and made to look like heathens in front of your cronies. But now I KNOW THE TRUTH why so many left; you chased them off. You may have pulled a fast one and you may have the people thinking indifferently toward us, but rest assure, the things that are hidden from man’s eyes, are surely not hidden from God. And now the world will know the truth, the truth about Denis, (AKA Deity Denis) and his hoard of “Hand picked pastors.” These include Willaim Pilkington (AKA Will-I-AM), Joshuah Heitzman (AKA Home-heist-man), Jeffery Figueroa (AKA fibbing Figueroa) and last but not least, Jeff Derby (AKA Dirty Derby). Though many still call these men “Preachers” and “Pastors,” I call them false brethren, and as you read this site and listen to the audio clips that I have prepared, I believe you will agree.
This site is pertains to a particular church, a church that I Reverend P.A. Bowers attended as an associate pastor for seven years of my life. Years that I will never, ever get back, years that were practically wasted on trying to juggle church, home life, and my own salvation with a disorganization known as House of Prayer Christian Church (HOPCC), or Assembly of Prayer Christian Church in various locations. Just so there is no mix up, I’m talking about the church that is currently based out of Hinesville, Georgia, pioneered by Ron Denis and is the offshoot of NTCC. Need more clarification? The church is located at 2540 Airport Road, Hinesville, Georgia.
This is not a test and this is not a joke; real people are getting hurt (right in the church). At first glance, people who attend one of these churches think they can’t go wrong with the biblical structure, fellowship, and countless, needless, repetitious, spiritless prayer meetings. However, after months and years, they realize that the “truth” hasn’t made them free, but on the contrary, they are now bound forever by twisted, rested scriptures that the pestor (pastor) uses to bind them. At first, it’s great, “I just got saved!” “I just moved in the serviceman’s home!” “I’m heaven bound!” But the newness quickly wears off when you realize that after you’ve totally obligated and dedicated yourself to what you think is “Christ,” you come to find out that you’ve been duped into the servitude of the pastor. You might be thinking, “how is it possible for someone to go to a church for years, and not realize that something is wrong?”
We got kicked, out of the HOPPC/Assembly of Prayer/Prayer Force disorganization on April 05 2012, over a year ago. Yes, I am still hurt by the whole thing, but quickly recovering. No, I won’t dare say that I am at one hundred percent, but with God’s help, I will get there and then some.
FYI, I’m not writing all this to get back at them because of what they did to my wife and I, However, this is for those who would like to hear the truth of what really has been going on in the HOPCC churches. Please don’t end up like myself and others who have fallen to Denis the menace.
Here you will find the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. You will learn why no one was allowed to contact me, why I just disappeared with no explanation, why the pastor would never directly answer any questions about our whereabouts, and the ulterior motives that these pastors have for their members.
Listen up and listen good, because these are nothing but the facts, no third person hearsay, no, “I think he said,” no, “I heard one time,” these are things that I really seen take place. Believe what you want, think what you want and do what you want with this, it’s up to you, it’s your life, but remember, you only have one to live.
It’s been over 12 months since I set foot in one of their churches, and with no regrets I might add. I know that the people are hurting, because we keep having dreams about them, and they keep coming up in prayer, and they just look so miserable when we see them. Believe me, I did this for 20 years total (between two disorganizations with the same garbage), and none of this has been easy. I already lost friends from the NTCC split and now it’s happened again. It’s very difficult to even live normally anymore because of these scenarios replaying over and over in my head, all the painful moments make the good times look insignificantly minute.
It is very early in the morning, I just couldn’t sleep, I had to begin typing this and make it public. I don’t really understand why I had to be the one to go through this, but I did. Apparently, I’m not the only one who has suffered at the hands of such hardships. They took everything from me in one quick swipe; my character, dignity, ministry, hope, joy, trust, future home, vehicle, finances, everything! Think I’m making this up? Think I’m making this bigger than it really is? We’ll see what you say when it happens to you!
Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing
They look at the sheep (members) as thought they are stupid and will reference how dumb that sheep are and how they need a shepherd. And indeed, you are stupid for allowing such conduct to go unchallenged. If a pestor at HOPCC sees how “stupid” you are, as a wolf in sheep’s clothing, it’s feasting time for him. This church is the worst of the worst because the members know how the pestor is; how he lies, sets them up, and gives poor advice, but yet, they continue giving their full undivided attention year after year. This is the equivalent of a wolf taking off its sheep costume, and parading himself right in the open, with the real sheep accepting him as one of them. Meanwhile, he picks them off one by one, and the only response that the sheep give is a look of curiosity, and confusion. At this point, the sheep (church member), deem it best to do anything that they can to please the wolf, by sacrificing themselves (for the ministry) and their children.
This church always fails to understand that a sheep gives milk, wool, creates an obligation (ministry) and demands care attention and love, not, harshness and “obey or else!” The sheep only follows the shepherd if they know and trust him, so clearly there is something wrong with a sheep (member) who follows, but doesn’t trust or believe in the shepherd (pastor). The sheep looks to the shepherd for proper grooming, and inspection (in case of disease or malnutrition). However, the shepherd can’t force feed a sheep, or make it drink once lead to the water. There’s even a time when sheep are used for food! That’s when the pestor turns to a wolf and begins to “Prey” on them, instead of “Pray” for them. The staff (bible) isn’t used to beat or pulverize a sheep into subjection for its subversive behavior. But the staff is used for a gentle prodding, guiding the sheep in the right direction. I must say, this whole thing reminds me of a movement called The “Shepherding Movement” Click Here! to learn more about this movement.
The above pictures show 900 Bellaire Dr. Killen, Texas, the house that that my wife and I were in the process of establishing ownership of. These pictures don’t do the house justice, but clearly you can see that it was completely renovated, and designed by an architect. I mean really, what common folks do you know that has a toilet, over sized tub, double sinks, and a urinal in their master bedrooms bathroom? I would have know one person, but I guess someone else decided that since they had more money and credit that they deserved it more than the preacher who God was trying to bless. Most of my pictures were too large to upload, but I did manage some key ones that show the for sale sign, and my wife and I in the empty house.
There’s a lot that you can’t see from the pictures but, the main reason why Denis wanted this house was because out back, there were to house/sheds that were two story with full bathrooms, kitchens, water, and electricity; the perfect place for a serviceman’s home. On top of that, it had an additional storage shed.
We were having a few issues so it was taking a little longer than expected. The issues were; I was getting paid by the church, but the church would not provide me a 1099 form (which shows that I’m an employee and that taxes are being taken out). The realtor said that I needed to start getting checks instead of cash, because cash cannot be traced. And boy did this make Denis and Pilkington furious, I wonder why? Denis tried to say that we as full time ministers, are contractors and should file our own taxes. Now what kind of contractor is given a work and time schedule by the local church pastor? Denis knew all along that this would cause issues when trying to get the house, and he kept asking my wife, “did you get approved?”
The man in the picture is Joshuah Heitzman, the pestor of the second church in Killeen Texas. He was also a co-conspirator along with Pilkington, and Boles. They knew that Heitzman, ordered by Denis, had purchased the house, and said nothing about it for months. Afterwards, we realized why they had been acting so strange around us; just downright fidgety and suspicious. Pilkington would just stare strangely at me every time I spoke with one of the members. I would look over and he’d keep starring looking all crazy and what not. I now understand why; because he and Denis has a secret plan to get rid of us, and the devil had been steadily feeding him lies about me. Heitzman may or may not have know that I would be kicked out, but he couldn’t even look me in the eyes and speak. It was because they all held the secret for months that we didn’t get the house; but they knew who did!
To anyone reading this, do yourself a favor and don’t invite these people into your home and don’t tell them anything about yourself, because it will come of no good. After I took them to the house, showed them around, and received assurance that Boles (the ex-pastor of the California Oceanside church in NTCC, and ex-husband of Julie Boles), would be more than willing to help with any and all repairs/upgrades. I should have known better, it was all orchestrated by Denis, and more than likely, Boles was made to agree. True to his word, he did all the upgrades on the house; only one problem though, it wasn’t for us and we’d never see any of it. These foolish men had the audacity to go behind my back, as if GOD wasn’t watching the whole thing. Even if we should choose to make our bed in hell, the Lord will be there. And you can always ask the blind man, because he saw it all!
