Pastor Mark Lewis is sitting in jail because he cannot raise one million dollars bail. His congregation is selling church property and his possessions in an effort to raise bail.
Fellowship Baptist Church Pastor Mark Lewis remains behind bars on more than $1 million bail, accused of putting three people up to firebombing his ex-girlfriend’s home.
The pastor was rearrested after bailing out the first time for allegedly fraudulently registering his church, which was used as bail collateral.
Sarah Bongard is one of the jailed pastor’s devoted parishioners. She says the church needs the money to help it’s leader.
“It’s been a little rough, but God’s working it out, we know that,” she said. “Knowing that he’s in control, even of getting our pastor out and restoring our church to what it should be.”
I wish knew about this beforehand, I would have bought one of his bibles to add to my collection of holy books owned by corrupt men of God. I would have bid as high as a dollar.
