When Reverend Snow closed his church, The Carpenter Shop in Nashville TN in July 2006, he changed the locks and refused to allow anyone in to claim personal property inside the building.
In May 2006, his now ex-wife who was the director of their television studio, wanted to produce programs profiling missing people to be aired by a major Christian television network.
My grandson has been missing since May 2003 and I know other families of missing people through missing person's organizations. At Mrs. Snow's request, I solicited these organizations and families to send biographies, pictures, toys, clothing and belongings of the missing child or adult that could be used in video production that could identify the individual. I was assured that these materials would be returned to these families.
Because of my trust and belief in this project and my "pastor" and church, I promised these families that their precious property would be handled with loving care and returned to them when the filming of their story was done. About 10 or 12 families mailed packages to the church/studio. One of those priceless packages is some of the few original recent pictures and favorite things that had belonged to my missing grandson.
I had an attorney contact Reverend Snow's attorney in an effort to retrieve these packages, now in an unknown storage facility. I was told that Reverend Snow said that he was not responsible because "that was his wife's deal". That is true, but he has the key to the storage and refuses to cooperate.
I spoke with his ex-wife last week and she is afraid that he is not paying the rent on the storage space. If that is the case, everyone who has personal belongings that were in the church/studio when he moved it to storage, may lose everything.
This property may not mean much to this "man of God" and award-winning Gospel singer and former beloved pastor to many, but he is being very unfair to many hurting people.
I want to get my grandson's memorabilia and return the property to the families of the missing who placed their trust in me.