Deuteronomy 5:21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour’s wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour’s house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
IN OTHER WORDS: Covet not your neighbors (brothers) field, wife, house or any thing that belongs to him. Judge, how do you read the verdict on the charge of taking the brothers property? “Guilty,” On the charge of desiring the brothers wife and plotting to destroy his marriage. “Guilty,” On the charge of acquiring the brothers house. “Guilty,” On the charge of misuse of Gods servants. “Guilty.” I find Denis and his HOPCC disorganization guilty of all of the above crimes of covetousness, greed, misuse, abuse and plotting.
Oh, and just in case you’ve ever wondered why Denis calls HOPCC a “Movement,” here’s why; If he’s not “Moving” you out of your house,” then he’s “Moving” you to another city and state to live. Not to mention he’s “Moving” hundreds of thousands of dollars per year (your money), “Moving” the blame away from himself and into other people’s laps. He’s “Moving” GI’s out of their barracks, and “Moving all teens to Hinesville (where he will marry them off and control them at an early age). Gee, I think about the only thing that hasn’t been moving, is “God.” Well now you know!
This man has so many fooled into thinking that this is all the will and work of God. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again; don’t let that man in your house. Especially if you have 4+ bedrooms; him and the other men of gosh will have brothers living up in every single room before you can think to blink. Then make you feel bad if you don’t cooperate in letting him take your house and move other people in. Don’t be a sucker all your life!
Now, back to what I was saying about Home-heist-man. This has got to be one of the worst double standards, because, it was the Heitzman’s who used their credit to help purchase the Expedition that we were driving around in. To bless us like that, then later obtain the house; what’s wrong with people? Whether he cared or not, It’s obvious this man was and still is afraid of Denis and went against his better judgement to stoop to such lows. Sad thing is, come to find out, Denis had been doing this to people for years. Oh yes, I have the proof.
Unfortunately, I have to use some of the church members names for this next bit of proof. Just for the record I did and still do have the utmost respect for these brethren and their wives, even though they are still mixed up with HOPCC. Once you see this, you will understand why there is not choice in the matter. These things must be told if people are to WAKE UP!
(“Click this!” Property Record Card) At first glance, everything seems to be normal and in place. Now, take a look at the “grantor” and the “grantee” (to the left of the picture). Still nothing unusual? Well let me fill you in on a few things. Johnson purchased the house from James on 03 Apr 2008, OK, no big deal. But then Johnson sold the property to a Jeffery Derby on 22 Aug 2008. Can someone please explain why the house was sold four months later? Anyone? Well, it’s like this; brother Johnson purchased the house for he and his wife to live in, here we go again…. After seeing the house, Denis wanted it for the serviceman’s home in in Savannah, Georgia (Huff’s church). I know this because he mentioned it one time while fellowshipping, how that Huff should have gotten that house and they should have taken the other. Little did I or anyone else know, just a few months later, this would come to fruition.
Therefore, after living there for a short duration, they paid Johnson off to acquire the property. And who was the purchaser? None other than “dirty Derby,” Denis’ right hand man, and coincidentally, the one who was there to confiscate the Expedition that we were driving.
Need more proof? It’s now the serviceman home! How I came upon this interesting fact was; one day at fellowship meeting, some of us went to a restaurant and sister Johnson walked by, and one could tell that she was very sad in her soul for some reason. Denis yelled at her, and said, “no more throwing fits,” and a few other words. We didn’t understand what was going on until later when we got kicked out; I thought about it and began doing some digging. Sad thing is, that these are real good people, and they had already suffered for years under the hand of pestor Figueroa and his wife in San Diego. Oh, one more thing, guess where they moved them after the “forced” sale? To Heitzman’s house in Hinesville Ga. I will be putting more of this, in the “Downloads” section at a later date.
