Congrats! Michelle Williams Gets Engaged To Pastor Chad Johnson

Michelle Williams and her longtime beau Chad Johnson announced their engagement to the world on Thursday!

Williams and Johnson spoke exclusively to People Magazine about their love story–revealing they’ve actually been secretly engaged for over a month.

“We could not contain this any longer!” Williams said to the outlet, clearly tinged with excitement!

The pair revealed that they got engaged on March 21 in Pebble Beach, California, almost a year after they first met. They plan to get married later this summer.

In March of 2017, the two were guests at a spiritual retreat in Arizona, run by Johnson. Johnson, 40, is a pastor and life coach who also serves as the chaplain for the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers.

In a recent interview with “The Real” Williams, 37, shared that she was in the midst of a depression and had just ended a relationship prior to meeting her now-fiancee.

“I was in a horrible, dark place,” Williams said, 37. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.”

The two instantly connected, and remained in contact after Johnson’ close friend encouraged they keep in touch. But, a flirty text from Johnson almost ended the romance before it even began.

“I tried to roll in with some mac daddy game — and I tried to flirt a little bit and said something like, ‘How about you and I connect sometime?’ And right away, she texted right back with one word and six question marks behind it: ‘Connect??????’” Johnson said. “I thought she had dissed me. So I was embarrassed, and I didn’t reach back out to her because I thought I’d ruined the friendship.”

However, a week later Williams sent Johnson a DM, responding to an Instagram story Johnson posted him with his nephews.

“The rest is history,” Johnson said. Their texts morphed into calls and spending quality time together. The two went on to share their first kiss last July while in the Dominican Republic for a wedding. There Johnson revealed his true intentions for Williams.

“I told her, ‘I’ve been looking. I don’t want to look anymore. I’m done. My search is over,’” Johnson recalls of the magical moment.

“What kept drawing me and drawing me at first was I felt like I could be myself,” says Williams, who pointed out that Johnson refers to her by her birth name. “My first name is Tenitra; my middle name is Michelle. I felt like I could be Tenitra: just ratchet, I didn’t have to have on any makeup, if I had to have on my hair bonnet — he just made me feel very safe in being myself.”

Johnson planned the whole proposal secretly–earlier in March he flew to her hometown of Rockford, Illinois to ask for her family’s blessing and recorded the whole affair.

A few weeks later the two were enjoying time together in Pebble Beach when Johnson brought up their first failed text exchange.

“We were replaying the whole text message, recreating the moment,” Johnson says. “I was like, ‘Hey, what about if you and me connected?’ She sent me back a text saying, ‘I’ll check my availability.’ And I signaled over to the waiter, and she brought out the iPad and played the video of me being on the proposal tour.”

“I started weeping and wailing when I see all these special people,” Williams said after she watched the video of Johnson’s video with her family. “Towards the end of the video, something in my head said, ‘Pull yourself together! He’s about to propose! Stop all this crying!

Johnson presented Williams with a 5-carat diamond from  L.A. jeweler Denis Mahgerefteh.  “I was just losing it!” Williams said.

Both hope that their interracial love story inspires.

“I’m white, she’s black,” says Johnson. “What a special time for our relationship to be on display in that respect with the tension in the world and in our country.”

As far as whether Williams’ band mates make an appearance, the answer is definitely.

“We’re wanting all of our friends and family to be there. So it’s looking good!”

Congrats to the lovebirds!

Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell Says He’s Not Guilty Of Fraud

Just days after being charged by federal prosecutors, Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, Houston megachurch pastor and longtime spiritual adviser to former President George W. Bush, took to the altar of his church on Easter Sunday to defend himself.

According to KHOU11, Cadwell told his parishioners that the indictments against him were just a “pit stop” on his way to the Promised Land.

As you know, I’ve been in the news lately,” Caldwell said. “From my mouth to your ears, I am not guilty.”

Caldwell, 64, who pastors Windsor Village United Methodist Church, was indicted in federal court last Thursday for allegedly using his influence as pastor of the 16,000-member megachurch to lure “vulnerable and elderly” investors into a scheme that has seen them lose over $ 1 million.

