I don't think the fella named Ichabod is still available.Just me said:
I honestly don't know that much about him; I've heard him preach once or twice I think, but because he defended the Vineyard regime, I was uneasy about him.Just me said:
Well said. Thank you for the updates; you turned out to be right in what you said.Tanner said:This closes a dark chapter in the history of a church I once loved. I saw many bad things come out when our pastor died in jail. I was optimistic that Ross would come help heal the church move away from the darkness. In my opinion he made it worse and protected people that helped facilitate the evil, that had taken place.
We left the church and stayed in touch with a few people inside, Ross continued to hurt people and divide families. When all this new stuff came out I was hoping it would close the church.
Now that he has resigned, I have closure on that chapter. All of our remaining friends have left the church. I no longer have a dog in the hunt. I wish them well and hope they do a better job of replacing him, than we did last time.

I pray that the church will see someone committed to exalting Christ and Him alone.
He can?t leave until his legal troubles are settled.Just me said:As for Tom and those who followed him up to the new location, their circle of influence is oh so small these days!! OBC is just down to a couple students and they are doing classes by correspondence so it is back to its Institute days. The church runs a single buss on Sundays and the church school has its lowest numbers in years. All of which I am personally very thankful for.
But now the question, "Will Ross return to Okc and Tom?"
Also Ross' grandson Jesse is professional bodybuilder now.WHBS survivor said:I never like bob ross. And he never liked me. I wasnt a kid of the church elite at WHBC, so I was a nobody. My little brother and I got into a fray at a church function b/c lil brother (5yrs old) didnt want to listen to 13yr old big bro. Lil bro fell out in the floor screaming and Ross jumped in telling me to push someone around my own size. At 13, i was taller than Ross.
He stink eyed me at every teen event.
I don't think any more has been shared. There hasn't been a court date announced ( that i have heard ) for the sides to bring their cases so I'm wondering if it cant be proven.Vince Massi said:I check the news occasionally to see how the charges against Bob went, an I can't find anything. Does anybody know how things were settled?
Ah yes, "Don't Judge" -- the cry of the worldly Christian.TommyBoy said:Still nothing has been finalized. Not sure if hot got out of jail or if he'll be allowed to pastor another IFB church. His grandson Jesse Jackson made a Facebook live video on "Don't Judge" pertaining to his grandfather.