Wait just a minute, while were talking about “Houses,” we may as well talk about this one too. Hey! that’s Denis’ house isn’t it, yup! I wonder how much renovations in that house are actually by the book; and no I’m not talking about the “Bible book” that they use to excuse everything they do. How you going to “Obey God,” but can’t do something simple like obey the tax and building laws of the land?” I’ve got to tell you though, those brothers sure know how to lay it down on that landscape. Oh, and that play ground, what a blessing it must be to have your own private swing set and slide as a child. Must be interesting watching her play with the same three children, and her imaginary dog. Where does your child play? Let me guess, Denis’ unwanted, accidental child (That’s his own thoughts and words from his mouth) is to smart to play at a local playground with normal kids. I don’t hate the man cause he has nice things for his family, I just hate how that he acquired them. He took advantage of people to not only get his personal house, but all the other property and money that he owns. He continually kicks people out of their own homes to market them, but yet continually renovates his own; something is seriously wrong with that picture. SICKENING! You really want to know what’s crazy though, many of the members could actually afford a really nice home and car but….they’d just rather keep giving it to Denis instead. I just want to know who “Roy Denis” is, because though I never met the man, he owns the house that “Ron Denis” lives in. See for yourself: (Just type in the last name, “Denis” and click the search button. “Click here for Liberty county records” While you’re at it, may as well see what his cronies are doing; just type in their last name and see for yourself, since I’m such a big liar, and don’t know what HOPCC is really doing. Keep in mind, these property are significant to Liberty county Ga. only God knows all of their other properties. I have some for you, this just blew my mind how many houses and properties they own in Liberty county alone. Once again, these pastors and members are locked in for life, “SUCKERS!” Liberty county housing PDF (This contains just a few of the subjects Denis used, I assure you, there are more, and you’re probably one of them!)
And here were have William Pilkington, the pestor of the Killeen, Texas, Assembly of Prayer Christian Church. They decided to change their name because there is another local church with a similar name in the area. Killeen happens to be at the door step of the largest ARMY base, Fort, Hood. This works great for the likes of Pilkington, because he has an inexhaustible supply of young GI’s, who he can easily manipulate into doing his, I mean the Lords work. Every church that HOPCC has, is located near some sort of military installation. Why is this you might ask? Because GI’s are a good source of steady income, are used to being told what to do, enjoy a sense of being accepted, and don’t have much going on in life, being single and all (according to Will).
If you know him, I advise you to do your best to stay clear of him. Mr. “look at me, I pray always in the holy goat, I’m so spiritual it hurts, bring all your problems to me, or I’ll pry them out of you anyway, then I’ll put you on the spot, embarrass you, so I can make them worse, I could never be wrong, because I’m always right, Will-i-am Pilkington.” What a title! If you know him, then you will surely know exactly what I’m talking about. Unlike Heitzman, he was also a pastor in NTCC, and as fate would have it, he was also a member of Denis’ church. And yes, just like Denis, he also treats his wife like pure raw sewage. I’m sure Perfect Pilkington felt good about himself when he told me to “GET LOST,” over the phone, while in front of the brothers and sisters.
(Click to enlarge)
He received an ovation for making a trusted fellow preacher look like a disposable church member who wanted nothing to do with God. When he asked all of them, “Who wants anything to do with the Bowers?” they all said in unison, “Not me.” Spoken like a true pack of brainwashed, foolish, indecisive individuals. But we shall see what they say in that day when they get tired of making them bricks for Pastor Pharaoh in the sun. We’ll see who wants anything to do with me then. But, you know me, I’ll help them when they contact me for help.
Pilkington is such a control freak that he even had the church members watching my every move, reporting anything that they seen. How did I find this out, from him, but Figueroa did the exact same stupid thing. He was talking to me after we left (because I’d been trying to help some of the members, but they wouldn’t listen), and he said that “Some of the members have said things to me about you.” If that don’t take the cake, I don’t know what does. Interesting though how that I was so bad, that he never said anything to me about it. I know Figueroa also did this because several of the brothers told me, including my own brother-in-laws. I will be doing a complete write-up on my experiences with this hypocritical, poor excuse for a pastor of a man and his ungodly, rude, thieving, complaining, trouble-making, angry wife.
These men have a lot of blood on their hands and rest assure that God will hold them accountable for the souls he intrusted them with; the souls that they miserably failed. Pilkington has destroyed so many people throughout the years (come to think of it, all of the pastors have, and could care less), even to the point where many have wavered in their faith and gone back into sin. He started out an alright guy, but alas, Denis and the devil got the best of him. It’s crazy because even Denis mentioned to him, “Will, you used to be nice.” His wife was such a kindhearted person when I first met her, even though she’d already been put through the ringer, but through the years, even she managed to be corrupted with jealousy, and anger. If interested, you can find more about Pilkington in the “downloads section,” after all, the “Pastor Pharaoh” book was written about him.