Gregory Alan Smth, 55, manager of Shreveport, Louisiana-based Smith Financial, was also named in the indictment for allegedly using his influence to lure investors to pay more than $ 1 million to invest in historical Chinese bonds. Both of them now face 13 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy, and money laundering charges, prosecutors said in a news release.

The Securities and Exchange Commission, which is also suing both men for violating financial laws, said that in 2013 and 2014, Smith, who has been barred from the broker-dealer business by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority since 2010, along with Caldwell, allegedly targeted “vulnerable and elderly” investors, giving them false assurances that the bonds–which were “essentially worthless” with no meaningful investment value–were worth millions.

Prosecutors said the historical bonds were issued by the former Republic of China prior to losing power to the Communist government in 1949. Smith allegedly told some investors that the money raised would be used to acquire more Chinese bonds. Prosecutors said he repeatedly told investors that the bonds were “risk-free,” “guaranteed,” and “safe” and that there were buyers lined up to purchase the bonds. Smith also told investors that the bonds would either be sold to a third party or redeemed by the Chinese government.

They are not recognized by China’s current government and have no investment value,” United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook said in the release.

Prosecutors said Smith and Caldwell promised high rates of return, sometimes three to 15 times the value of the investments. And instead of investing the funds, prosecutors said they allegedly used the approximately $ 1.8 million of investor money to pay off personal expenses including personal loans, credit card bills, mortgage payments in the case of Caldwell, and luxury vehicle automobiles in the case of Smith. Prosecutors said offshore individuals allegedly received most of the remaining funds.

Caldwell and Smith allegedly raised at least $ 3.4 million from 29 elderly investors, some of whom liquidated their annuities to invest in the scheme.

Throughout 2014, prosecutors said Caldwell and Smith “continued to send emails and texts promising investors that they would be paid.” The “lulling emails,” prosecutors said, usually provided elaborate explanations for why Caldwell had been unable to sell the bonds. Excuses ranged from issues “pertaining to international currency exchanges” to “failures of international organizations like the International Monetary Fund or the World Bank to approve the redemptions.”

“Our laws do not tolerate materially misleading statements to exploit vulnerable investors who, in this case, looked up to a prominent pastor,” said Eric I. Bustillo, director of the SEC’s Miami Regional Office in a press release. “Caldwell took advantage of his victims, encouraging them to remain faithful even as he and Smith broke that faith, stealing from elderly investors in an outright fraud.”

Dan Cogdell, an attorney for Caldwell, told the Huffington Post in a statement that the accusations against the pastor are “simply false.”

Cogdell said his client believed the bonds were legitimate and that he had invested a significant sum of his own personal money into the scheme.

Everyone who has asked for their money back, because the process is taking longer than expected, has received their money back,” Caldwell said during services on Sunday.



Caldwell started his career as an investment banker and bond broker. He has pastored Windsor Village Church since 1982, growing the congregation from 25 people to the nearly 16,000 members it is today, according to the church’s website. Caldwell served as former President George W. Bush’s closest spiritual adviser and officiated the wedding for his daughter Jenna in 2008. He endorsed presidential candidate Barack Obama that same year, donated to his political campaign, and went on to become one of President Obama’s spiritual advisers.

He has launched various community development projects in the Houston area, including schools, an AIDS outreach center, and a nutrition program. He published The Gospel of Good Success: A Road Map to Spiritual, Emotional and Financial Wholeness in 1999, in which he discusses how he transformed his megachurch into a “Kingdom-building machine” and advises readers on how to “create wealth God’s way,” among other things.

“This is not a get-rich-quick scheme,” Caldwell told the Dallas Morning News in a 1999 interview about the book. “It’s about being faithful to God and receiving what God has for you,” he said, and being “a blessing on God’s terms to others.’