Which is worse, being hurt by a knife or a church?
Both are painful
Both leave scars
Both leave casualties
Both are double edged
Both leave blood on hands
You know, one of the things that bothers me most about Pilkington, is that he could have had so many God loving and fearing members in the church, who believe it or not, would have even loved their pastor. Unfortunately, he’s to busy being jealous, proud, and angry to truly love the people. Instead of “members,” he has ended up with “re-members;” which are people who attended, but left. So now, his church primarily consists of a bunch of people who want to quit serving God every other week (but they’ll never admit it), and gobs of people from the Hinesville Ga. church. I guess he wants to take after daddy Denis who claims that God told him to be “Mean.” Not my words, that was out of his own mouth.
Don’t believe me? Let him tell you!

For those of you who don’t believe what I’m saying, listen to this actual “Home school teachers meeting.” Let me bring you up to par; the teachers had taken the children on a field trip to the Dallas zoo on a Wednesday, (soul winning night) and the audio is from the teachers meeting that following weekend. All along his agenda was to drop his bomb of demise, and belittlement, but he held it until the end of the “Important” teachers meeting. His issue was twofold, #1 no one called him while at the zoo to check in with him and #2 we all came in late for the soul winning meeting which began at 7:30 PM. Now mind you, he could have called any number of us, at any given time.
We got to the zoo at around noon time, and left after walking the whole zoo, and stopping for lunch while there, and stopped to eat while on the road. Keep in mind the two and a half hour or so drive back. Listen as he goes around the room with each of the sisters and interrogates them as to why they never bothered to call him. After this, the sisters were upset, crying, angry and confused. Needless to say that was the last trip to the zoo, ever. This recording represents how he talks to all the members, all the time. Bottom line, no one cared about, or respected him, that’s why they didn’t bother calling the control freak. Oh, and sir, I’m ashamed of you!
WOW! nO waY
UPDATE! – Pastor?!?! Jeff Figueroa, the leading cause of depression in San Diego California; this is where hell on earth began for my wife and I. When after graduating bible college, I move to San Diego to begin my misery, I mean ministry, as a worker (dumbed down term given to a minister who wasn’t currently a pastor). Let me assure you, we had no idea what we were getting into…..other than our supposed “New work.
It was September of 1999 when we first met at a conference and we were introduced to them along with some of the members. We were young, vibrant and eager to learn at the feet of a veteran pastor. I was 25 years old, in the prime of my life, ready to do something and anything for God; too bad he never recognized it. As we would soon come to learn, and you will also see, that this man and his wife were not who they first appeared to be.
There was a so-called sister named “Racquel,” who we met at one of the gas stations while at conference. We all said hi, and exchanged brief conversation, as we let them know we were on our way to California afterwards. Well, she went and told all the ladies in the San Diego church that my wife was stuck up, and so when we finally arrived there, the reception was less than stellar. The previous workers were leaving on really bad terms, they were very angry and stressed to say the least, a stress that I to would incur for years to come. If you ever see this man, quickly walk away before he gets the chance to smooth talk you into attending church.
San Diego would be the very first time ever that I almost lost my wife. We were both so stressed and depressed it was ridiculous. At this point in time, I didn’t know much about the ministry, but I did know this wasn’t right, and I grew sick and tired of it all quickly. This really makes me wonder, just how many people have forfeited their marriages, Christianity, and ministry because of these people?
What ever grudge that she held, she made sure it stayed strong and secure; it didn’t matter if it was against a man, woman or child. Yes, this is the woman that several of the members called “Ma’am,” instead of sister Figueroa…I think you know why. Not a single person could be in her site for long, not even her husband could stand her; and that doesn’t speak well for the “Pastors wife” of a “Holiness church.” No matter who you were, in her eyes, you we’re “Not right,” a “Sinner,” and a “Complainer;” go FIGure. Don’t act as if you never heard Denis speaking about her during fellowship, or jacking her husband up because of the way that she constantly acted; evil.
His wife would constantly be at odds with every woman in the church, setting them up against their husbands, and children, knowing that she was untouchable by virtue of being the pastors wife, but God saw it all, and He still sees it. He would stick up for her all the time as she breathed her fiery dragon breath upon the church, consuming all who would dare enter. If you have ever met her, in five minutes you would know that I am telling the truth.
He would get on this tangent talking about “There’s a skunk in the church,” though he never said who it was, I have an idea. But of course, knowing this pestor, he was probably referring to ever other lady in the church, with his wife being the exception. She would constantly gossip about my wife in front of the other ladies, and of course they couldn’t resist, so they joined in. She had no respect at all, talking about my wife’s hair, clothes, said she was lazy, and blamed everything that could be blamed, on her. Everyone else called my wife “Sister Bowers” but she insisted on calling her by her first name
Figueroa was so naive, thinking he was building a “Holy Ghost” church, when in fact, he was tearing down more than he was building up….. I think his track record speaks for itself; Continually paid church rent late (this is where his smooth talking came into play), illegally converted a horse stable into a church (in a non-commercial zone which accumulated thousands upon thousands in fines), not to mention the property had a leech field that he didn’t know about and because there were too many people living in the home, it over flooded (Which shouldn’t have been there to begin with). Great, so now for months on in, everyone coming to the church had to walk past grounds saturated with raw sewage.
I think it represented well, what was going on in the church, “Stench.” Oh, and guess who had to dig up the grounds? If you guessed the “Brothers,” you’re correct. And although they will try and say it was OK and for the work of the Lord, baloney. Does anyone at this church even know how to differentiate what the work of the Lord is versus demeaning labor. After finally realizing that this was a horrible idea, he began to rent another churches building in the area. He’s been there in San Diego since the mid 90′s and still no church to call their own, Why? Like I said, the track record speaks for itself. Hint: instead of treating people like lesser citizens, try loving, nurturing them, and stop rebuking people every chance you get.
Additionally, this is the man who tells his members that “Even when the pastor is wrong, just be obedient and and do whatever he says, and God will bless you for it.” Yes, the members actually believe this manipulative, mind-taming way of thinking. So you mean to tell me; obey the pastor when he’s full of self, sin, not thinking correctly and continually executing poor judgment? Where’s that at in the bible? And if you’re a member there in San Diego reading this, please don’t act all pious like this stuff isn’t true, because you’re still living under this umbrella with holes. He preached about being “Holy” (righteous) but lived a “Holey” (full of holes) example of a life before the church. No matter how he tries to write his legacy, in the end he wont have a legacy to stand on. Though some may take this as me finding fault with him, you might want to consider reading your bible first, compare the living word with what I’m saying versus Figueroa’s ways, and you tell me if he’s fit to be a pastor or not! He always liked to say, “That’s what’s wrong with the church,” no sir, you’re what’s wrong with the church, there’s nothing wrong with the people, their just looking for a leader to get them to heaven, not someone to drive them to insanity.
Meanwhile….while I was at work, he would talk to my wife after prayer meetings about how proud that I was, a bunch of foolish talk, talk that only served one purpose, to tear down and divide. He was a pro when it came to planting discord between husband and wife, and I guarantee you, that he hasn’t lost his touch. In fact, after being put under Denis’ authority (the man who says his wife and daughter are spiritually and mentally in the basement), I’m sure his relationship with his wife hasn’t improved at all. It’s interesting to note here that on several occasions, even Denis tried to help him with his wife, but to no avail, she even made the apostate, I mean “Apostle” tap out. Denis mentioned, and even bragged (Mr. I’m not bragging) in front of everyone at fellowship that in “Two years,” he would change Lisa Marie Figueroa…..into what? Because you and I both know its been over 7 years and no change for the better. You can sweep and clean all you want, the demons have returned.