Pastor Otis Moss III Shares 3 Ways to Get Involved in the Green Revolution

moss

Chicago’s South Side gets more media coverage for its gun violence than for its gardens, but Trinity United Church of Christ is telling a different story. Trinity, a massive 8,500 member, five-generation, predominantly African-American church led by a visionary pastor, has joined the green church revolution in the heart of the South Side.

Their witness is a timely one. As the perils of climate change come to an ever-more furious boil, how the church responds is as much a matter of leadership as it is morality. Leadership, because it takes a mammoth effort to mobilize such a large community toward anything, and morality because the stakes are dangerously high.

Enter Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, III, the pastor of Trinity. Rev. Moss has helped lead the rising tide of Black churches speaking out for the environment. Under Moss’ leadership, Trinity has planted the George Washington Carver community vegetable garden (which teaches young people about gardening and science), started a Black farmer’s market in a food desert, swapped out toxic cleaning chemicals for non-toxic ones, and mobilized millions of dollars to build a green roof (a roof covered in vegetation that absorbs rainfall and regulates temperature and accommodates solar power).

Our planet is groaning for prophetic churches that can live resurrection truth in the midst of a warming climate. It’s why I was particularly eager to speak to Rev. Moss. Most of us may not be part of a church with thousands of people, but we do live on the same planet, and so we must all act.

I hoped to find out how we might be a part of this moral call to lift up our communities with an environmental response. Here are three key insights that came from my conversation with Pastor Moss to get the rest of us started:

Start with understanding your own experience.

Embedded in each person’s story are all of the elements needed to develop a care for the earth. It’s just a matter, as Jesus said, to have the “eyes to see.” Spend time outside? Care about health? Want global stability (or security) and peace? Want to fight racism? Eat food? All of these can be trail markers to discover a care for the earth, even if the term “environmentalist” is too loaded.

For Moss, his family’s experience in the rural South made the cause personal.

“The kernel for all of this [greening the church] really came from my childhood and witnessing my parents speak about their experience of the South, growing up, witnessing my mother and father being very conscious about food and food justice,” he said. “Then I went to Morehouse College, and I was part of a community of men and women who were very concerned about these issues.”

This concern wasn’t just for distant polar bears; this was for his community, for his family (indeed, Moss’ wife is a food justice advocate and has played a tremendous role in this effort), and for the future of Trinity. He leads not from the “concept” of good environmental ideas; rather, these efforts are a matter of personal identity and fundamental values.

Expect push back.

Moss stepped into a long lineage of beloved leadership at Trinity, and he pushed for greening the church while he was (relative to Trinity’s 56-year history) the new kid on the block. Launching this initiative was not easy.

“I received very typical church push back. I was the new pastor with the new idea, so people said, ‘We don’t know you, therefore if you make a suggestion we push back.’”

The first step was making sure that everyone was talking about the same thing. “Environmentalist,” “green,” and “sustainability” all are loaded words, and they resonated differently with Trinity’s elder members in particular.

“When I made the announcement to renovate Trinity’s roof to be a green roof, I went to the barber to hear what people were saying, because barbers hear a lot from the community,” Moss said. “He told me that one of the older members said, ‘That new young pastor wants to put green on top of the church!’”

To clarify vocabulary, Moss created small groups—especially with the seniors. Once he could sit down with ten people at a time to share the vision, the community came alive. Suddenly, elders were telling stories of their mother’s herbal remedy, or grandparents growing organic food on the land before “organic” was even a concept. The seniors—some of whom were previously opponents of the project—became evangelists for a green church.

From there, it was a matter of bringing in as many trusted voices to speak to as many groups of people that were in the church: inviting a local actress to speak to the youth; bringing in a medical professional to convince the congregation. Moss is a prolific preacher, but he counteracted resistance to this project not by speaking more, but by listening and bringing in a chorus of voices to do the “preaching” for him.

Talk about Jesus and be the church. 

While plenty of secular non-profits plant gardens and green roofs, the church uniquely offers to the healing of the planet a narrative (and power) of the Gospel and the tenacity of Gospel-people.