There’s a lot of people who know “Pastor Fig,” but for the wrong reasons; not because they found a pastor, true man of God, friend or confidant, but he is indeed well remembered and talked about as quite the opposite. He just didn’t get it, people would come to that church in “Droves,” but he “drove” them right out. Before they would even get to learning about God real good, they were disposed to his false motivational speeches, and ultra pushy tactics. Believe me when I say, there’s a lot of people who absolutely despise this man for breaking up their families, and his wife was one of them. Truth is, she hates him, and even tried to leave the church on many occasions. Say it aint so, I could, but it is. Sometimes it was “Hush, hush,” and other times they would just act a fool in front of everyone. He had to pep talk her on a weekly basis just to get her to shut her mouth, leave people alone, and stop being rebellious towards him. When will people learn, “You can’t tame them demons.” Yep, the pastors wife! But in the end, after the split, that’s what all of his children did to him, “Split.” He was still a pastor, for what reason, I know now, because the bible clearly says that a bishop must be blameless and must be one who rules well his own house. If you can’t take care of your own family, then how came you to rule God’s house?
After the “NTCC” split he was one of the main people feeding Denis a bunch of garbage about me, because Denis didn’t even know who I was before then. That trash stunk, but yet stuck on my name, and followed me around forever in the ministry. No one had respect for me, because of this man’s ability to destroy every single attempt that I had to make a first impression. Why didn’t I do something about it? The same reason you didn’t. Actually for many years, I didn’t even know, and it wasn’t until we started fellowshipping at Denis’ house during conferences that Denis spilled the beans. He wanted to know things about me, and stated the things that Figueroa was saying about me, and in that, he wanted me to tell on him. I never said a thing, but Figueroa had to bare his shame. I have several years of info that can be said here, but obviously I wouldn’t get anything else done on this site. This tidbit of information is just for starters, but as I promised, here it is! That’s all for the moment on the “Home” page. This is but a glimpse of what goes on in HOPCC, but continue to check the “downloads” section for weekly downloads and in-depth exposure of this wicked, undercover regime.
After reading and more than likely hearing so many things about House Of Prayer Christian Church/Assembly Of Prayer Christian Church, one has to ask the question; “Is this stuff for real?” I will put it to you like this; either this is the best fabrication in history, or all of it’s true. Because when presented with infallible proofs, the truth shows itself to be very evident. There really is no in between when it comes to the truth. It gets no more “Cut and dry” than this. Although I must add, that it’s a shame that I have to write such things about a church and its leaders, when I could be promoting, and praising them for their character and spirituality instead. However, we can’t have things such as Holy Ghost filled revivals, mass healing and conversion when there is a constant supply of wickedness in the church, especially at the top. No doubt, people can still get saved in HOPCC, because that’s just what God does, but eventually, salvation, joy, hope and peace will all fizzle out and dissipate to a great BIG NOTHING!
Now my question to you is: if you’re still a member of this church after agreeing with me on too many accounts to keep track of, then why are you still attending this church? Think about it, these preachers just shrugged their shoulders at my excommunication (a preacher with 13 + years in the ministry, not including bible college and attendance as a member), with no explanation or justification needed, no challenge proposed, no biblical basis discussed, no prayer, and no conscience. Truth is, ask these pastors individually and they will say, “Ask the Pastor,” “I don’t know,” “You been on that internet again,” or “He wasn’t right,” but who will explain exactly what happened to us? No one. Wake up people this is what you’re a part of, and if they did this to me, what makes you any different? “How long will YOU halt between two opinions.” Is this the work of “God” or the work of “Man?” You know that you’ve not only questioned your pastor too many times to count, but you even questioned his constant poor advice and other motives.
For those who knew me personally, ask yourself these questions; was my wife and I good to you and your family or not? Did we ever do you dirty? Did we purposely embarrass you every chance we got? Did you ever feel as though we hated you, or just feel down right unapproachable? Now does all of the junk they said about my character in years past, and the foolish reasons as to why we left the church even add up? No it doesn’t, therefore when are you going to stop letting these men rule over your life with made up trash about us and twisted scriptures. Once again, it’s your life, I can’t live it for you, but I can tell you this, it gets so much better when you get away from HOPCC and really begin to trust in God. Trust me, the sun will shine brighter than it had in a very long time, you will lose that miserable feeling that you always have, depression is cured, indecisiveness is gone, and for once in your life, you will have a true freedom in Jesus Christ. I love you all, each and every one of you, yes even the pastors, but something has to change, people can’t continue to go to church years on in being unfulfilled, and when it’s said and done, they find themselves in hell. I’m here to help.