“The church has a unique location of being a village,” said Moss. “I know of no other institution that has the ability to bless a baby, care for an elder, fund a scholarship for a teenager, work with a couple on the verge of divorce, organize a neighborhood after a shooting, visit people in jail, advocate against mass incarceration, have a farmers market, employ people who come out of prison, and help people understand how all of that is related to what [theologian Paul] Tillich calls ’the ultimate concern,’ the love of Christ.”

Grounded in the liberating love of Jesus, the church can move powerfully into environmental spaces offering a completely unique witness.

Each of our communities faces an overburdened Creation. We have a difficult road ahead. Despite all of this weight, Moss’ last words of advice ring true for anyone getting desiring to defend God’s Creation: “I would suggest that whatever you start, do it with a deep sense of prayer and with laughter.”

About the Author:

Tyler Sit is pastor of New City Church, a community based in South Minneapolis that focuses on environmental justice. Both Moss and Sit are Fellows at the Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE).

Say What Now? Pastor Denies Saying He Wants to Eat Nicki Minaj’s Booty on Instagram [Photos]

Nicki Minaj posted a rather cakey selfie on Saturday and apparently a pastor couldn’t help but express his desires.

 

via Complex:

The man in question was identified as William Henry Dewberry III, whose Facebook page lists him as an Elder at the Church of God in Christ in Memphis, Tennessee. Yes, this self-described “God Fearing Man & Pastor” appears to have been caught telling Nicki Minaj he wanted to eat her ass in a public forum.

But there are quite a few holes in this story. For one, the church he has listed as his professional home is not even remotely close to where he keeps his actual home. His location on Facebook (in addition to recent photos) places him in Columbus, Georgia, which is a six-plus hour drive from the Church of God in Christ. Perhaps Dewberry just hasn’t updated where he sets up shop yet—and he has moved around a bit due to work with the U.S. Army—but it’s a red flag all the same.

There’s also a recent post from the “dewberry_2017” account that does not look at all pastor-like, with the page going on an extended, profanity-laced tirade directed at a woman on Facebook.

On his behalf, the real Dewberry is denying the profile in question belongs to him. In a post on his Facebook page, Dewberry asked his friends to report the account claiming to be him.

“Saints, I need your help,” reads Dewberry’s post. “Somebody created a fake Instagram page under my name. I don’t know who did this. But, this needs to come down ASAP! May somebody report this IMMEDIATELY! I did not create this. I already have an Instagram page, and this one ain’t me!!!!”

The account he claims is private, so it’s hard to verify, but at the very least has a different picture and is a separate entity from the account that told Nicki Minaj they were coming for her booty.

If “dewberry_2017” is an imposter, they’ve done a damn good job of keeping this act up. Someone has been cataloging photos of Dewberry and his loved ones from that account since January 2016, over a year-and-a-half prior to the comment being dropped on Minaj’s instagram. That’s a difficult act to keep up for that amount of time, and some of Dewberry’s own Facebook friends remained unconvinced that he was being duped.

Will the real Dewberry please stand up? I suppose this is an unsolved mystery for now, up there in scale with whether Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster are real.

Complex has reached out to Dewberry for comment, and will update this post if we hear back from him. In the meantime, everyone do yourself a favor and stop leaving thirsty comments on social media feeds, regardless of your profession or who the subject of admiration is. It’s almost never going to end well.

Do you believe the pastor? We’re not sure if we do…

You could say Pastor Tim Christensen is a pretty dedicated fan of Jesus Christ, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t still have room in his heart for the San Francisco 49ers.

When his scheduled 11 a.m. worship service at Gold Hill Lutheran Church in Butte, Montana coincided with the 49ers vs. Panthers kick off time, he was left with a theological quandary. One that he refused to fumble.

At a pace that would make any running back proud, Pastor Christensen led the quickest service ever recorded for his congregation, and, upon finishing, yanked back his robe to reveal a red San Francisco tee.

Luckily for Pastor Christensen, the 49ers won handily on Sunday. No Hail Mary pass needed.
